Non-DOT drug tests ensure all of your employees are clean
Employers depend on workers throughout their organization to perform at a high level in the name of safety and accuracy. Completing non-DOT drug tests for employees not covered by DOT regulations ensures your workforce is clean regardless of their duties.
While drug testing is a highly regulated issue for DOT-covered employees who perform safety-sensitive functions, non-DOT drug tests are largely left to the discretion of employers. The exceptions are OSHA-reportable incidents in which work-related injuries or illnesses occur at the workplace.
Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC) conducts and coordinates non-DOT drug tests for a wide range of workers. This can include office personnel, warehouse workers, and others not covered by DOT regulations. Non-DOT drug tests are now available upon request that do not include testing for THC, the active ingredient in marijuana.
Non-DOT drug tests check for impairment at any point in employment
Many employers require non-DOT drug tests as a condition of the pre-employment process. In addition, reasonable suspicion and post-accident non-DOT drug tests occur during the time of employment.
Rapid/instant testing (urine only) is a common request in cases of reasonable suspicion for non-DOT drug tests. If a prescription drug or possible illegal drug shows up in the results, the sample will go to a lab for further testing with those results available in about three business days. The results of non-DOT drug tests do not show up on the DOT Clearinghouse.
A member of our team often can arrive at your location within 90 minutes of your call, assuming a reasonable distance, with results available in 15-30 minutes. You also have the option of escorting employees to a testing facility for non-DOT drug tests. It is imperative that a company representative transport the worker in the case of reasonable suspicion, since this means you have declared them impaired.
We have access to 17,000 drug test collection sites coast to coast, including our own collection sites for DOT and non-DOT drug tests in Appleton, Oshkosh and Green Bay with fully vaccinated staffs.
