Keeping your work environment safe and productive is a priority for all businesses—large and small.
When a LycaTel manager received a complaint about possible drug usage among employees, she was determined to establish a protocol for drug testing to deter future drug usage. Her goal was to create a safe and productive working environment for all employees.
Urine testing is a typical (and cost-effective) choice among employers, but it only tests drug use as far back as three days. She wanted something that tested drug use further back. Hair testing, while a bit pricier, traces drug use as far back as 90 days. Alia followed their gold standard protocol in drug collection and had the samples tested immediately.
And LycaTel didn’t have to wait long for results. Alia’s Alere Escreen system allowed her to view web reporting within 15 minutes, if results were negative, and within 48 hours if results were non-negative. The immediacy of the reporting allowed her to make informed and quick decisions for the benefit of her employees and company.
