Drug testing at our facility can be done 3  different ways, first by obtaining a urine sample from the donor in our  secure facility, second by way of oral fluid from the mouth and lastly  is obtaining a hair sample from the donor.  Our most sought after test,  the 8 panel urine POCT test which screens for opiates, marijuana, PCP,  cocaine, amphetamines, ecstasy, oxycodone and methamphetamines and gives  the employer instant results.  We also offer 5 and 12 panel testing to  satisfy all our clients drug and alcohol program needs.

These  tests can be conducted via a secured urine drug test, or point  of collection testing kit.  A POCT drug test provides instant results,  but is not legally defensible in court. A secured urine drug screen is  legally defensible, and results are verified by a SAMSHA approved  laboratory. Positive urine drug samples are reviewed by our Medical  Review Officer.  A positive drug result will be discussed with your  employee and our MRO to determine an action plan.  The action plan can  then be aligned with your company’s drug and alcohol policy. 

FIT TESTING

Are your workers wearing SCBA/half/full  masks in the workplace, having a proper fit test will ensure the masks  they are wearing properly fit their face and provide a good seal. We use  quantitative fit test procedures with our OHD Quantifit which is a  controlled negative pressure device that can detect minor leaks when  fitting an worker to a mask. This procedure is quick and efficient  while providing the employer with documentation that the employee was  tested to the proper standards. We have the capability of testing all  full face/half masks, we can use client supplied masks or supply the  masks for you. We carry Scott and MSA masks in all sizes as well as  North 7700 series mask in all sizes and have access to other brands as  required. 

INDUSTRIAL HEARING TESTING

Our  occupational technicians can perform hearing tests in our office using  our certified sound booth and testing equipment. We can also help our  clients develop an effective noise management program for the workplace  using our sound level meter to measure noise readings and determine what  type of hearing protection might be required.  Having your workers  hearing tested on a regular basis can help determine whether or not your  noise management program is working efficiently or needs further  assessment.
