Morristown, N.J. — ProSight Specialty® Insurance announced a new offering today that raises the bar on safety standards in the transportation industry by offering an enhanced drug test that goes beyond standard DOT-compliant testing to identify the riskiest drivers that typically go undetected.

With the goal of delivering forward-thinking solutions to transportation companies, ProSight partnered with Foley Carrier Services, a prominent transportation compliance firm.  They created ProSight’s Drug Testing Program, powered by Foley.  This program includes a robust drug testing package to help identify drivers and machine operators utilizing drugs not monitored in a typical Department of Transportation drug test.

Undetected drug use clearly impacts customers’ bottom line by increasing the costs they incur to replace drug-impaired drivers. Statistics show that the current DOT-compliant drug screen panel does not include many contemporary drugs that, if included in a drug screen, may provide a more complete profile of driver substance use.  The standard test fails to detect a wide range of drugs that can lead to accidents and undesirable behavior among drivers.  Inadequate testing is an acknowledged problem in the industry, and ProSight is committed to changing that.

“ProSight is fully committed to working with industry experts to solve problems that affect our transportation customers,” says Jeremy Zottneck, President for Transportation Niche at ProSight. “We’re very excited to partner with Foley to offer an enhanced drug test that will help customers boost their productivity, reduce driver churn, decrease dangerous incidents and improve overall ROI.”

ProSight’s Drug Testing Program powered by Foley includes three options, all offered to ProSight policyholders at a discount off of retail pricing:

1.      Enhanced Drug Testing package

  • An enhanced 10-panel drug test that uncovers risky pharmaceutical drugs that account for 30 percent of post-accident positive tests and is 2-3 times more likely to return a positive result
  • Nationwide network of 9,000 testing centers
  • Faster than average results when compared to industry standards

2.      Driver File Management package

Includes the Enhanced Drug Testing package above, plus:

  • Maintenance of all DOT driver files in audit ready format
  • Tracking motor vehicle records
  • Storing cognitive/medical assessments
  • Handling background checks

3.      Basic DOT testing package

  • Includes the standard DOT-compliance test conveniently administered by Foley

ProSight Specialty Insurance and Foley Carrier Services are both committed to providing solutions that meet the risk concerns of today’s transportation industry professionals.
