Drugs and Alcohol - For Cause testing

We operate a "For Cause" testing policy for drugs & alcohol; however, we are getting very low numbers of tests. I'd be interested to know what numbers of "for cause" tests other companies have, as a % of their total workforce?
Do they do:

a) “For cause” testing

b) Pre-employment testing

c) Random testing

and if yes to (c) what % of these are positive (as a proportion of their total workforce?).
