appointment and the test results being sent to the employer. In some cases usually involving largeemployers, and jobs requiring many workers there may be a delay of up to 5 working days to get testresults to the employer during which time the worker is not paid and cannot travel to work.This pre access process is industry standard and must be completed for each job.b)
Drug paraphernalia retailers sell a wide selection of synthetic urine kits, which come complete with asmall heating pad, concealment instructions, and often a money back guarantee that you will pass thetest.Failing a test once will mean a 24 hour rest period followed by a re-test, allowing for whatever method of countermeasure selected to be retried.The screening clinic staff cannot search you in any way. You are occasionally requested to lift your shirtand empty your pockets but many clinics are little more than a series of cubicles with a toilet and securityis essentially zero.While many clinics test for temperature a great deal do not and so it is possible to simply sneak in asample from a clean friend.Herbal cleansing regimens available at any health store can purge many peoples systems quickly and canenable someone using drugs to clean up long enough to give a clean sample.c)
The logic that if a person can be clean for one test they will be safe and drug free on a jobsite is unrealisticat best. The pre-access testing method is inconvenient, requires workers to travel all around town at theirown expense, and costs people valuable time at work. A 5 business day delay for a journeyman at $42 perhour amounts to an income loss of $2100 not including pension, benefits, and other money.Pre access testing appears to discriminate heavily (by coincidence or design) against marijuana users. Atesting regimen that targets the least harmful and lowest risk people in the light recreational categorieswhile almost completely ignoring hard drug users of cocaine, heroin, painkillers, and other drugs thataffect a person on and off the job in a dramatic way does not strike me as being productive given thecosts of the system to everyone.The status quo is insufficient and creates hardships ranging from very minor to moderate on a veryregular basis.
Two: Rapid Site Access Program Information
A worker (from any trade) voluntarily enrolls in the program by signing up online or through their unionhiring hall. If they have had a pre-access urine test in the past 90 days it is considered valid, otherwisethey must perform one standard breath/urine pre-access test at which point they are declared “active” inthe RSAP system. The worker can now take a call on day one, report for work on day two and beginimmediately. If selected in a monthly random draw to perform an oral fluids and breath alcohol test theworker is collected on paid time at work and accompanied by a supervisor to the jobsite gate or onsitelocation where testing vehicles are waiting.
