Drug Testing Services
AMERICAN SAFETY DRUG TESTING SERVICES offers expert program management for both DOT and corporate policies. We provide several forms of substance abuse policies, including the following three DOT agencies:
(1) Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration “FMCSA”
(2) Federal Transit Administration “FTA”
(3) Pipeline and Hazardous Materials Safety Administration “PHMSA"
Our client-specific policies (non-DOT) are fully customizable to address individual client needs and requirements.
We have an exceptional success rate developing, implementing, and administering complex drug and alcohol programs. It is our practice to review and evaluate each client’s existing drug and alcohol testing policy. Based on our findings, we make recommendations for any adjustments to those policies to ensure compliance with regulatory and/or company requirements.
