Businesses that contract with a Certified Third Party Administrator (C-TPA) to manage the complex aspects of their drug testing program benefit from savings in time and resources in addition to minimizing liability. Third party drug testing adds professional credibility to a drug testing program and ensures the organization complies with applicable regulations.
Wisconsin Drug Testing Consortium (WDTC), an accredited, Certified Third Party Administrator that specializes in DOT drug testing compliance and consortium enrollment, provides third party drug testing and other affordable services for corporate drug-free workplace programs and other initiatives.
“Our customers tell us the hassle of managing and coordinating an in-house program is not worth any perceived cost savings compared to the reliability and credibility of third party drug testing,” says Mike Bray, WDTC president. “Participating in a consortium is a cost-effective way to complete a testing program.”
Third Party Drug Testing Removes Program Complexity from Employer
A Certified Third Party Administrator such as WDTC is equipped with resources to coordinate the wide range of activities involved with managing a drug and alcohol testing program. Third party drug testing services typically include urine sample collections, breath alcohol technicians, lab services, and experts in state and federal regulations.
“There is a lot more involved with managing a drug and alcohol testing program than most people realize,” Bray says. “Businesses and human resources departments have enough on their plates with daily responsibilities without adding drug testing to the mix.”
WDTC also offers consortium enrollment that allows businesses to join a pool of several employers in a random testing program. WDTC works with its customers to help them remain in compliance with the DOT/FMCSA Drug and Alcohol Testing rules and regulations.
