ONSITE Drug Testing

ONSITE Drug Testing 

Onsite collections can save you TIME and MONEY.  When factoring in your employee wages for travel and wait times, your drug test per person could be costing you more than you think.  The trip to the clinic does make sense at times, but more often than not, our onsite service can be more beneficial.  Give us a call and we can help assess your situation.  We have found that Onsite Testing is the most effective way to drug test large groups of employees with a minimal loss of productivity. 

DOT Announces Oral Fluid Drug Testing to Federal Procedures

The Department of Transportation (DOT) has published a final ruling to expand its drug testing procedures to include oral fluid testing, effective June 1, 2023. This is a significant change, as the DOT previously allowed only urine drug testing for safety-sensitive positions, and the agency first published guidelines surrounding oral fluid back in October 2019.

In order for employers to use oral fluid drug testing, the US Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) will need to certify at least two laboratories for oral fluid testing, which has yet to be completed as of August 31, 2023.

Consortium Services

Valley Drug Tests offers random drug and alcohol testing selections through our consortium services.  We can place your regulated employees (DOT / FAA / FMCSA / USCG) into an appropriate random selection consortium to facilitate your random selections.

In addition, if you have non-regulated employees whom you wish to randomly test for drugs and/or alcohol, we can place them into our non-regulated selection consortium or, if you prefer, we can create a company-specific selection pool to draw from as well.
