Atlanta – October 5, 2017 – InfoMart, a leading provider of global background and identity screening solutions, announced today that they have broadened their occupational health program to include both physicals and the xCup™, the latest in instant, modernized drug testing. InfoMart’s suite of occupational health services defends companies from liability for negligence, regulatory sanctions, and the loss of goods. Physicals are an enhancement to their already comprehensive drug and alcohol screening programs, which meet a wide range of needs from basic pre-employment testing to compliance with regulations outlined by the Department of Transportation. In addition to physicals, they now offer drug screening via the xCup™, a device that delivers immediate, accurate results for up to ten illicit and prescription drugs. Occupational health services are available on a random and post-hire basis in addition to use for pre-employment vetting.
“Drug or alcohol-dependent employees pose an obvious risk in the transportation industry, but all companies need to be leery of substance abuse,” says Tim Gordon, InfoMart’s Senior Vice President. “Long-haul truck drivers and manufacturing staff are subject to incredible strain. Physicals add an additional layer of protection; they guarantee that an employee is physically capable of the labor their position requires.” These services meet the needs of industries regulated by the DOT, who are required to comply with guidelines dictated by the Federal Motor Carrier Safety Administration (FMCSA). Gordon adds, “Our occupational health screening program is fully automated and offers companies the highest level of risk mitigation.”
InfoMart has provided comprehensive background screening solutions to companies worldwide for nearly thirty years. Through their partnership with Alere eScreen, InfoMart delivers customizable drug screening programs, including traditional lab-based testing, instant drug screens, random testing programs, and alcohol screening. Each of these services, which are available at thousands of locations across the country, mitigate risk while adhering to drug-free workplace policies.
