Non-DOT Drug Testing

Workplace Screening Intelligence offers non-regulated drug testing that gives employers the freedom to design a drug testing program without the stricter requirements of the federal government.  Non-regulated testing means you can choose the type of specimen to test (urine, hair, oral fluids and blood).  Employers can choose a panel to fit their needs as well as  rely on the  electronic chain of custody.  Workplace Screening Intelligence offers drug screen collections at over 20,000 sites.

Typically, a standard 5 panel drug urine test is the drug test most frequently used by private employers. The 5 panel drug test usually tests for commonly abused substances, including THC, Opiates, PCP, Cocaine, and Amphetamines. Workplace Screening Intelligence can provide expanded panels as well as alternative matrix of hair testing, oral fluids testing as well as Instant Point of Care Testing to fit your business needs.   When you work with Workplace Screening Intelligence, you can expect accuracy as well as results delivered quickly.

Role of the Medical Review Officer:

Medical Review Officers (MROs) play a critical role in workplace drug testing programs, ensuring that the process is carried out with the highest degree of fairness for both employers and employees. Their primary responsibilities involve reviewing and interpreting confirmed positive drug test results to determine if there is a legitimate medical explanation for the finding. By doing so, they act as an impartial gatekeeper to guard against wrongful accusations and preserve the integrity of the testing process.

One of the indispensable benefits that MROs offer in this capacity is the ability to overturn initial positive test results caused by legal prescription medications. Should an employee have a verified prescription that explains the presence of a certain substance in their system, the MRO can legitimately classify the test result as negative. This ensures that employees are not unjustly penalized for following their doctor’s orders, thereby maintaining a just workplace environment.

Furthermore, MROs provide what are known as Safety Sensitive Letters when they come across a potential health or medication-related risk that could impact an employee’s ability to safely perform their job. These letters serve as advisories to the employers, recommending possible adjustments or precautions to prevent workplace accidents. This aspect of the MRO’s duties highlights their integral role in maintaining safety standards and protecting not only the individual employee but also their co-workers and the public from potential harm resulting from impairment due to prescribed medication use. The work of MROs ultimately supports a safe, ethical, and legally-compliant workplace, contributing to a culture of trust and safety.

Safety Sensitive Letters:

Safety-sensitive positions within a workplace hold significant responsibilities where the well-being of employees, clients, and the public is at stake. Ensuring that individuals in these roles are fully capable of executing their duties is paramount. This is where Safety Sensitive Letters (SSLs) come into play, serving as a critical liaison between healthcare providers, employees, and employers.

What are Safety Sensitive Letters?

Safety Sensitive Letters, also known as Fitness-for-Duty letters, are documents typically written by healthcare professionals to alert employers that an employee or a job applicant taking a legally prescribed medication may have some impairment that could affect their ability to safely perform certain job functions. The key goal of these letters is not to disclose private medical details but to ensure that the individual’s condition does not pose a risk in the workplace, particularly when it comes to safety-sensitive positions such as operating heavy machinery, driving commercial vehicles, or managing hazardous materials.

Addressing Safety Sensitive Letters: The Approach

When a healthcare provider prescribes medication that may cause drowsiness, slow reaction times, or other impacts that raise safety concerns, they must consider whether these side effects can compromise safety when the patient is at work. In these situations, the healthcare provider typically sends an SSL to the employer.

The Purpose

The letter’s primary purpose is to strike a responsible balance between the employee’s privacy rights and the employer’s need to maintain a safe working environment. It does not diagnose, but instead, informs on potential safety implications without disclosing the specific medical condition or medication.

The Audience

The audience for the SSL comprises employers, HR managers, and safety officers who have a vested interest in the safe operations within their organization. These recipients use the information to make informed decisions about an employee’s work situation and take appropriate measures to mitigate risks.

Addressing the Letter

SSLs should be written with care, respecting medical confidentiality. The address paragraph typically contains the recipient’s name and title, company name, and address to ensure it reaches the right hands immediately. The opening sentence should state the letter’s intent without divulging sensitive medical information.

The body of the letter outlines the existence of a condition related to the employee’s ability to safely perform job duties. It is recommended to provide guidance on work restrictions or modifications, if applicable, based on the general side effects of the prescription rather than specific medical details.

Follow-ups and Data Handling

The SSL generally advises the employer to follow up with the employee in question regarding their ability to perform safety-sensitive tasks and to keep the information in strict confidence. Employers must handle SSLs with the utmost care, in compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act (ADA), the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA), and any other relevant privacy laws and regulations.

What does the Employer Do?

Once the employer receives a Safety Sensitive Letter, they request the employee goes to their prescribing physician or Occupational Physician to determine if the individual can perform safety sensitive duties on their current prescription.  In most cases, the prescription will be changed to one that will not interfere with their safety sensitive duties.
