Habitual drug use prevents the brain from thinking critically and operating at 100% efficiency. Employees abusing drugs can compromise their company’s productivity and potentially endanger the lives of their coworkers. This is especially relevant for companies requiring their workers to operate heavy machinery. This then necessitates drug testing, as it’s in both the company and employees’ best interests to know they’re in a productive and safe environment.

Even for office-based companies, drug testing can be a useful tool for hiring new employees, since it’s in the company’s best interests to hire people devoid of drug dependencies.  Pre-employment drug screens are the best way to not just filter out drug users, but also instill all current employees with a sense of fear necessary to ensure they won’t participate in any future drug use.

One of the most prevalent drugs found in pre-employment drug screens in today’s age is prescribed opiods. The opiod family encompasses dangerous drugs of abuse such as opium and heroin, both of which have the potential to lead to fatal overdoses. Prescription opiods are no different. These are not the drugs you want your employees using, thus, it is for everyone’s benefit that your company drug tests.
