Companies today are focusing on being competitive by holding down costs and expenses. Onsite DOT and non DOT testing is a great way to save your company time and money. When you send an employee “off-site” to a clinic or a collection facility you not only run the chance of an employee cheating on the test, but your company incurs hard costs as well as soft including like lost productivity and lost revenue.
Let’s look at an example of the hard costs based on an estimated 2 hours for an “off-site test.” The math is pretty simple. Based on a $15 per hour employee:
- Your operating cost of a $15 employee x 2 hours = $30.00
- Your lost revenue of $65 per hour x 2 hours = $130.00
- Cost of the testing process $55.00
- Total Cost of Off-Site Testing = $215.00
When you choose onsite testing your average total time to complete a specimen collection is 10 minutes. This saves you a substantial amount of money and time when you multiply the costs, soft and hard, multiplied by your number of employees.
