Why Should Employers Order Drug and Alcohol Testing?

More and more companies are conducting employee drug testing in the workplace, and there are several reasons why company drug testing is so important. Everyone has a responsibility in fighting the war on substance abuse. When companies perform random drug testing in the workplace, they are helping the community.

When employees have drugs in their system, they are likely to be less productive. If the employees are doing drugs while they are working, they will be even less productive. Employees under the influence may also present a risk to other employees, customers, and society itself.

When you’re hiring a new candidate, you want to be sure you’ve got the best person for the job. A drug test can confirm that you’ve chosen a new employee who meets your company’s standards.

Taking advantage of professional employee drug and alcohol testing programs offered by Barada Associates will keep your employees motivated to be their best selves, and help you identify anyone in your company who may need support, including being moved to safety-sensitive duties.

Our Substance Abuse Testing Process

In order to further simplify your pre-employment screening process, Barada Associates is pleased to facilitate a non-Department of Transportation (DOT) drug-testing program.

Barada Associates partners with a network of reputable, national laboratories from Quest and LabCorp to process five-panel and 10-panel urinalysis, hair testing, and Breathalyzer drug and alcohol tests at convenient locations throughout the United States. For HR Managers with appropriate experience and policies, we can provide instant-read tests for immediate results at your location.

A standard drug test screens for such substances as THC (Marijuana), Cocaine (Crack), Methamphetamine (Ecstasy), Amphetamine, Opiates (Morphine), PCP, Methadone, Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, and Tricyclic Antidepressants. Other drugs and chemicals can also be searched for upon request.

We handle all chain of custody documents to ensure their veracity, and in many cases, offer electronic chains of custody (depending upon the testing partner we work with).

Test results are returned for your review securely and confidentially through Barada Online. Each positive return is verified by an MRO (Medical Review Officer) — a licensed medical doctor who is an expert in the substance abuse testing field.

Contact Barada Associates to schedule your company’s next round of drug and alcohol testing.
