Employee Drug Testing Mini Hero

Employment Drug Testing

Drug testing services protect your employees. Here, a chef wields a knife.


Concentra offers employers our very popular 5-panel and 10-panel drug screens within the parameters of applicable state and federal laws for non-regulated employment drug testing to serve all your needs: pre-employment drug testing, random drug testing, post-accident drug testing, and reasonable suspicion drug testing.  We use the latest FDA-approved automated and instrumented technology to ensure objective test results are delivered to you quickly and securely.

    The Importance of Drug Testing Your Employees

    Drug testing is an important part of the hiring process and routine maintenance of owning a company for many reasons. It’s proven to be the best preventive measure in ensuring the safety of your workplace. Employee drug use increases the risk of an accident, therefore doing everything in your power to make sure it is not taking place in your company is crucial.

    Your industry may also legally be required to enforce drug testing. Congress passed a law in 1988 requiring any company employed in some way by the federal government to maintain a drug-free workplace. If you own a business regulated by the Department of Labor or Department of Transportation, it is required by law that you drug test your employees as well as schedule periodic physicals and tests.

    Four typical needs for employment drug testing are pre-placement drug testing, drug testing when there is a reasonable suspicion or cause, regular random drug testing, and post-accident drug testing. Concentra drug testing can use any of four sample types: urine, blood, saliva, and hair follicle.

    Not every service offered is appropriate for use by all employers in every state. Always consult your legal or human resources advisors to determine which services are appropriate for your specific circumstances.

        Non-negative and regulated drug tests are securely sent to a federally certified (SAMHSA) laboratory. When needed, follow-up by a Medical Review Officer (MRO) and confirmation testing are typically completed within three to five business days. “No-THC” panel options are available for non-regulated drug screens in most states for employers who choose not to test for marijuana.
