Drug usage in the workplace is evolving.  Data from Employment Background Investigation’s (EBI) partner, Quest Diagnostics, states that "results from more than 5.5 million urine drug tests reveal an 18 percent jump in opiate positives in the general U.S. workforce in a single year (2008 to 2009), and a more than 40 percent climb from 2005 to 2009." 

Is your company's current employment drug testing program keeping up with these trends and providing the maximum protection to your organization?

Detection windows are short for some drugs, and relying only on pre employment drug testing may not provide a clear and accurate picture of potential employee substance usage.  EBI's ongoing random drug testing programs are designed to help deter consistent and inappropriate drug use and promote a safer workplace.
