Frequently Asked Questions
When are drug and alcohol tests required?
Drug and alcohol tests are required most often for: pre-employment, re-employment after 90-days absence, post-incident, random, reasonable suspicion and project-wide as part of a customer or contract requirement.
Who schedules drug & alcohol tests?
Typically all drug and alcohol tests required for any reason as listed in the policy are scheduled through Odin’s Human Resources Division during normal business hours. However, any Health & Safety Division staff member can also assist after-hours, during post-incident situations and other special circumstances.
What if an employee refuses to take a drug or alcohol test?
Refusal to comply with the company’s drug and alcohol testing requirements is grounds for immediate termination of employment. The employee will be referred to the Human Resources Division.
Marijuana is now legal in many states; will I still be tested for it?
Yes, you will still be tested. Marijuana and all THC products are still considered illegal substances by the Federal government and Odin’s policy prohibits its use. Like alcohol, which is legal, even small intakes of marijuana can have a dangerous effect on employee safety.
What are the rules on prescription medications?
Workers may be taking medication prescribed by their physician, which in many cases will not impair job safety. However, any medication (prescribed or over-the-counter) which may cause drowsiness, dizziness, or otherwise impair your ability to perform your job in a safe manner must be reported immediately to your supervisor.
What kind of drug test do we use?
Odin uses the OralTox® rapid-results 10-panel drug test that produces a highly dependable result usually within 5-10 minutes, or depending on the locality and availability of testing equipment the employee may be sent to a designated clinic or laboratory facility for collection of a urine sample for the same 10-panel test.
