Post Accident Drug & Alcohol Testing

All DOT drug testing programs and the majority of state drug-free workplace initiatives mandate post-accident drug testing, which is a crucial component of any drug testing program. Businesses frequently administer post-accident drug tests to ascertain whether a workplace accident was brought on by drug or alcohol usage, which is statistically the main contributor to workplace accidents. This protects employers from financial and legal liabilities in the event of a positive test result and lowers the cost of workers' compensation insurance for the company. Moreover, it plays a protective role. Because they are aware that a workplace accident will result in an immediate drug test, and upon a positive test result, firing, it serves as a potent deterrent to employee drug use in this job.
