As long as you are going to use employee drug testing, you might as well do it properly. You must have a set schedule by which you screen your employees, you must do the paperwork for them correctly, you must have high quality drug test kits and alcohol tests, and you must keep everything organized so that you can refer to specific employee records at will.
Doing it properly is the most important part of this. Without appropriate execution of your employee drug testing plan, you may have a lot of data, but no real information at hand. This is when great leaders understand the weaknesses of the system and fix them, making the whole productivity of the screening tests more effective and more useful to the leader in your company.
Now, first, let’s talk about some popular screening tests distributed by CMM Technology. All of our products are popular but the ones which really shine are Lifeloc FC10, Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6, and the Alere DDS2 saliva drug test. The Medix cup has an adulterant test built right in, which is why it is one of the more popular items. There are so many ways in which you can implement your screening program, and you should not feel limited by the commonplace or ordinary screening programs out there. Always tailor fit your employee drug testing program to the needs of your company, not the other way around.
Also, a part of doing it properly involves commitment to the process. You must no start out strong, but then only occasionally test your employees for potential drug and alcohol abuse. You must set up a consistent test plan and stick with it. By doing it this way, you far more likely to reduce costs spent on unreliable or unproductive workers, as well as increasing the likelihood that you will actually find the employees who are doing this, if there are any for whom this is true.
Lastly, the final part of doing it properly is to never make any assumptions, and that includes with your drug test kits. Be sure and try out products from CMM Technology and determine if they are right for your business. We would be honored to have your company as a client: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
