National Pool Testing

If your company is regulated by a Department of Transportation agency, you must adhere to random drug testing to ensure the safety of your operations. Random testing is regulated. Depending on your industry, there are different testing frequency rates used, and the staff here at Test Smartly Labs is here to help you comply with national pool testing.

Understanding Frequency Rate

Let’s say your business is required to adhere to an annual test rate of 50% for drugs and 10% for alcohol. For an employer of 100 people in safety-sensitive positions, this means 50 will be selected for random drug testing and 10 for random alcohol testing. However, if you only have a handful of people filling these roles, things become problematic. It’s far less random and unsuspecting when there are only two or three people in the pool.

How National Pool Testing Works

If this describes your business, we’re here to help. National pool testing allows you to include the names of your safety-sensitive employees with those of other small businesses in the industry across the country. Using computer programs, we ensure the process is verified random with no chances of discrimination or bias.

Certain companies can opt for the formation of a standalone pool, and our staff is here to help you better understand your options. We offer testing solutions to fit a variety of needs. Just some of the services we offer to help keep you compliant include:

  • Pre-employment testing
  • Reasonable suspicion testing
  • Return-to-duty testing
  • Background checks

Maintaining a drug-free workforce keeps your employees safe, improves morale, and increases your bottom line. Call or stop by your nearest Test Smartly Labs today to learn more about national pool testing and other options today.
