What is the purpose of the NASAP?
To provide a safe and substance-free contractor workforce while protecting employee rights and privacy. NASAP includes a process for rehabilitation and keeps individuals that test positive from moving between contractor companies without successfully completing an approved rehabilitation program.
The NASAP reduces the unnecessary testing redundancy that now exists for many contractors, thereby reducing the overall administrative costs for both owners and contractors. As the number of participating employees increases, pre-employment or pre-access testing will be greatly reduced. Additionally, contractors will have a choice of who administers the NASAP for them. Third-Party Administrators (TPAs) will have to earn the business and perform to keep it.
