Global HR Research, a company which provides employment background screening and investigative services, has expanded its offerings to include comprehensive substance abuse testing. According to The National Institute on Drug Abuse, employed drug abusers cost companies about twice as much in medical and worker’s compensation claims as compared to drug-free coworkers.
“With substance abuse testing, drug incidents and associated risks can be greatly reduced,” explains Brandon G. Phillips, chief operating officer for Global HR Research. He adds, “Drug and alcohol abuse not only jeopardizes the health and safety of all employees, it can also negatively impact job productivity. Companies that implement drug testing programs minimize risk and ensure a safer, more productive work environment.”
Global HR Research’s substance abuse testing program includes:
• Pre-Employment, Random and Post-Accident Testing
• Reasonable-Cause Programs
• Department of Transportation (DOT) and non-DOT regulated programs
• Multiple Tests: Urine, Oral, Hair — Lab Based & Instant Tests
• Expert Witness Testimony
• Record Retention and Management
• Expert Medical Review Officer (MRO) Services
• Laboratory Selection, Management and Optimization Services
• Monthly Consolidated and Easy-To-Reconcile Billing
• Complete Chain of Custody and Administrative Duties
Global HR Research has partnered with two national patient service centers, Quest Diagnostics and LabCorp. This partnership provides Global HR access to more than 10,000 testing locations throughout the country. “Our goal,” said Phillips “is to simplify the employment screening process for our clients.” Additionally, clients may view patient service center locations and obtain test results online at www.globalhrresearch.com. Results may also be received through a dedicated computer fax.
