Oral Drug Screening Services
Drug Abuse in the Workplace
Employees who regularly use drugs often discover their ability to work is impaired by the effects of the drug or withdrawals. This reduced productivity is matched by an increased likelihood of skipping work due to hangovers, withdrawals, or cravings. Most worryingly, however, drug users are far more prone to accidents. If your workplace requires the use of vehicles, heavy machinery, or valuable equipment, you want to be confident your employees aren’t under the influence of substances that affect physical and mental acuity.
Oral fluid drug testing is an invaluable resource for preventing these kinds of workplace issues. Employers can screen potential hires before making a decision, check in on employees as they return to work, and respond to suspicions of drug use. Through testing, you can ensure a safer and more productive workplace for everyone.
At TOPLAB®, we provide oral fluid toxicology tests so you can keep your workplace safely drug-free. Our process is simple, non-invasive, and provides very fast results. Here’s how it works:
- TOPLAB® provides an oral fluid drug screening kit to your workplace. Each kit includes a sterile collection stick, a container, and a label for recording testing information.
- Under your supervision, the employee swabs the inside of their cheek with the absorbent end of the collection stick.
- You return the stick to its container, record basic details about the test, and send it by mail to the TOPLAB® laboratory.
- Our experienced technicians analyze the fluid with a multi-panel test. Our lab is efficient and advanced, meaning you’ll receive your results quickly through mail or with our convenient online portal.
For best results, instruct employees not to eat or drink for 10 minutes before the test. Food or beverage particles can remain in the saliva and interfere with the test’s accuracy.
Oral drug screens have a major advantage over urine because they’re harder to falsify. A urine test requires a trip to the bathroom. A donor can take advantage of the privacy to switch their urine sample for a clean one. An oral screening, however, is performed in full view of the person administering the test. Subjects will have a hard time tampering with the results without notice.
There’s also the benefit of immediacy. Drugs take time to metabolize, and they may not reach the urine for a few hours. Oral fluid, however, will show a drug presence almost immediately after use and up to 48 hours afterward. This makes oral fluid toxicology less limited by time and ideal for a range of testing situations, including pre-employment, reasonable suspicion, return to duty, and more.
