What Are the Right Drug Panels For Your Employees?

Your employees could help you great the best business possible, or they could completely bring it down. The cost for replacing a salaried employee is equivalent to six to nine months of their salary. Investing in employees means you need to be sure you are getting what you think you are. There are plenty of factors you should consider when choosing a drug test for your business. 

Consider Your Business’s Location

Certain drugs are more prevalent in some areas than others. For example, in 2014, Missouri lead the country with 1,825 meth-related incidents (including labs and dumpsites of chemicals, glassware, and other equipment.) As an employer, you can conclude from this information that it is a safe choice to make sure a meth test is on the panel.

Know Your Industry

If you work in a certain industry, your business might already be required to test for specific drugs. The transportation industry requires you to complete DOT testing on all of your employees and if you work in warehousing or construction there is a good chance you will need to follow OSHA guidelines.

Think About Your Average Employee

Studying drug use rates among people who are in the same field and the average age of your employees to help you choose which drug panel is right. If you are testing high school summer camp counselors, you probably won’t need to do meth testing, but there has been a rise in opiate abuse in high school students so adding that along with alcohol and marijuana are great starting points.

No matter what type of drug testing you decide on it will make a big difference in your workplace environment knowing your employees are all safe and trustworthy.
