I have worked for several coal companies in Boone and Kanawha county. All of them only do a urine screening.

For pre-employment the most you'll get is a urine test. Hair tests are really expensive.

I am not sure but I think that Patroit Coal does hair sampling for their pre-employment exam. I know they do a GOOD physical before hiring.

If you are really doing a paper on drugs in the mining industry I would suggest you call the HR Dept. at a few of the local mines and talk to one of their reresenatives.

If they did hair tests, more than half would fail. (At least that's what I've witnessed after working at four different mines)

A guy I worked with had a family member that worked at the plant. Said they had daily exercises to do of a morning and things like that.
Maybe that's why they didn't need any bailouts from the government.

They have a japanese idea of a business.
You are part of a group. They do work out in the am or at the beginning of a shift.
The bad thing is they have trouble with individual thoughts. But who am I to complain . a jobs a job.

Almost any job you will ever find has trouble with individual thoughts.
