UTCA Group Drug Testing Program
In response to federal and state drug testing requirements that continue to expand in impact and requests from members, UTCA has estalbished a discounted Group Drug Testing program for association member firms. Our association drug testing program meets all federal and state “legal” requirements at a considerable cost savings to program participants.
The USDOT and State of New Jersey mandate that employers drug test all commerical motor vehicle drivers (both inter and intrastate drivers) and employees engaged in gas or hazardous material pipeline work. Many private owners also require a drug testing program of contractors and suppliers. Drug tests that are required include pre-employment, periodical, random, post accident and reasonable suspicion.
The firm administering the UTCA Group Drug Testing Program is Ambassador Medical Services (AMSI). AMSI specializes in all phases of employee drug testing programs, with considerable experience with contractors and utility owners. This firm has the capability to conduct on-site employee drug testing which provides considerable savings.
Following are the program costs for the NIDA Five Drug Test:
|On-Site||Collection Site||Setup Fee||Alcohol Test||Post Accident|
