1. Can we test our employees for drugs and/or alcohol?
Yes. Every employer has the right to ensure a drug and alcohol-free workplace.
If you are not regulated by the Department of Transportation, we’ll help you develop a comprehensive drug-testing program, guide you through its complexities and custom fit it to your needs.
If you are mandated to test under DOT regulations, we’ll review your written policy and procedures to ensure your program is current.
2. How much does a drug testing program cost?
We at Sky Drug Testing can accommodate the Owner Operator with one truck, or we can customize pricing for larger companies with hundreds of employees. If you’re an Owner Operator call our office today to get a flat annual fee with your first test included!
3. Where do our employees go for testing?
At Sky Drug Testing we have access to thousands of Quest Patient Service Centers in areas near your business. We can locate a collection site for you and arrange testing in minutes. With the online donor pass process we can set up your testing without you having to wait on forms to be mailed to you.
4. Do you have a policy?
For DOT-regulated employers, a written policy is your first priority.
Having a policy in place is crucial, so we recommend employers have a written policy and procedures in place. That policy is the foundation of your testing program, and all employees required to submit to testing should receive a copy.
5. Is Sky Drug Testing current on regulatory updates?
Sky Drug Testing always remains current on all DOT subject matter. To stay current, our staff attends relevant seminars and conferences and attends annual conventions that provide regulatory updates. We’re members of DATIA (Drug & Alcohol Testing Industry Association)
6. Can I conduct random tests of employees?
DOT requires employers to conduct random testing. Minimum percentages are determined by the regulatory agency overseeing your organization.
For employers not regulated by DOT, state law will determine whether or not they can randomly test. Consult your legal counsel on any restrictions your state may have regarding random testing.
