On-Site Drug Screening: Solutions for Safe & Productive Environments

For many employers, drug testing is a critical investment in productivity and worker safety. Here are just a few compelling reasons it is crucial to consistently screen for drug abuse:

  • 66% Increase in Absenteeism: Drug users are significantly more likely to miss work.
  • 300% Higher Health Benefit Utilization: Drug users incur much higher healthcare costs.
  • 90% Rise in Disciplinary Actions: Drug use leads to more workplace issues and disciplinary measures.
  • Higher Turnover Rates: Drug users are more likely to leave jobs, increasing recruitment and training costs (U.S. Small Business Administration).

Implementing a robust drug testing policy not only saves money but also promotes a healthier and more efficient workplace. While traditional drug testing can be costly, on-site rapid testing offers a cost-effective alternative.

What Is Point-of-Collection Drug Testing?

Point-of-collection drug testing is conducted on-site, providing rapid results without the need for laboratories or a Medical Review Officer (MRO) in most cases. This method is allowed in most states and is particularly efficient because the majority of tests return negative results. Non-negative results can then be sent to a laboratory for confirmation, saving both time and money.

Benefits of Point-of-Collection Testing:

  • Immediate Results: No waiting for lab processing, which speeds up decision-making.
  • Cost-Effective: Reduces the need for expensive lab tests and MRO reviews for negative results, potentially saving up to 50% per test compared to traditional methods.
  • Convenient: Testing can be done on-site or even in the field, minimizing disruptions to your operations.
  • Compliance-Friendly: Meets regulatory requirements in most states. We have drug test solutions compliant with regulations in all 50 states.

Point-of-collection employee drug testing is a growing trend that can enhance your workplace safety and productivity. Consider incorporating it into your drug testing policy today to reap these benefits.
