MOST Drug Screening Information

Remember, you must be current with the MOST Substance Abuse Program before you arrive on the job.

MUST Safety Drug Program

The MOST Substance
Abuse Program is no
longer reciprocal
with the MUST
Safety Drug Program.

Therefore, if you take a
call with a Local that
contracts with MUST, you
will have to test with the
MUST Program.

Keep in mind that
every Local has their
own policy and procedures
regarding drug programs.

So if you plan on traveling,
you may want to talk to
the referral office of
each Local you visit
to see what their policy
is regarding their
drug program.
