MORRISTOWN, N.J., March 14, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- ProSight Specialty® Insurance announced a new offering today that raises the bar on safety standards in the transportation industry by offering an enhanced drug test to its customers that goes beyond standard DOT-compliant testing to eliminate the riskiest drivers that typically go undetected. The same advantages are available for crane, scaffold and solar contractor customers in ProSight's Building and Building Services niche.
With the goal of delivering forward-thinking solutions to transportation companies, ProSight partnered with Foley Carrier Services, a prominent transportation compliance firm, to create ProSight's Drug Testing Program powered by Foley. This program includes a robust drug testing package to help transportation customers identify drivers utilizing drugs not monitored in a typical Department of Transportation drug test.
ProSight created the program in response to strong customer demand for a fleet compliance product that provides greater insight into employee safety profiles while also managing the burdensome and time consuming process of DOT compliance.
Research identified that risky drivers often have a short tenure of service, which can be extremely expensive due to tardiness, missing work and performance issues. All of these impact our customers' bottom line by increasing costs.
Statistics show that the current DOT-compliant drug screen panel does not include many contemporary drugs that, if included in a drug screen, may provide a more complete profile of driver substance use. Inadequate testing is an acknowledged problem in the industry, because the standard test fails to detect a wide range of drugs that can lead to accidents and undesirable behavior among drivers.
"ProSight is fully committed to working with industry experts to solve problems that affect our transportation customers," says Jeremy Zottneck, President for Niche Transportation at ProSight. "We're very excited to partner with Foley to offer an enhanced drug test that will help customers boost their productivity, decrease dangerous incidents and improve overall ROI."
ProSight's Drug Testing Program powered by Foley includes three options, all offered by Foley to ProSight policyholders at a discount off retail pricing:
1. Enhanced Drug Testing package
- An enhanced 10-panel drug test that uncovers risky pharmaceutical drugs that account for 30 percent of post-accident positive tests and is 2-3 times more likely to return a positive result
- Nationwide network of 9,000 testing centers
- Faster than average results when compared to industry standards.
2. Driver File Management package Includes the Enhanced Drug Testing package above, plus:
- Maintenance of all DOT Driver Files in Audit Ready fashion
- Tracking Motor Vehicle Records
- Storing Cognitive/medical assessments
- Handling Background checks
3. Basic DOT Testing package
- Includes the standard DOT-compliance test conveniently administered by Foley
ProSight Specialty Insurance and Foley Carrier Services are both committed to providing solutions that meet the current risk concerns of today's transportation industry professionals. For more information about ProSight's Drug Testing Program powered by Foley visit: www.prosightspecialty.com
