Proper management of a random drug and alcohol testing program can help organizations to better mitigate the safety, legal and compliance risks associated with drug use in the workplace.
For federally regulated organizations and other non-regulated industries, an effective random drug and alcohol testing program can help maintain compliance with applicable regulations and mitigate liability and safety risks. Random drug and alcohol testing programs are a critical part of a drug-free workplace policy because they can help to ensure that workers continue to uphold the drug-free standards of the work environment throughout their employment.
Whether your organization maintains a drug-free workplace policy or is required to conduct random drug and alcohol testing by a regulatory agency such as the FAA or Department of Transportation (DOT), it is important to administer the random drug and alcohol testing process properly. A random drug and alcohol testing policy is ineffective if it does not meet best practices and achieve compliance with regulatory standards.
