Our drug and Alcohol testing services include:
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.
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.
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.
