Salas Minor Emergency Center performs drug and alcohol testing using the Department of Transportation Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Regulations to address both the daily and unusual drug testing circumstances, to ensure accuracy and consistency for all clients.
Salas Minor Emergency Center can assist your company with random drug and alcohol testing. All that is required from your company is an updated employee list for quarterly random selection. This includes deleting terminated and other non-eligible/non-covered employees from the random pool. We will take the sole responsibility of the selection process and will notify the designated employer representative of the employee selection list. A few pointers that will insure your company is DOT compliant and/or compliant with your company drug policy are as follows:
- Maintain separate random list for DOT and Non-DOT employees.
- Test all employees selected for random testing within the quarter chosen.
Your company’s supervisors and managers can provide valuable support in introducing and carrying out a drug-free workplace program. They cannot do it alone, however; they will need guidance, direction, and a support system in place. Salas Minor Emergency Center will provide your management staff with information in the following areas:
- The legal aspects of drug testing.
- Workplace drug use statistics.
- Signs and symptoms of drug use.
- Reasonable Cause / Reasonable suspicion protocol.
- Effectively dealing with difficult situations.
- The role of supervisors and managers.
- Drug-Free workplace standards.
- Underlined Benefits of testing.
- Employee’s Personal Health and Safety.
- Manifestations and Behavioral Cues of drug use.
- Documentation and Training.
DNA Paternity Testing
Paternity Testing simply means establishing fatherhood. Everyone is born with a unique genetic blueprint known as DNA (DeoxyriboNucleic Acid). DNA paternity testing is a conclusive way to determine paternity because DNA is passed down from the mother and father to a child.
Our primary focus is ensuring that our clients achieve peace of mind as we assist them throughout the paternity test process. SMEC delivers technology and services that makes the paternity testing process as simple and stress-free as possible, including using a painless mouth swab (buccal swab) for collection instead of drawing blood.
We understand the impact that our test results have on a family’s life and waiting for results can be stressful. You want the results to be fast, accurate and on time. It’s that simple.
