Not only do random drug tests only sample a small group of employees, but employees with nothing to hide resent the invasion of their privacy. Most companies admit that the small number of people who are tested at any given time do not make workplaces safer.
Cognitive tests have been on the market since the 90s, but early pioneers didn't have technology to create practical easy ways to use at work. Touchscreen technology improved practicality to use quickly and conveniently. The test takes only 60-90 seconds to complete.
AlertMeter™ is promoting its use to identify anyone who is struggling with alertness for reasons that go beyond illicit drug use.
Predictive Safety president, former CEO of Chevron Mining, says impairment is about a lot more than just substance abuse. "People can be dangerously distracted by upsetting news, extremely fatigued from poor sleep, or not clear-headed because they're coming down with the flu. We want to help companies keep their employees safe, whatever the reason."
The Company is doing studies with AlertMeter™ to clinically prove its ability to detect real-time marijuana impairment, and plans to begin pilots soon in the workplace. The test has already been in use over the past 4 years to detect extreme fatigue in 24-hour shiftwork environments.
