The largest random drug testing company in Canada is coming to the defence of oil sands companies.
DriverCheck says random tests in the trucking industry have caused an 80 percent drop in positive drug tests for truck drivers since 1996.
It says with some oil sands companies showing up to 15 percent positive tests just in pre-employment screening, there’s even more potential to improve the situation in that industry.
Unions and civil liberties groups have called random testing inaccurate, invasive, and ineffective.
