Selecting Employees for Random Drug Testing

Employers often choose to include random drug testing as part of their program. Employers that conduct random testing must take great care in knowing with certainty they are truly selecting employees at random. Should an employee find a way to even suggest the selection wasn’t 100% random, an employer greatly reduces the effectiveness of random screening and exposes the company to potential liabilities.

The best solution is to have a third party randomly select employees for testing for you. This is yet another service that GCWS provides.

All drug test results are reviewed and verified by a medical review officer (MRO).

Court Ordered Testing

Oftentimes, and at an increasing rate, court cases require drug and alcohol testing for individuals to prove their sobriety over a longer period of time. Some individuals opt to do it voluntarily, as well. Most commonly, a 5 panel drug test or 10 panel drug test is used, although hair follicle drug testing is sometimes requested. If you or your legal representative needs more information about court-ordered drug or alcohol testing, contact us today to see what your options are.

Some causes for court-ordered drug testing include:

DOT Physicals
 

A Department of Transportation (DOT) physical is a physical exam that is required of people who drive commercial vehicles. The point of a DOT physical is to make sure that people who are driving commercial motor vehicles are physically, mentally, and emotionally fit. The Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA) requires them for the safety of the public.  

You will need a DOT physical if you: 

  • Drive a vehicle designed to carry more than 15 people.

  • Are paid to drive a vehicle designed to carry more than 8 people.

  • Carry hazardous material in your vehicle that requires your vehicle to have a placard.

  • Drive a vehicle on the interstate with a gross combination weight rating, gross vehicle weight rating, or gross combination weight of over 10,000 pounds. 
    What to Bring to a DOT Physical

  • Commercial drivers need to bring a complete list of their medications, including the dosage regimen, dosages, and their doctors’ names and addresses. To save time, it’s also recommended that drivers fill out the health history questionnaire before coming to the clinic. 

  • To make sure the exam runs as smoothly as possible, drivers with certain medical issues need to bring the appropriate documents or items. For example:

  • Drivers with vision or hearing problems must bring their eyeglasses, contacts, or hearing aids

  • Drivers with diabetes must bring the most recent lab results from their Hemoglobin A1C (HgAIC) and their blood sugar logs

  • Drivers with heart-related issues must, at minimum, bring a letter from their cardiologist that outlines their medical history and current medications, and indicates that they are safe to work
     

DOT physical includes:

  • DOT physical test includes a complete physical examination.  All the tests in DOT physical are designed to see whether you’re in good enough health to operate a commercial vehicle safely. DOT physical test will cover the following tests and examinations:
    Vision

  • With or without correction, drivers must have a vision of at least 20/40 in each eye. They must also have a peripheral vision of at least 70″ in the horizontal meridian in each eye.
    Hearing

  • With or without an earpiece, drivers must be able to detect a “forced whisper” at a distance of 5 feet or less. This criterion corresponds to a hearing loss of fewer than 40 decibels in the better ear.
    Pulse rate and blood pressure

  • The medical examiner will check the driver’s blood pressure and pulse for increased blood pressure and irregular heartbeats.
    Urinalysis 

  • It is necessary to do a urinalysis. The test examines for signs of diabetes or other underlying medical problems. In addition, urinalysis may also be used to screen for drugs. 
    Physical examination:
    The DOT physical will cover a variety of topics, including:

  • Appearance in general

  • The eyes (cataracts, glaucoma, macular degeneration, etc.)

  • Senses of hearing (scarring of the tympanic membrane, perforated eardrums, etc.)

  • Mouth and esophagus (to look for problems breathing or swallowing)

  • The heart (murmurs, extra sounds, pacemaker, etc.)

  • Examining the lungs and chest, but not the breasts (abnormal breathing, impaired respiratory functions, cyanosis, etc.)

  • Viscera and Abdomen (enlarged liver, viscera, muscle weakness)

  • The circulatory system (abnormal pulse, carotid, varicose veins)

  • Urinary and Genito-urinary (hernias)

Pre-Employment and Annual Exams

  • We want to keep your employees healthy and keep your liabilities down! We can manage your physical exam program from beginning to end in compliance with your industry standards.

  • We offer customizable pre-employment and annual physical exams as well as employee health checks. We get to know your needs and ensure you can screen employees and maintain annual compliance with ease.

  • If you require a physical or medical clearance for your employees, you most likely also require a pre-employment screening or physical for all new hires. This physical may be required by a local Department of Health (DOH) or by  Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA).

  • A pre-employment physical ensures that the new hire is physically capable of performing the duties that will be associated with their job. It will also determine a baseline for your employees at time of employment so you can keep track of changes in their health. This means that a certain metric is recorded at hiring so you can keep track of changes in their health.

  • After hiring, an annual physical exam is an important part of maintaining occupational health and safety. For healthcare workers, the physical exam is crucial because it tells us that the employee is free of contagious diseases which may harm patients.

  • Many businesses choose to combine an employee’s annual physical with a TB test,  drug test,  and a seasonal flu shot.

  • Both pre-employment and annual physical exams keep track of the following:

  • Blood pressure

  • Height and weight

  • Body mass index (BMI)

  • Pulse rate

  • Respiration rate

  • Existing medical illnesses

  • Previous medical history

  • Allergies and general social history

EMPLOYEE HEALTH PHYSICAL

  • Even if you are not required by national or regional regulations, offering your employees a no-cost health check physical is a great way to ensure workplace safety and wellness.

  • Employee health physicals help workers be aware of their health and allow them to take proactive steps to improve their well-being. When compared to having employees out sick, providing employee health physicals can be a positive ROI for many organizations.
