DOT non-DOT Random Testing
For employers who are regulated by the Department of Transportation (DOT), St. Luke’s Occupational Medicine offers membership in its Random Drug & Alcohol Testing Consortium that meets DOT requirements.
Membership in the consortium helps minimize workplace conflict because employers are removed from the selection process. Administrative fees are low and we can arrange for multiple site clinic participation for a very small additional fee.
Member employers provide a listing of employees who are subject to the regulations. Throughout the calendar year, periodic “pulls” of the entire consortium are made. (On average, consortium membership totals more than 1,000 employees.) The selection process is done via computer and is completely random.
All employees of consortium member companies have an equal chance of being selected each time a “pull” for drugs or alcohol is conducted. In other words, once an individual has been selected, that individual’s name is returned to the pool. That individual has the same chance of being selected during the next “pull.”
Non-DOT Random Testing
For employers who are non-federal and not subject to Department of Transportation regulations, we offer a random testing program similar to the consortium testing described above but individualized to meet the specific requirements of each company. Member employers provide St. Luke’s Occupational Medicine with a list of employees who are subject to testing per the company’s policy. Random “pulls” are conducted throughout the year based on the percentages indicated by the company.
All employees in the program have an equal chance of being selected each time a “pull” for drugs and/or alcohol is conducted. In other words, once an individual has been selected, that individual’s name is returned to the pool. That individual has the same chance of being selected during the next “pull.”
