Do energy companies have to drug and alcohol screen their employees?
If your energy company is one of the 99% of oil and gas companies that has offshore workers, then you’ll need to drug screen your employees. This is because employees working on offshore rigs fall under international maritime law which requires drug and alcohol screening. The screening must be a mix of announced and unannounced tests .
If your company has no offshore workers, then drug and alcohol screening isn’t required by law but is still recommended due to the potential safety risks of employees under the influence of illicit substances.
