Pre-Employment Drug And Alcohol Testing

Pre-employment drug and alcohol testing is a workplace screening process that is conducted before an individual is hired for a job. Its primary purpose is to identify and assess whether job applicants have used drugs or alcohol recently.

Pre-employment drug testing can save your business time and money. By implementing pre-screening, you can reduce accidents, absenteeism, workplace incidents and potential legal liabilities.

Drugs We Test For

A typical pre-employment drug test includes the Australian and New Zealand Standard drugs, including (but not limited to):

  • Cannabis — Marijuana use can impact short-term memory, impair thinking, and hinder the completion of complex tasks. These risks can be compounded in jobs that require manual labour or the use of heavy equipment.
  • Cocaine — Creates potential absentee workers who are more likely to be aggressive when under the influence. Employees who abuse cocaine can be harder to work with and a hazard when operating heavy machinery.
  • Opiates — Opiates like heroin are extremely dangerous. The misuse of opiates can impact accident rates, theft, tardiness, absenteeism, and productivity at the workplace.
  • Amphetamines — Abuse can heavily impact focus, decision-making, vision, and mood. An employee on amphetamines becomes a risk to themselves and everyone around them.

We can also screen for prescription, synthetic and designer drugs.
