First Choice Drug Testing

Good workers are always hard to find, and you don’t have any time to waste when you find the right people! But in certain occupations, you must ensure that your new hires are physically capable of doing the work; You must also ensure your employees are medically fit to return to duty in the event of a workplace accident, and you must document the injuries you “inherit” with each new hire. First Choice is Arkansas’ most trusted third-party administrator, and we have an experienced Medical Review Officer (MRO) on staff to interpret and verify all test results. We offer confidential drug and alcohol testing services and physicals by appointment.

Contact us whenever you have any questions about testing procedures or are unsure which physicals you’ll need to schedule for your new employees. We offer every conceivable laboratory test and physical at our southwest Little Rock lab or your workplace, and we can also help you with respirator fit, pulmonary function tests, medical clearances, audiograms, and blood draws. We offer the following types of physicals and lightning-fast turnaround time on all testing results.

Asbestos Exposure Exams-If your employees are involved in the demolition, salvage, removal, construction, transportation, disposal, or storage of asbestos or material containing asbestos, OSHA 1926.1101 mandates that they be regularly examined to determine if they have any medical issue that might be related to asbestos exposure.

DOT physical exams-We offer DOT physical exams for our partners in the transportation industry and can deliver same-day results so you can put your new drivers to work! We will never order unnecessary testing, and we work hard to issue a 2-year card whenever possible.

Fit-for-Duty or NON-DOT Physicals-When you make new hires, we’ll help you ensure that they’re fit to meet the physical requirements for the job. A fit-for-duty examination also helps you properly document prior injuries to protect yourself from frivolous workers’ compensation claims.

Silica Exposure Exams-We also offer silica exposure exams by appointment. OSHA 1910.105 mandates that employers shall make medical surveillance available at no cost to the employee and at a reasonable time and place, for workers who are occupationally exposed to respirable crystalline silica at or above the action level for 30 or more days per year.
