Some people resort to drug use and getting high as a way out from the stressors of their daily life. Of course, their personal lives are what are primarily affected but as an employer, their dangerous habit will definitely impact your bottom line! Whether that person is in backroom operations or in your frontline, it is an unnecessary risk to your own customers and, ultimately, to your business to employ people who are abusing drugs. So why expose your company to the danger of having workers engaging in drug abuse? Whether your company is big or small, C-Net Technologies will keep your back covered with its accurate drug screening services.
With changes in state laws and regulations that are being implemented all the time, monitoring and coping with them can be difficult especially if you’re operating in multiple locations. As with background screening, you must partner with a company that can keep you compliant with all Federal and State laws. C-Net Technologies possesses the right experience and expertise to successfully plan and implement your company’s drug testing program based on your internal screening policy, industry standards, and applicable laws.
When it comes to conducting the drug screening, C-Net Technologies follows strict observance of regulations. In fact, federal guidelines mandate that only qualified persons who have undergone proper training are allowed to conduct drug testing in SAMSHA-certified labs. In addition, only a Medical Review Officer (MRO) can analyze test results. There are many cases wherein employees who were found positive for substance abuse got their jobs back since the collector wasn’t qualified. If the proper guidelines are not adhered to, it would cost companies a lot of money. We at C-Net Technologies assure you that we have thoroughly audited all collection facilities for compliance with federal guidelines.
Coordinating with hundreds or even thousands of employees about their scheduled trip to collection facilities can get overwhelming. When you leave the hard to us, you can concentrate on your core competencies instead. Our associates will directly relay to your candidates and employees all the correct information they need before they visit the collection facility. You’ll be able to manage your entire drug testing program through one vendor and bring convenience to your applicants and workers.
Based on your industry, size, and location, we will help you customize a drug screening program that is best suited for your organization’s needs. We are dedicated to providing our clients with an intelligent and complete drug testing program that will save you precious time and money. Our full range of services that includes alcohol testing, drug testing, and physical examinations are designed to ensure that all of your workplace standards for fitness, health, and safety are met while at the same time helping you remain compliant with applicable laws.
What’s more is that we have technologically-enabled operations wherein the solutions we offer eliminate cumbersome paperwork. We offer web-based electronic forms and also allow clients to access real-time results online.
