However, more often than not; people can feel anxious when encountering a drug and alcohol test and have concerns like those surrounding the privacy and handling of their test results or fear of cross reacting medications.
In fact, those not taking illicit drugs are likely to be taking some sort of medication for which only a health professional can adequately deal with the myriad of possible cross reactivity issues and then properly explain this to the person being tested (and from a health-care medical perspective).
Only a small fraction of your workforce are likely to test positive for drugs or alcohol, but to make sure that drugs and alcohol are not a problem in your workplace, testing needs to occur regularly and cover most of your workforce.
As an employer, we understand that you can be anxious to ensure that your workforce is treated with respect and that staff who test negative have a good experience during testing and can get on with their work without disruption.
We also understand that most people that we test will not test positive and their experience with the testing process must also be performed respectfully and with a caring approach.
