Third Party Management Services
As a nationwide provider of third party management for employer drug and alcohol testing programs, we have the ability to meet your needs throughout the country no matter the size of your company. Based on the number of regulated employees, Oschmann Employee Screening Services can set up a company specific testing program to meet the federal requirements or enroll you in our FRA drug testing consortium.
Consortium testing is ideal for smaller companies and owner/operators to meet the requirements. A Consortium pools your regulated employees with regulated employees from other companies in order to have a large enough base to select individuals equitably throughout the year.
We are highly regarded by the Federal and State Enforcement Agents from the various modes that have audited our members’ programs. The Department of Transportation regulations allow for Consortiums to administrate the random testing of regulated employees in order to comply with the DOT standards.
