About Soteria Screening Laboratories
At Soteria Screening Laboratories it is our mission to provide personalized, effective, and efficient drug & alcohol testing. This includes compliance programs nationwide for companies and for individuals. Soteria Screening works with three laboratories, instead of one. This is to help expand the network of facilities able to provide our variety of services.
Drug & alcohol abuse is a serious issue. Companies, both big and small, are faced with this challenge daily. Ever changing federal and state drug regulations makes it difficult for companies to know exactly who they may be hiring. Or, whether they are faced with a future liability. A drug & alcohol testing program through Soteria Screening will help the workplace minimize faulty hires. Our program reduces liabilities both for the company and its employees.
Why Drug Test?
Drug and alcohol abuse is a serious issue. It’s one that employers continue to face daily. Businesses lose billions of dollars a year. This is due to lost productivity, accidents, and other related problems. It can be especially detrimental to small businesses. One serious accident can be devastating. Soteria drug testing and compliance programs decrease liabilities caused by employees who abuse substances. Federal rules and regulations require many companies to submit their employees to drug and alcohol testing. Particularly those with safety-sensitive jobs.
Aside from required federally regulated drug tests, there are many other practical reasons for employers to test their employees.
Drug and alcohol testing programs in the workplace help minimize a company’s chances of hiring an employee who may be a substance abuser. It also helps identify current employees who may be using drugs. This allows the company to refer them to rehabilitation or assistance programs. Drug testing is humane, constructive, and can even be life-saving. It helps to force individuals to confront their dependency problems. Testing is also a strong motivator for recovering substance abusers to stay sober. It deters other individuals from “recreational” substance abuse. Many states will give up to a 10% discount on Workers Compensation insurance premiums to companies with a Drug-Free Workplace (DFW) policy in place.
Soteria Screening Laboratories has found that implementing a drug and alcohol testing program is key. It reduces employee tardiness, absenteeism, and employee turnover. An effective drug screening program can reduce accidents, thus effectively lowering workers’ compensation costs.
