In this edition of MRO Talks, Dr. Todd Simo, HireRight’s Chief Medical Officer discusses the benefits of using hair as a specimen for pre-employment drug testing programs. Compared to urine testing, hair is resistant to subversion tactics (adulteration or substitution). Rather than the hours or days covered by a body fluid test, hair covers a period of months, which helps ensure that a drug user cannot evade the test by simply abstaining for a few days. Review the podcast below to learn more about the benefits of hair testing.
