Why Perform Drug Screening?

Taking preventative measures to avoid potential harm to your brand, business, and employees is a critical step for success. A drug screening program is part of that, playing a role in prevention and fostering a corporate wellness culture. Not sure it’s for you? Here are a few reasons why you should consider:


Drug screening can be a vital step when it comes to protecting employees. Pre-employment and ongoing drug screening can help you maintain workplace well-being and safety.


Drug screening programs aim to filter out drug users and deter drug use in the workplace. Maintain business momentum with streamlined procedures, whether you require lab-based testing for DOT purposes or you’re conducting virtual drug screening.

Community Protection

Protect your team and applicants with a fully contactless pre-employment drug screening from First Advantage. For delivery drivers, construction pros, office workers, or virtually any profession that interacts within your corporate community, drug screening is an essential step in mitigating workplace risk while promoting the health and safety of the community.


Workplace incidents can be costly. Drug screening not only minimizes the risks associated with potential damages to your workplace but can also provide long-term savings.
