Collection Plus Services
Collection Plus provides drug and alcohol testing services and recommends implementation of a drug-testing policy that includes a combination of these tests:
Pre-Employment • Individual provides a specimen during the application process. (In some cases, employment is contingent upon a negative drug test result.)
Post Accident • Following an accident or incident on the job as outlined in DOT case regulations, an employee is required to give a specimen for testing. The results of the test may provide evidence as to the cause of the accident.
Random • Individuals are randomly selected for testing.
Reasonable Suspicion • If there is sufficient evidence to indicate employee illicit drug use, the employee is required to provide a specimen for testing. Evidence is usually based on observation by the employee’s supervisor or co-workers who have witnessed physical symptoms or patterns of abnormal or erratic behavior.
Follow-up • After having a positive drug test or refusing to take a drug test, an employee is tested on a random basis after coming back to work to ensure that he/she is drug-free. These tests help substantiate the employee’s drug-free status.
