Controls Such as Drug Testing

Some workplaces have adopted alcohol and drug testing in their strategy to prevent and respond to drug use.

Drug testing is a way to assess recent exposure to drug use. A variety of types of analysis exist including analysis of:

  • Breath
  • Urine
  • Blood
  • Saliva
  • Hair

Drug testing is contentious. But some people argue that if it reduces the risk of drug use and related harm then it is justified.
