New Era also provides the most secure and easy-to-use online account management system in the drug and alcohol consortium industry.

MIS Reports

When starting a new alcohol and drug testing program, many employers struggle with keeping track of test results, updating employee records, and other day-to-day maintenance of data. With New Era Drug Testing, we take the hassle out of reporting with Management Information Systems (MIS) services that help you stay organized, give results in report formats that make sense, keep your company completely prepared for audits, and complete any DOT annual report requirements.

Random Employee Selection

The Department of Transportation requires that employers conduct random, unannounced drug and alcohol tests on employees each year, but unless your organization has a system for selecting and testing employees already in place, the process can be arduous and time-consuming. With New Era Drug Testing’s automated random selection program, we make sure your organization is staying DOT-compliant so you can concentrate on what matters most: running a successful business.

Random Selection

Database Management

To remain compliant with DOT regulations, all transportation companies must maintain and produce reports of a well-documented alcohol and drug testing program. Though the task of keeping perfect records may seem daunting, with New Era Drug Testing, we take the hassle out of managing a complex database, keeping track of hard copies and files, and organizing your drug testing program results, reports, and employee files into an easy-to-use, secure online database.

Medical Review Officer (MRO) Services

A Medical Review Officer (MRO) is a physician that reviews all drug and alcohol test results and reports the results to the employee and employer. New Era’s Medical Review Officer service is available for companies that desire the results of their drug tests to be interpreted by an AAMCO-certified Medical Doctor (M.D.), and our affiliate MRO physicians have gone through the appropriate training programs to ensure your business stays compliant with DOT regulations

Drug Free Workplace Program Audit

Because the Department of Transportation (DOT) retains the right to inspection workplaces and testing facilities, request annual reports, and audit an employer’s Drug Free Workplace program or drug testing program at any time, organizations must be prepared to present documentation of drug testing history, employee records, blind sample submission findings, and more. With New Era Drug Testing, we’ll help ready you for any inspection, audit, or annual report.

Hire Right With Pre Employment Drug Tests

Hiring even one irresponsible employee can damage your business’s reputation, cause property damages, cost millions in lawsuits and fines and, in the worst cases, endanger the lives of other workers and civilians. To help keep your business safe and save you money, New Era helps organization make wise hiring decisions by conducting pre employment drug tests for marijuana, cocaine, opiates (opium and codeine derivatives), amphetamines (amphetamines and methamphetamines), and phencyclidine (PCP), as well as comprehensive background screenings that are compliant with all federal, state, and local laws.
