Why You Should Have a Drug-Testing Policy In Place
Who We Have Helped
San Francisco Public Utilities Commission (SFPUC) has been working with Preferred Alliance for over 10 years. We have serviced them with unique reporting requests, onsite testing at the job site, and attended meetings where expert witness testimony was required. We continue to work with the SFPUC on varies projects throughout Northern California.
“Merced County Schools Insurance Group has contracted with Preferred Alliance since DOT-compliance for our Member District’s commercially licensed drivers. The program has been seamless, and without exception, perfectly compliant and trouble-free.”
“DOT regulations are very complex with plenty of gray areas – one mistake can close us down. Preferred Alliance’s timely response and accurate information on how to manage the testing process has helped us achieve ‘letter-perfect’ compliance. We have had a great relationship for almost 10 years – there’s no reason to consider anyone else.”
“I have had the pleasure of working with Preferred Alliance for our seasonal drug testing needs since 1998. In our industry, we place high demands on our testing providers for flexible scheduling, quick turnaround, and competitive pricing. Preferred Alliance has consistently exceeded our expectations.”
Drug Testing in the Construction Industry
Employee drug-testing for the construction industry is not state or federally mandated, however, more and more construction companies are implementing drug-testing policies.
These policies help keep the job sites safe and the company accountable.
At a construction site having someone under the influence can be extremely dangerous and while nothing can eliminate that risk, having a drug-testing policy in place can significantly reduce it.
Because drug-testing for the construction industry isn’t federally or state-mandated, there aren’t the same guidelines that there are for other industries, though privacy and employment laws need to be taken into consideration. Because there is less structure, it can be confusing knowing where to start and that is where Preferred Alliance comes in.
We have experience working with many companies in the construction industry and helping them design a drug-testing system that works for them and we will put that experience to work on your behalf.
