The Occupational Health Center offers drug-and-alcohol testing services for client companies that have instituted a drug-free workplace initiative or that are required to conduct testing according to a federal mandate, such as from the Department of Transportation. Drug testing is conducted in accordance with guidelines established by the Substance Abuse & Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA).
The following types of testing can be performed:
- Post Accident
- Return to Duty
- Cause/Reasonable Suspicion
Random Testing Programs
The Occupational Health Center can also facilitate a testing program for companies that are required to, or wish to, test employees on a random basis. Companies that must randomly test employees under the rules and regulations of the Department of Transportation (DOT) are generally required to test at least 50 percent of covered employees annually, on a schedule reasonably spread out throughout the year. Companies not covered by these rules can choose the volume and schedule of tests that best meets their needs, or which is required by their drug-free workplace policies. The Center's data system can randomly select names from an assigned group.
