State agencies may engage in substance abuse testing in accordance with State Personnel Board Rule 21, Drug and Alcohol Free Workplace, to promote a safe workplace. If an agency deterines that additional positions within the organization should be subject to pre-employment and random drug testing, they may initiate the review process by completing the Position Analysis Form, below. HRA staff will review the position duties against the criteria established for pre-employment and random drug testing and collaborate with the agency to make appropriate additions.
For testing programs that are not federally-regulated, agencies may choose to conduct on-site specimen collections if they have trained staff and an adequate facility. Below are procedures that support a successful on-site collection program.
