No Premium Discount
Although the COMPARABLE Program does not offer a premium discount, it does meet the requirements for eligibility as a State Construction Contractor.
Ohio law dictates that all contractors and subcontractors (in state or out of state), no matter how many employees they have, who want to bid on, to provide labor services on, or to supervise workers on a State of Ohio construction project must have a drug free program in place that meets these minimum requirements:
The requirements of the COMPARABLE Program:
- A written substance abuse policy
- Employee education
- Supervisor training
- Drug & Alcohol Testing
- Employee Assistance Program (EAP)
- Annual Progress Report
Although RANDOM testing is not a requirement of the COMPARABLE Program, the company has the right to implement random testing for the entire workforce. All other types of drug & alcohol testing are a requirement of the COMPARABLE Program.
