Employee Drug Testing


A safe workplace is drug-free. Begin drug testing ASAP to protect your company and employees.

HireSafe offers a single solution for all of your employee drug testing and background screening needs. We can provide you with comprehensive onsite, instant lab-based or combination of compliant screening programs that best meet your needs.

We offer a wide variety of substance abuse screening services (i.e. Saliva, Hair, Urinalysis), more than 12,000 collection site locations nationwide, and extensive expertise in regulated and non-regulated environments. We can help you design and implement a successful drug screening program to accommodate your needs to find the best new employees.

Undoubtedly, companies that do not conduct pre-employment drug screening hire more drug users than those that do. While it is a smart business decision to cut expenses, it is also a smart business practice to make your organization's workplace as safe as possible. Substance abuse testing can assist you with both.

Drug testing is also available in many foreign countries.

Urine Testing

Urinary drug testing can be conducted on a single urine sample for one to 10 drugs at a time, delivering fast results that are readable for up to 60 minutes. Confirmation drug testing can be performed at any of our partner's SAMHSA-certified laboratories.

Oral Fluid (saliva)Testing 

Oral saliva drug testing provides easy-to-read results within 15 minutes, detecting drugs not available in traditional urine drug screens. The sample is collected under direct supervision, minimizing the chance for specimen adulteration. GC/MS confirmation can be performed at our partner's SAMHSA-certified laboratory.

Breath Alcohol Testing

On-site breath alcohol testing that is fast and easy. This highly convenient, non-invasive screening device - available in D.O.T. approved and non-D.O.T. versions - accurately screens for alcohol use by measuring alcohol levels from just one deep breath. Easy-to-read indicator crystals change color upon alcohol detection, providing results within two minutes.

Specimen Adulteration Testing

Developed to detect the use of foreign substances (ingested or added to a specimen) that prevent the detection of drug use, our instant
adulteration product is an essential part of a comprehensive drug testing program

Medical Review Officer (MRO) 

The Medical Review Officer (MRO) process was first developed by the U.S. Department of Transportation to provide a level of safety and confidentiality between the employer who required a urine drug screen test and the employee who was required to submit to the test. Although established originally for the federally regulated testing programs, the MRO process has been widely embraced by the private sector and is now considered essential to all quality drug testing programs.

In the MRO process, an MRO receives drug test results from the laboratory, reviews the results and evaluates the validity of the result. If the result is positive, the MRO determines whether there is a legitimate medical reason for the test to be positive. An example is the appropriate use of prescription medication that can legitimately result in a positive drug test. Based on the review, the results are verified and reported as "Positive", "Negative", "Adulterated", "Substituted", or "Canceled/Invalid/No-Test". The employer then takes action according to internal company policy, federal requirements or both.

Medical Review Officer services are provided by a licensed physician specializing in addiction medicine. Services include the interpretation and evaluation of test results from confirmed positive, adulterated and substituted specimens in addition to the employee's medical history or other relevant biomedical information necessary to determine if there is a legitimate explanation for a confirmed positive test.

Hair Follicle Testing 

Hair testing for drugs of abuse is the only drug-testing method available that provides up to a 90-day drug use history. This makes hair testing an ideal solution for pre-employment and random testing protocols.


Using FDA-cleared testing reagents, this lab-based test offers the advantages of easy specimen collection and highly accurate results that meet the same reference standards as urine testing. In addition, there are no known methods for sample adulteration (hair washing will not dilute the sample). Because specimen collection can be directly observed, the risk of adulteration is even further reduced.

Fast turnaround of results is also available: Negative results are reported within 24 hours of receipt at the laboratory, and positive results are confirmed using gas chromatography/mass spectrometry (GC/MS) or gas chromatography/mass spectrometry/mass spectrometry (GC/MS/MS) within 48 to 72 hours. Hair testing is also forensically defensible.

When compared with urine specimen testing, hair testing provides up to 2.5 times the number of positives and a longer detection window.
