It can depend on the industry you're in Nia Cooper, Partner at Capital Law in Cardiff, explained certain industries are more likely to perform tests: "The risks to health and safety are clearer in some sectors than in others – for example, it is easy to see why a zero tolerance policy is appropriate in the construction and manufacturing sectors, arguably less so in relation to the professional services sector. "Employers are increasingly justifying random drug testing on the need to ensure that staff can effectively perform their jobs. This is especially the case in care sectors e.g. nurseries, care homes etc."
