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.

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.
