Top 5 Mistakes Employers make with Drug & Alcohol Testing in the workplace

Navigating safe workplaces

“For a workplace drug & alcohol testing program to be successful it must be clear, detailed, fair, enforceable, consistent in its application and focus on education and support.”

Many employers develop a drug and alcohol testing program with the right intentions – they want to keep people:

  • safe at work,
  • prevent dangerous and costly workplace accidents
  • maintain a good brand reputation in their market.

However, despite their good intentions, most will fail dismally!


We asked our team of workplace drug testing experts what they see as the top 5 common mistakes in drug & alcohol policies and procedures.

Here’s what they said:

  • The half-baked approach
  • Unclear procedures
  • The “catch & sack” approach
  • Inconsistency in the application of the procedure
  • Lack of training
