MUST Drug Testing

Each employer working on a site requiring MUST drug testing must be registered in the program at Each employer enrolls and processes the initial drug screening if the employee has not already been enrolled into the program. Employers are also asked to provide training to supervisors to enable them to identify behaviors exhibited by persons who are under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Employers submit a monthly listing of employees eligible for random screening.

Employees who have been drug tested are issued an Identification Card to be kept in their possession. All results of drug tests are considered medical records and held confidential.

All potential employees of all contractors at all tiers who work at a MUST Project must submit to an Initial Drug Screening. The initial screen does not include an alcohol test. Twenty-five percent of the workforce is then tested at random on an annual basis.
