Gear testing in the workplace
I work for a company that has random testing, which means I could get popped at any time.
Catch is, there are 11 catagories of substances they test for. Call me stupid, but I'm not sure which catagorie "gear" falls into, if any of these :
Any help to ease my mind, or keep me from losing my job would be helpful.

Would be none of the above, gear has to be specificatlly tested.

From what a friend of mine who is a lab tech the testing of steriods is not very likely as the test has to be performed for each substance and it costs the company upwards of $16,000.00. So you should be safe.

I believe that ephedrine will show up as an amphetamine in a test. Not a 100% sure does anyone know for sure?

You have to be taking absurd amounts of ephedrine to get a trace going on one of those tests - and no they wont test for it. That goes for anyone wondering about your work's drug policy. You can almost assume that in 9 out of ten cases steroids WONT be tested for unless you are in a related field.

and in most cases even if you were to test positive, they usually are required to retest at a later date before they can confirm it/take action, or at least thats how it is where I work. But ive never juiced so i dont worry

Actually, you can contest it if you come up positive for anything, but they just take a split sample from the urine you already provided.
Thanks guys. In other words, I should be damn near 100% safe. Since the company I work for is under a huge budget crunch, it would be highly doubtful that they would ever spend the extra dough just to test for gear.
