Random Drug Testing Programs
A Monitoring the Future (MTF) survey reports that the rate of drug use by students in 8th through 12th grade has dropped in recent years. While many factors contribute to this success, one is the fact that many schools have chosen to require random drug testing programs to keep teens on their toes and discourage these types of curiosities.
A Look at the Benefits in Schools
The staff here at Test Smartly Labs respects those who believe random drug testing in schools is an invasion of privacy. For those who have confidence their teens aren’t engaging in drug or alcohol use, this can be understandable. However, unsuspecting parents are often the most surprised when results do prove positive. The truth is that teens are young and inexperienced, and all it takes is one time to begin a lifetime of drug use. Just some of the potential benefits of random drug testing programs include:
- Reduces influence and peer pressure
- Helps enforce zero-tolerance drug policies
- Helps uncover drug offenders
Workplace, DOT and Court-Ordered Random Testing
Certain employers are required by the DOT to conduct random drug testing on a consistent basis. These include those in the following industries:
- Motor carrier
