Employers today have a lot to consider when they are hiring an employee for their company or corporation. First, they will determine whether the candidate is qualified to fit the position, and how well they will be able to adjust to their new working environment. Once this decision has been made, there is a something else that needs to be determined; will this well qualified person be able to pass a drug test?
So what testing method should your company use? There are several methods on the market today, but this write-up will discuss the key differences of the two most popular forms of instant testing: Urine and Oral.
A chain of custody is a document that keeps track of the collection procedure, and has each person who has come in contact with the specimen to sign his or her name.
The biggest debate between choosing a type of drug screening is based on the invasiveness of the procedure. A lot of company’s struggle on choosing a test that proves to be more accurate but more invasive on their employees (urine test) or a test that proves to be less accurate but less invasive on their employees (oral test). The bottom line is if you are in fact requiring a drug test for employees, accuracy is definitely the main overall goal. Urine testing allows this accuracy at a lower cost and provides a method where although a little more invasive, is highly effective. It is important to consider which test would be best for and most tailored towards your workplace.
