- X Discriminatory – can rely on subjective observation from supervisors not sufficiently qualified
- X Cause-specific
- X Invasive, time-consuming and expensive
- X Has well-established protocols for cheating
- X Combative – puts the worker in an adversarial relationship with management; risks loss of valuable team members
- X Not scalable

Frequently Asked Questions
How frequently does the AlertMeter detect impairment?
Fortunately, the majority of employees arrive at work, ready for work, and an employee's daily AlertMeter "in range" result can provide an affirmation for that good practice. Data from over 75 million worker-hours indicates that on average only 1.5% of all AlertMeter tests will test out of range. Accurately identifying this small percentage who may be impaired due to any cause enables supervisors to open productive conversations and apply your standard company policies.
What is the protocol when an employee's test shows them to be potentially impaired?
Because AlertMeter only identifies when an employee's test results fall outside the employee's personally derived tolerated performance margin, and does not indicate the cause for the deviation, your next step is based upon your company policies and Human Resource protocols.
Are baseline scores static or dynamic?
Are baselines separated according to industry or industry segment?
No, all scores are specific to individual users and are independent of industries or sectors, other employees in the same company, age, and/or gender.
