Random Drug Testing

Health Screenings USA provides random drug testing services for DOT and NON-DOT regulated companies for small, medium and large employers. The random selection pool is a process where current employees are periodically selected on a regular basis such as monthly or quarterly for a drug and or alcohol test. Random drug testing is one of the best methods to ensure that a company’s drug free workplace program is maintained properly.


Random Drug TestingIt is important that any employer who utilizes random testing ensure that the companies drug free workplace policy addresses random drug testing and that all employees are made aware that random drug testing is part of the employers drug testing program.

Random drug testing can be a 5 panel, 10 panel or 12 panel screen and testing methods include urine, hair, oral fluid and blood.

Drug test screening groups commonly used are a 5 panel, 10 panel and 12 panel drug test,(panels specify how many drugs will be screened) however customized screening can be analyzed for drugs such as opiates, bath salts, synthetic cannabinoids and a wide range of prescription drugs.

Many States encourage employers to be a drug free workplace and several States provide a discount on workers compensation premiums, if the business owner is certified as a drug free workplace and the drug testing program complies with State law.

A drug testing specimen which has an initial positive result will be sent for additional testing through a screening process called a confirmation test, once the confirmation test has been completed a final result will be reported.

In most cases a drug test result by the laboratory will be sent to a Medical Review Officer (MRO) for review and verification and in the event that the result is positive the MRO will attempt to contact and interview the donor to determine if there is any lawful or legitimate reason why the specimen has an illegal drug or prescription drug in the donors system.

Drug testing is a valuable tool for employers who wish to maintain a drug free workplace environment and State and Federal courts have consistently upheld the rights of the employer to be a drug free workplace and take disciplinary action when an employee has a positive drug test.
