What is Drug Testing?

Drug screening testing is when a person is tested for illicit drugs in their system. Most drug tests are done by collecting urine or saliva samples for thorough testing, but some tests are done with hair samples or a breathalyzer device (for alcohol tests only). There are many reasons why people would need to do a drug test but most center around employment opportunities. These include:

Pre-employment Drug Screening

Many employers require potential hires to complete — and pass — a pre-employment drug test as a condition for getting the job.

On-The-Spot Drug Testing

It is not uncommon for employers to do surprise on-the-spot drug tests during work hours. These are done to ensure that employees don’t have drugs in their system. Tests are usually conducted by taking a saliva sample.

Post-Accident Drug Tests

If an employee is injured on the job or involved in a workplace accident, they will need to complete a drug screening to rule out drug use as having played a role in the accident.

Why is drug screening important?

Performing drug screening tests is important for maintaining a safe workplace for everyone. There are other benefits to drug screening tests that make them important, including:

Improve Productivity

Improving employee productivity, morale, and performance.

Decrease Turnover

Decreasing absences, accidents, employee turnover, and theft.

Reduce Costs

Reducing employee health care costs.

Protect Customers

Protecting customers and the general public that interact with your business.

In addition to workplace safety, there may be federal rules and regulations that dictate employment drug screenings. Most private employers aren’t required to perform drug tests or even maintain a drug-free policy. However, federal contractors and grantees as well as safety- and security-sensitive industries must follow regulations set up by the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988.

How accurate is drug testing?

There are mandatory guidelines to maintain the accuracy of drug tests. Some of these guidelines include using drug labs that are certified by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA) and having a medical review officer evaluate each test. SAMHSA’s guidelines for ensuring accurate and valid drug screening tests include:

Chain of Custody

This ties documentation to the test sample to ensure that they stay together for accurate testing.

Initial Screening

If the first test comes back positive for drug detection, a second test must be done.

Confirmation Test

The confirmation test is done when the initial screening is positive. The test is done by gas chromatography/mass spectrometry testing, which is more accurate than initial testing.

Split Sample

A split sample takes the initial sample and splits it into two. The first half of the sample is used for the initial screening and the second half is used for the confirmation test if needed.

Types of Drug Screening Tests

Drug screening tests are broken up into two categories: DOT and Non-DOT. DOT stands for the Department of Transportation, and they require — and regulate — drug tests for any employee in transportation jobs. These jobs include aviation employees, CDL drivers, railroad workers, and more. The DOT uses the standard five-panel test for all of their drug screenings, making all other panel screenings non-DOT tests.

In addition to DOT and non-DOT tests, there is a number in front of every panel test. This number indicates how many drugs they are checking for, meaning a five-panel would be five drugs, a seven-panel would be seven drugs, and so on. The five-panel test is typically the industry standard, especially for government-type jobs, but employers can choose to use any drug screen test that fits their needs.

Five Panel

A five-panel test checks for the following drugs: Amphetamine/Methamphetamine, Cocaine, Codine/Morphine, Marijuana Metabolite, and Phencyclidine.

Seven Panel – Non-DOT

A seven-panel test checks for the following drugs: Amphetamines, Cocaine, Cannabinoids, Opiates, Phencyclidine (PCP), Barbiturates, and Benzodiazepines.

Nine Panel – Non-DOT

10 Panel – Non-DOT

A 10-panel test checks for the following drugs: Amphetamines, Cocaine, Opiates, Phencyclidine (PCP), Barbiturates, Benzodiazepines, Propoxyphene, Methadone, and Methaqualone.

DOT: Five Panel + Ecstasy

A five-panel plus ecstasy test checks for the following drugs: Amphetamines, Cocaine, Cannabinoids, Opiates, Phencyclidine, and Ecstacy.
