What are the elements of a workplace drug testing program?
In order to require a drug testing program among employees, the following must be implemented:
What can your workplace drug test for?
It depends. Is your company federally regulated? If so, then the panel that is commonly used by government agencies includes commonly abused substances, including THC, Opiates, PCP, Cocaine, and Amphetamines. Non-federal panels typically include the federal panel plus prescription medications and performance-enhancing drugs.
What is the most common drug testing methodology?
When it comes to drug testing, urinalysis is the standard for all federally regulated testing. However, other methodologies are available for non-federal testing and include hair, oral fluid, and more. To learn more about the pros and cons of each testing methodology click here.
Can my company do random drug testing?
Refer to your company's substance abuse policy. Test types are often determined by state and federal legislation. Testing procedures are outlined in your company policy.
What are the benefits of on-site drug testing?
What drugs SHOULD NOT be tested for?
Propoxyphene (Darvon and Darvocet) and Methaqualone (quaaludes) are two drugs that were commonly tested for that are no longer manufactured and should be removed from company drug policies.

Drug tests vary, depending on what types of drugs are being tested for and what types of specimens are being collected. Urine, hair, saliva (oral fluid), or sweat samples can be used as test specimens.
In federally regulated programs, only urine samples are collected, although the Secretary of Health and Human Service has released proposed guidelines for the inclusion of oral fluid specimens.
Drug tests commonly screen for five categories of drugs: Amphetamines, Cocaine, Marijuana, Opiates and Phencyclidine (PCP,) however additional categories for non-federal testing may include safety-sensitive prescription drugs such as Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Hydrocodone, Oxycodone, Methadone as well as street drugs.
