Why do Emergency Drug and Alcohol Testing?

In 2006 a study found that illicit drug use in the workforce involved approximately 14.1 percent of employed adults and that 3.1 per cent of adults used illicit drugs in the workplace specifically, with some workplaces reporting up to 28 per cent of employees involved in illicit drug use (Frone, 2006). Test results can be used by management to determine if drugs and/or alcohol were a contributing factor to the cause of preventable incidents if performed within an acceptable time range of the incident. Research estimates that the cost of harm done by alcohol to others is equivalent to the cost of harm done by alcohol to the individual consuming it, highlighting the need for workplace policies to protect both the consumer and innocent bystanders (Laslett et al., 2010).

Ideal Testing Range:

To ensure accurate test results, the recommended time frames to complete post incident drug and alcohol testing are as follows:

  • Drug testing should be completed within 32 hours of the incident
  • Alcohol testing should be completed within 8 hours of the incident
