Meridian staff includes primary care physicians, nurses, licensed social workers, licensed professional counselors, medical review officers, as well as certified EAP and substance abuse professionals.
Meridian can help develop, implement and maintain a comprehensive drug-free workplace program that operates in full compliance with the Bureau of Worker’s Compensation and Department of Transportation (DOT) services.
Options can include trainings, alcohol and drug screenings (conducted as an on-site service or at our health center), random testing, Medical Review Officer (MRO) services and more.
Drug Testing/Alcohol Testing
Meridian offers a full range of drug and alcohol testing, available as on-site services or conducted at a Meridian medical center. All tests are administered by a certified lab and breath alcohol technicians to ensure accurate, reliable results.
Drug screens help lower healthcare and workers’ compensation costs associated with work-related injuries (or impairment) while promoting better on-the-job performance and lowering health risks at your facility or worksites.
Meridian’s drug testing services minimize the negative impacts of substance abuse in the workplace such as absenteeism, lower productivity and injured workers/injured employees. Medical surveillance tools, like drug testing services, are also an important tool for companies mandated by law to meet the requirements of United States regulatory bodies like the Department of Transportation (DOT), Bureau of Workers Compensation (BWC), Occupational Health and Safety Administration (OSHA).
