Why did you open a drug and alcohol testing facility?
A sober and safe workplace is fundamental to the success of any business.For the workers, for the employers and for the customers. Testing both for pre-employment, and randomly, has an immense, measurable positive impact for the companies for which we provide our services. For the HR Executive or safety officer in any company, there has never been a more dangerous time. The relaxation of the marijuana laws and the opioid epidemic means there has never been a time when a drug free workplace was more of a necessity.
What was your background? How many years?
I have been providing drug and alcohol testing services to the Las Vegas valley since 2009. Arcpoint is the only DATIA accredited facility in the valley. To keep our accreditation we have to maintain the highest standards. We also provide onsite 24 hour cover. Whether its an overturned semi on the I15 at 3 in the morning or a private surgical ward, where the morphine is going missing, we provide professional services by well trained staff.
Other community involvement? Organizations?
We provide free presentations on drug use in the community and are accredited to provide ‘Continuing Legal Education’ credits on substance abuse among the legal profession. We have the ‘Local Emerging Small Business’ certification.
