Top reasons employers conduct drug testing

For many industries and organizations, pre-employment drug testing helps maintain a safer, more productive work environment. Here are three reasons to drug test for employment:

Promote high standards of safety

Pre-employment and routine drug testing protects the safety, health, and welfare of employees and customers.

Comply with regulations

Industry-specific laws and regulations, as well as your corporate policy, may require drug testing.

Lower workers' compensation rates

Drug screening helps prevent on-the-job accidents and injuries related to alcohol or drug use.

Why drug testing is important

The nation’s ongoing crisis of illegal substance abuse makes drug screening for employment a growing focus for employers across the country. A drug screening program helps:

Prevent drug use on the job

Routine drug screening helps ensure employees remain free of substance abuse on and off the job.

Reduce absenteeism and turnover

Drug-free workplace policies can reduce absenteeism and improve productivity and worker retention.

Safeguard assets

Drug testing may help prevent fraud, embezzlement, or other forms of workplace theft to fund an addiction problem.
