Alcohol & Drug Testing Austin
When did you last review your drug and alcohol testing policy?
New drug testing regulations are released every year. Some affect you; some don’t. But you are required to know which ones do and how. In just a few minutes, ARCpoint’s experts can review your current policies against the state and federal regulations that are relevant to you. We’ll check whether you are in compliance and help make sure you stay that way. We can also work with you to create a customized policy that reflects the specific and unique needs of your workplace.
Drug and Alcohol Testing
Did you know that 9 out of 10 drug abusers and binge drinkers are employed by small and medium-size companies?
Workers know that most larger employers screen for drugs before hiring, so those with substance abuse problems tend to look for small to medium-size employers who don’t test.
No one wants to come to work in an environment that is unsafe. Safety and security are key factors to employee satisfaction, and the right drug and alcohol testing program reduces the risks for everyone.
Random Testing Program Management
Most employers have some type of drug and alcohol testing policy for pre-employment, but that is only a fraction of the solution. An ongoing, random drug and alcohol testing program is the perfect complement to your pre-employment testing.
A random testing program helps protect your employees and your business. ARCpoint Labs of Austin North can work with you to determine the most appropriate frequency and the right substances to test for in your workplace. We provide the tools you need to keep your current employees safe and to assist you in bringing the best new employees on board.
Corporate Training (Signs and Symptoms for Supervisors)
How well do you feel your supervisors uphold and maintain your policies? Quality training of the people on the front lines is vital to properly executing your drug and alcohol testing policy.
