At SureHire we perform a full spectrum of drug and alcohol testing in Canada and the United States. Occupational, private, and social services are some of the sectors that require drug and alcohol screening. Depending on the type of drug test required, express and lab-based methods are available.
SureHire offers both express/POCT and lab-based drug testing. The decision to test using express/POCT or lab-based testing can sometimes be challenging. We provide a breakdown of the advantages and disadvantages of each method.
A Medical Review Officer (MRO) is a licenced physician who is responsible for receiving and reviewing laboratory results and evaluating medical explanations for certain drug test results. MRO’s are independent and impartial and advocate for the accuracy and integrity of the drug testing process.
The revised version of the Canadian Model now specifically recommends supervisors complete awareness training. To help supervisors recognize substance abuse in the workplace before they incur costs to the company, SureHire offers an online course on how to recognize employee workplace drug and alcohol abuse.
Many employers focus on drug and alcohol testing programs but may overlook education for their workers. The majority of workers are not aware of how drugs and alcohol negatively affect safety, productivity and culture on the job site. SureHire offers an online course that provides substance abuse awareness to employees.
SureHire has the expertise to guide employers through the process of creating a drug and alcohol policy by providing a comprehensive template. Alternately, SureHire can refer employers to our preferred partner to assist with creating custom policies or auditing existing policies to determine if adjustments are required to better protect the worker and the employer.
