The United States represents 5% of the global population and consumes 60% of illicit drugs produced worldwide, according to Occupational Health and Safety magazine. Considering the rate of drug use in the US, drug testing holds an important place in society, especially because drug use can affect anyone, anywhere, including in the workplace.
What is the best drug test program for my company?

Developing a drug-free workplace program should take into consideration factors such as the size of your business, the type of work your employees do, the frequency with which you want to drug test, and the state laws where you conduct business. Make sure you communicate these details as part of your company policy prior to rolling out a drug test program.
