Hire Image LLC offers drug screening that incorporates standard 5, 8, 9, and 10-panel urinalysis, as well as custom panels. We also arrange saliva swab testing, oral fluid testing, and hair testing. DOT testing and physicals are available as well.
For our drug screening tests, we utilize Labcorp and Quest collection sites located all across the country. Virtually any nearby lab can be used for convenience. Paperless registration of donors is quick and easy, but paper chain-of-custody forms are available, as well. Drug test results are reported by Medical Review Officers (MRO’s) using the most advanced technologies available. Negative results are available typically within 24-48 hours after collection. Drug screening test results can be part of a background screening report, or ordered separately.
Before implementing a drug-free workplace program, employers must familiarize themselves with all local, state and federal laws that may impact it.
