What is the role of the TPAs when drug testing with NASAP?

TPAs will administer the NASAP for participating employees of their contractor clients. Administration includes notification of required tests, specimen collections & testing, database management, medical reviews, referrals to substance abuse professionals for rehabilitation and maintaining status information for employees.

Additionally, TPAs train appropriate contractor employees that will be involved in administering the substance abuse program.

TPAs will report employee statuses to the Houston Area Safety Council and will coordinate with other TPAs as employees transfer to other employers.
