Post Accident Drug Test
Is estimated that 31.9 percent of fatal accidents are result of illicit drug use; post-accident drug testing can help determine whether drugs and/or alcohol were a factor in the accident.

It is important for private employers to establish objective criteria that will trigger a post-accident test. Some examples of criteria include fatalities, injuries that required medical assistance, police citations, or damages to a vehicle or property above a specified monetary amount.
In 2013, the National Survey on Drug Use and Health (NSDUH) reported that 24.6 million, or 9.4 percent of the American population aged 12 or older, were current users of illicit drugs
