Customer Case Studies

Drug testing in the workplace

Workplace drug testing is a common practice in many businesses and organisations across the UK. The goal of workplace drug testing is to create a safe, drug-free work environment and to ensure that employees or job candidates are able to perform their duties effectively and safely.

Under UK law, drug testing in the workplace must be carried out in a way that is fair, balanced, and respectful of employees’ privacy. Employers must also have a clear and legitimate reason for drug testing, such as ensuring the safety and productivity of their employees or complying with industry regulations.

Employers should also have a written drug and alcohol testing policy in place that sets out the circumstances under which drug testing at work will be conducted, how it will be carried out, and what the consequences will be for employees who test positive for drugs or alcohol.

Employees have the right to refuse to take a drug test, but this may have consequences, such as disciplinary action or the termination of their employment. It is important for employees to be aware of their rights and the drug and alcohol testing policy of their workplace.

An ideal choice for the workplace:
  • Quick and easy – Just seconds to collect a fingerprint sample, results in ten minutes
  • Hygienic and portable – Fuss-free drug testing anytime, almost anywhere
  • Versatile and dignified – Ideal for pre-employment screening, random and for-cause testing

Benefits

There are several reasons why employers should choose to introduce workplace drug testing. Here are a few:

Safety

One of the main reasons for drug testing in the workplace is to ensure the safety of employees and the general public. The use of drugs or alcohol can impair an individual’s ability to perform their job duties safely, which can put themselves and others at risk.

Productivity

Drug use can also negatively impact an employee’s productivity and overall job performance, as well as their mental health. Employers may choose to implement drug testing to identify and address any issues related to drug use that may be affecting an employee’s work.

Legal compliance

In certain industries, such as transportation or healthcare, employers are required by law to drug test employees.

Company image

A workplace drug testing program can also help to improve the image of a company and demonstrate to employees, customers, and the general public that the company takes drug use seriously and is committed to creating a safe and productive work environment.

Insurance costs

Finally, some employers may introduce drug testing to try to reduce insurance costs. Insurance companies may offer discounts to companies that have a drug testing program in place, as drug use can increase the risk of accidents and injuries on the job.
