Who Requires a Drug Screening?

Any industry can require their employees to undergo a drug screening. These screenings occur more frequently in safety-sensitive workplace environments, including transportation, manufacturing, shipping, and construction industries. It is important for employers in these industries to make sure that none of their employees are under the influence and can complete job tasks without injury themselves or others.

When Does Drug Testing Usually Take Place?

The regulations set forth by the state of Connecticut and how quickly and efficiently an employer needs a drug screening, will impact the starting date of the screening. Some typical situations can include:
  • Pre-employment 
  • After a workers’ compensation claim
  • After an accident
  • Reasonable suspicion 

What Do I Need to Bring to a Drug Test?

A center administering the drug screening may require an individual to bring the following items with them:
  • A valid ID picture which can include a passport, driver’s license or military ID 
  • Any authorization forms or paperwork from your employer
