Send all managers on man management courses. If I was manager make my staff feel like they are appreciated and actually thank them for the work they do and effort they put in. Me either CEO or regional director look in to the company having it's own stores, scrapyard and recovery trucks in one place.

You are tested for everthing illegal which is their duty but they seem to be testing for loads more like tranquilizers . Here's the list guys and the abbreviated terms used on the test itself.
So COC =COCAINE, BZD=BENZODIAZEPINES (diazepam, temazepam n nitrazepam)
THC= CANNABIS/GRASS OPI= OPIATES
MTD= METHADONE AMP= AMPHETAMINE
BUP= BUPRENORPHINE
Also take note that there are 2 lines on each DRUG . THE C IS THE CONTROL LINE.
WHEN IT TURNS PURPLE IT MEANS THAT THE STRIP FOR THAT DRUG IS WORKING. ( These lines will vary in darkness from deep purple to very faded hard to see purple)
The line below the C line is the T test line, and this is the line that indicates a negative when visable. If no line appears under the C control line then you have failed or tested positive for the drug in that strip. ..
NOTE- IRRIGAURDLESS OF HOW FAINT OR DARK A LINE IS IN THE TEST LINE, IF A PURPLE LINE NO MATTER HOW FAINT APPEARS BELOW THE CINTROL LINE , YOU HAVE PASSED OR TESTED NEGATIVE.
Take note as ive seen idiot doctors or qualified testers try and say that a faint line indicates that you have passed by the skin of ypur teeth and some try to say its a fail. The depth of colour OR lack of deep colour is NOT AN INDICATION OF THE AMOUNT OR LACK OF A SUBSTANCE IN YOUR SYSTEM .
ANY VISABLE LINE IS A PASS NO MATTER HOW FAINT, PLUS WAIT TILL THE 5 MINS IS UP.
IF THE TESTER WANTS TO ARGUE, TAKE A PHOTO OF THE TEST AND ASK HIM OR HER TO GO AND OPEN A NEW TEST TO GET THE INSTRUCTIONAL LEAFLET WHERE IT STATES ALL OF THE ABOVE GUYS.
DON'T EVER BE BULLIED BY IDIOTS !
