Workplace Screening Intelligence Random Drug Testing Overview  

Random drug testing is a method of testing employees for drug use without notice or warning. This method of testing is typically used in the transportation industry as it is mandated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) and other DOT Modes. The goal of random drug testing is to deter drug use among employees and ensure that employees are fit for duty.  

Standalone Pool vs. Consortium Pool  

Random drug testing is done through either a standalone pool or a consortium pool. A standalone pool is a testing program where an employer has its own pool of employees to draw from for random testing. A consortium pool is a group of employers who combine their employees in a single testing pool, which can make it easier to meet FMCSA testing requirements.   Workplace Screening provides both Standalone pools and consortium pools.  Smaller employers may benefit from consortium if they don’t have enough employees to stop over selection of employees.  Larger employers may want to use Standalone pool to be completely in charge of compliance.  

Random Drug Testing Program Cost and Benefits

Inputting employees into a Random Standalone pool  is $200.00 per year for the entire company and a charge for each employee to include random drug testing lab, MRO and collection of specimen.  This means the employer can choose to pay random pool fee and for each random test or have the choice to pay a flat fee per employee to include all random test and pool fee.
