Background Checks By Need: Drug Testing & Occupational Health Services

Workplace Drug & Health Screening

It's no secret that substance abusers are less productive, more prone to errors, a workplace safety threat and more likely to file workers' compensation claims.

Protect your organization and your workforce with SterlingBackcheck's reliable drug & health screening solution. Depending on your pre-employment screening needs, SterlingBackcheck can provide accurate, compliant drug testing, alcohol testing and any necessary physical or medical examinations.

Convenient Nationwide Drug Testing That's Fast & Accurate

Employers can now create and manage a comprehensive substance abuse and employment drug testing program with far less effort, no paperwork and greatly improved accuracy. SterlingBackcheck's drug & health screening solutions are among the fastest and most convenient available with:

  • A nationwide network of 12,000+ collection sites and health clinics (many with paperless processing)
  • Electronic results that are instantly integrated into SterlingBackcheck's technology platform upon release
  • Medical Review Officer-verified results that ensure the highest accuracy for drug and alcohol tests

With a wide variety of testing panels to choose from, we're able to offer solutions which adhere to the latest industry best practices and regulations. This includes the Health & Human Services (HHS) Drug Testing Profile – standardized lab-based urine drug testing for your non-federal workers. The HHS Profile lowers cut-off levels for drugs such as cocaine and amphetamines/methamphetamines, and adds screening for heroin and MDMA (Ecstasy) for more thorough and accurate detection of drug abuse.
