These rules include procedures for testing, frequency of tests, and substances tested for.

GLR Services & More provides the administration of employees who are subject to drug and alcohol testing. We complete four (the minimum allowable under DOT regulations) blind computer generated selections per calendar year. Every driver is eligible for every selection. The chances of being selected are dictated by the US DOT and for the current year are 50% for a drug test and 10% for an alcohol test. Our company also provides sample company policies to aid in the development of a standard policy to help your organization inform employees concerning your Drug and Alcohol Abuse/Misuse Prevention Program for both DOT-regulated programs and non-regulated Drug-Free programs.
