Programs & Services

Safety First provides comprehensive drug testing/screening programs that include testing for reasonable cause, post-accident, return to duty, pre-employment, and random sampling. In the development of the Safety First division, BHS recognized that a comprehensive approach to this problem is necessary–one which includes comprehensive policy development, staff education and training, a customized testing program, and an effective support system for the intervention and recovery of employees who need help. As an additional feature for qualified clients, BHS offers Department of Transportation (“DOT”) compliance review services. Services include mock audits to help identify common violations cited by the DOT as well as audit support as an actual audit is being conducted. BHS maintains the distinction of being the only regional Managed Behavioral Health Organization with a drug testing division.
