A post-accident drug test is the testing of an employee who is involved in an on-the-job accident (vehicle or otherwise) which may have involved human error, and which causes an injury, death or property damage.
In the event of an accident on the job, a company may have a mandatory drug screen policy for the employee(s) involved. An accident does not require any injuries or damages to have been suffered in order for the employer to request employee drug testing. Post-accident drug testing is performed within a short period of the incident occurring.
The Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) allows employers to perform post accident drug testing on all workers who have contributed to the workplace incident, as well as those who reported the injuries. Doing this helps the employer assess the cause of the workplace incident that “harmed or could have harmed [the] employees.”
The results of the testing can have serious implications to the employee’s future employment. An employee can face termination or long-term suspension depending upon company policy.
A post-accident drug testing service is primarily designed to evaluate and determine if drug use can be factored in the incident, and determine if indeed, there were unsafe work practices involved because of it. On a positive note, this can be an opportunity for the individual to obtain necessary help and intervention if required.
