Drug Testing

The Whiz Guys are Certified Drug Screening Professionals (CDSP), Certified Alcohol Screening Professionals (CASP), and Certified Breath Alcohol Technicians (BAT). The Whiz Guys are a collection site for both DOT and non-DOT Drug and Alcohol Tests. They conduct drug tests for many reasons including pre-employment, random, reasonable suspicion, post-accident, or return to duty. The Whiz Guys are certified to follow the proper collection and control procedures. They have the proper paperwork, testing equipment, and testing protocol to ensure safe and accurate drug and alcohol tests.

As the collection site, The Whiz Guys collect the sample and then safely ship the sample to a certified lab where it is tested. After the test is conducted at the lab, the results are quickly forwarded back to the Designated Employee Representative (DER). The entire process is professional, quick, and easy. Companies are required by the FMCSA to declare a DER. The Whiz Guys can train or refer your DER to a training facility in order to make your company compliant with FMCSA guidelines. The Whiz Guys take their job very seriously and follow guidelines set forth by the Department of Transportation (DOT) and Federal Motor Carrier’s Safety Administration (FMCSA). The Whiz Guys are open for accepting new accounts and welcomes you to call and set up an account for your business today!

The Whiz Guys offer the service of being a Consortium/Third Party Administrator (CTPA) for your company. This means they provide your company with an initial pre-employment/baseline drug screen followed by random drug testing services. The Whiz Guys enter your employees into a pool and use a scientific program (randomizer) to make selections for random testing. The Whiz Guys contact your DER to schedule the random drug test. In cases that involve post-accident drug and alcohol testing, The Whiz Guys offer after hours and on-site services.

NOTE: Employers (and C/TPAs) subject to more than one DOT Agency drug and alcohol testing rule may continue to combine covered employees into a single random selection pool. However, companies (and C/TPAs) doing so must test at or above the highest minimum annual random testing rates established by the DOT Agencies under whose jurisdiction they fall. For example, an employer having both FMCSA- and FRA-covered employees in one pool must test, as a minimum rate, 50% for drugs and 10% for alcohol. PHMSA- and USCG-regulated employees should not to be placed in DOT random alcohol testing pools. Contact the appropriate DOT Agency for additional clarification.

[Please note that USCG covered employees may be combined with DOT covered employees in drug testing pools even though the USCG is now part of the Department of Homeland Security.]
