Drug Testing Essentials from IHSN
So, you want to know more about drug testing?  You've come to the right place!  IHSN's Drug Testing Essentials section is full of information to answer your questions and concerns about drug testing.  So, let's start with the basics:

What is Drug Testing?
Drug testing is one action an employer can take to see if employees or job applicants have used drugs.  Drug tests can identify illegal drugs in a person's body.  Employers drug test their employees to protect their workers and their workplaces from the negative effects of  drug use.

Some employers believe that a drug-free workplace program and drug testing are one and the same; however, drug testing is only one element of a program.  This is why IHSN focuses on not just drug testing, but also helping you to implement your entire drug-free workplace program.  We have solutions for testing, training and education, policy development and regulatory issues  to help you manage your drug-free workplace program with ease.
