Contentious claims without citations[edit]

A number of contentious claims are made on this page without citations to substantiate them. I think they may as well just be deleted entirely. The research literature generally does not describe adequate evidence of efficacy, despite contrary claims from service providers. Given that service providers generally benefit, by providing the service in exchange for a fee/fees, there is clear conflict of interest when said providers make claims regarding efficacy. Examining the medical literature reveals that evidence supporting the efficacy of work place drug testing is mixed at best, and virtually absent at best.

This paragraph should be deleted, and there are others:

"All organisations—large and small—can benefit from an agreed policy on alcohol and drug misuse that applies to all workers. Such a policy should form part of an organisations overall health and safety management system. PCBUs are encouraged to establish a policy and procedure, in consultation with workers, to constructively manage alcohol and other drug related hazards in their workplace. A comprehensive workplace alcohol and other drug policy should apply to everyone in the workplace and include prevention, education, counselling and rehabilitation arrangements. In addition, the roles and responsibilities of managers and supervisors should be clearly outlined.[citation needed]

All Australian workplace drug testing must comply with Australian standard AS/NZS4308:2008.[citation needed]" — Preceding unsigned comment added by 122.61.184.91 (talk) 11:38, 23 December 2017‎ (UTC)

EU directive and legality in Europe to be added[edit]

I am working on a new paragraph about the legal situation in European countries. It's quite different, companies can receive hefty fines if they do something that would violate labour or privacy laws. Of course, drug testing in Europe is entirely legal for certain at risk professions. Emphasis is placed on a medical exam when necessary, and results of drug tests are not directly communicated to the employer but treated as part of the medical exam to determine whether an applicant is fit for work. It would make for a great discussion topic as this is approached so differently in the Old World. I hope to complete my research this week, and I welcome suggestions and improvements from the interested readership. Osterluzei (talk) 01:27, 25 January 2018 (UTC)

Behavioral Testing[edit]

I think it might be useful to include a category for behavioral testing. Walk-and-turn, eye movement assessments, balance tests, etc. are used for alcohol, for example. Thoughts? Sightvision (talk) 12:50, 7 August 2018 (UTC)
