Random Drug Testing
Random Drug Testing is the single most effective deterrent to drug use in the workplace. Because it is conducted randomly without advance notice it’s difficult for a drug user to prepare by substituting clean urine. We take care of all the random selections for you to protect your liability.

Why use drugs on Saturday if you know there is a chance you will get a tap on the shoulder on Monday?
Drug users know how to cheat a scheduled drug test.
Cheat? You bet. Common ways drug users try to beat a drug test include diluting or substituting.
Diluting simply means they drink lots of water — so much that their urine becomes so watered down that a lab can’t detect anything, including drugs. The lab will report a dilute specimen as such, but then the employer is stuck (usually) with ordering (and paying for) a retest. This post explains it pretty well.
Substituting is just what it sounds like. A donor smuggles in clean or synthetic urine to substitute for her own. Many get caught. Some don’t. The advantage of random testing is they don’t have the opportunity to prepare.
