Employment drug testing
Recreational drug use does not stand still. Most UK employment drug screening and pre-employment drug testing programs have, for decades. The lack of clear guidance for employers on what drugs they should test for, encourages this further, and the temptation to stick with a drug testing product, program or procedure, because change takes management and time to change, becomes the norm.
Many standard employment drug test kit combinations are now outdated
Many drug test combinations screen for drug groups which are either out of favour, not a local drug of abuse or simply not appropriate for your workforce demographic. Worse still these drug test combinations simply don't include tests for the recreational modern drugs of choice, and it's very likely your employees know they will not be detected by your drug testing program, further encouraging migration to these drug groups groups.
Which drug test kit offers the best modern drug test combination
Our advice is look at the drug test kit options to screen for what is likely to affect the safe operation of your workplace, and in particular look to include some of these modern recreational drug groups in your drug testing.
There is nothing to restrict you using a range of drug test combinations within your drug testing program on a randomised basis. This broadens the spectrum of the drug screening program without increasing the cost.
