    Five-Step Workplace Program

American Drug Testing’s Five-Step Drug-Free Workplace Program as designed by the U.S. Department of Labor.

(in compliance with the Drug Free Workplace Act of 1988)

STEP 1 - Drug and Alcohol Abuse Policy

It’s critical that your company have a clear, detailed, and up-to-date Drug and Alcoholyour drug free workplace policy covers all aspects of employee drug testing Abuse Policy.  American Drug Testing will construct a  policy specifically designed for the protection of your company and employees (using the most up-to-date information from the U.S. Department of Labor, S.C. State Employment Laws, S.C. State Workman's Compensation Laws, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU), Drug Free Workplace Act, American's With Disabilities Act (ADA), Labor Law Attorneys, and select Fortune 500 Companies).  This policy covers Purpose, Scope, Procedures, Violation consequences, Employer's rights, Employee's rights, and a signed/witnessed agreement statement.  If you like, we can will review the policy in detail and explain each section to your employees and supervisors — answering questions about the policy, a drug-free workplace, or drug testing.  This procedure provides your employees with the understanding they need, and gives your company improved legal protection and reduced liability to lawsuits (The policy has been reviewed by attorneys and is well-proven in court.  However, once your company adopts this policy as its own, American Drug Testing Inc. assumes no liability for its use.) 

STEP 2 - Supervisor Training

Supervisors need to recognize the signs of drug or alcohol use.  American Drug Testing's Educate your supervisors about workplace drug testingweb-based Supervisor Training Program provides the tools and medical knowledge necessary to determine the physical, behavioral, speech, and performance indicators of alcohol and drug use. Our program describes how to confront the employee and properly record the action.  Referral, evaluation and treatment procedures are also explained and we reveal the secrets of how drug users try to “beat” drug tests.  

STEP 3 - Educating Your Employees

Each employee should understand your drug free workplace program and how ittraining your employees about workplace drug testing functions.  One of the best investments you can make in your workforce is to explain the dangers of drug and alcohol abuse, especially in the workplace; e.g. workers on drugs or alcohol are 3.6 times more likely to injure themselves or other workers, and are 5 times more likely to be involved in an accident.  American Drug Testing's web-based Employee Education Training Program explains in detail how drugs and alcohol damage the body and ruin a persons life.  The program also covers the procedures for drug and alcohol testing and how to get help and treatment for drug or alcohol problems.   

STEP 4 - Providing Employee Assistance

EAP's help employees identify and understand their problems, and then get help through referrals for counseling and treatment.  Although many companies have a zero tolerance for drug abuse and thus terminate the employee, these companies still provide information on the help that is available in the community.  For each person who is positive on a drug or alcohol test while on the job, American Drug Testing will counsel and refer each employee for help. 

STEP 5 - Drug Testing

Drug testing is the only way to prove that an employee is under the influence or has drugs or alcohol in their system.  With a positive drug test result in your hand there is no denying, no argument, no discrimination, no harassment, no lawsuit. This is the reasonemployee drug testing and alcohol testing that all major corporations and now small businesses use drug testing to eliminate the drug problem in their workforce.  Drug testing is simple, accurate, and cost effective.  A drug using employee is 5 times more likely to file a workman's compensation claim due to increased accidents.  The money saved from just one claim can pay for the entire drug free workplace program.  The U.S. Dept of Labor recommends drug testing as the final part of a comprehensive drug free workplace.
