The drug testing process can be a frustrating hassle for human resource and safety professionals.
Between screening new hires and implementing randomized testing for current employees, the paperwork and lag time between testing and results can become a real issue. We are here to tell you there is an easier way to manage your drug screening program!
When You Need Results Fast
Nothing is more frustrating as an employer than to vet a great candidate only to find out that they either waited too long to show up at the testing location, or worse… failed the drug screen. With conventional drug testing methods, the long lag time between issuing a Chain of Custody form and receiving results often means other candidates for the position may have already found employment elsewhere, causing the hiring process to start from scratch.
With electronic drug screening, employers can find out in a matter of days that the potential hire is unsuitable for the position and move to the next best qualified applicant. This information can be accessed online and immediately so human resource professionals can make fast and accurate decisions.
Are you sick of Paperwork Hassles?
Testing can be a hassle for employers due to paperwork alone. Keeping copies of the completed tests, the chain-of-custody, and the original orders can take up drawer space and may lead to lengthy legal battles if the paperwork is misplaced. A electronic drug screening process uses a paperless system. All Chain of Custody forms and scheduling can be emailed to the candidate/ employee and results are available online, ready to be retrieved at a moment’s notice. There’s no need to print results because the online system is available for employers to access at their convenience.
Need to implement a randomized drug testing program?
For traditional drug testing, the process of implementing and maintaining randomized drug screenings can be a headache. Not only do HR professionals need to maintain proper paperwork but they also need to wait long periods between testing and results, a lag that can possibly result in workplace injury due to employees who are under the influence. Electronic drug screening allows employers to get immediate results, suspending or terminating employees that pose a threat to workplace safety. Electronic drug testing provides fast, accurate results that HR professionals can act on immediately while staying in compliance with DOT standards if you need to.
Order and Schedule Drug Screening Electronically
An electronic drug screening process is an integrated system that cuts down the time and paperwork associated with conventional drug screening. Rather than relying on paper Chain of Custody (COC) forms and the costly delivery and loss of time, electronic COC forms and online scheduling are self-contained and interpreted by automation. The results are available online so employers don’t need to maintain filing cabinets full of paperwork or worry about losing crucial items. All you have to do is type in the zip code of the applicant / employee and choose from the closest testing facility. Its as easy as that.
