Detecting long term patterns of substance abuse in applicants and drivers is the first step in creating a drug-free workforce and safer roadways. It has never been more important.
Hair Testing for the Trucking Industry
Safer workplace. Safer roadways.
Impairment on the Roadways is a Life and Death Issue
Psychemedics deters drug usage with unrivaled certainty of detection.
A New High For Large Truck Fatalities (2017)
Data gathered on large truck accidents by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety is a sobering reminder of the tragic, and often costly, impacts of accidents involving large trucks.
With a critical driver shortage as the backdrop, trucking firms balance the need for speed in hiring with pressure to bring on the best. A national trend of expanding drug abuse makes it more important than ever to effectively screen applicants and employees.
A Psychemedics drug test using hair analysis eliminates two of the biggest problems for some of the most recognized trucking firms in the country.
- A 90-day picture of usage to identify habitual users
- Fully-observed collection method to thwart cheating
And our test deters usage. When applicants who use drugs find that Psychemedics is the test, they often opt out. When employees are given notice they will be tested, they either abstain or leave.
Certainty of Detection is what we deliver. Deterrence is what you get.
We help some of trucking's most recognized brands create drug-free workplaces and safer roadways.
Since we pioneered the market in 1986, Psychemedics has conducted millions of tests to reliably detect substance abuse and deter usage.
Things You Should Know
Five Reasons Psychemedics Hair Testing Is Selected By More Trucking Firms
All Hair Testing Is NOT The Same
It is all about our numbers being better than other hair testing labs.
• Unrivaled detection rate that is 2-3X the others.
• 60% less hair required. Fewest retests due to insufficient quantity.
• The only lab with FDA 510k clearance for every drug screen.
• Fastest turnaround time. The speed you need.
For the numbers that matter most, Psychemedics is just better.
We Make Cheating The Test A Thing Of The Past
Urine is ideal when you want to identify usage in the past day or two or meet DOT mandates. But to identify habitual users nothing is better than Psychemedics.
Our detection rate is unrivaled by any drug test.
We capture 90 days of usage patterns, enabling you to screen for habitual users. That plus an observed collection thwarts short-term abstinence or sample doctoring as an evasion tactic.
All the while identifying up to 10X more users.
Delivers The Lowest Cost-Per-User Identified
If the objective is to identify drug users, the key indicator is a positive test result. And the first building block to R.O.I. is the cost for each of those positives. Divide your total testing cost by the number of users you identify.
And then you know. Detection rate is everything. And ours is unrivaled.
Our cost-per-positive result beats every drug test by 2-10X.
Deter usage. Reduce risks. Lower liabilities.
Certainty of Detection is the Best Deterrent.
We say that often and it is proven true every day. As word gets out that you drug test with Psychemedics, you will find applicant and employee positive rates dropping. Many people won’t risk getting caught and change behavior or move on. Check online job forums. “Do they hair test” comes up often. That is where deterrence starts.
Hire drug-free. Create a drug-free workplace.
Reduced Risks. Great ROI. Happy CEO.
Why add Psychemedics to your program?

Ask for an ROI assessment and see how Psychemedics is literally an investment that pays dividends rather than a cost to the business.
