May 9, 2012: ABC and FirstLab Launch New Partnership

May 9, 2012
WASHINGTON — Associated Builders and Contractors (ABC) and First Hospital Laboratories (FirstLab) have launched a new partnership that will provide ABC members with resources for performing and managing their company’s alcohol and drug screening, background investigations, and occupational health needs, such as maintaining their employees’ certifications for physicals.

“We are excited to be working with FirstLab on these vital management services that will provide tremendous value to our member firms,” said Michael D. Bellaman, ABC president and CEO. “It is critical that every construction firm hire the right people and ensure employee and jobsite safety. FirstLab’s comprehensive suite of screening programs and occupational health services offers solutions that will help contractors meet these needs and help create a safer work environment.”

“FirstLab is excited to enter into this new partnership with Associated Builders and Contractors,” said Scott A. Storrer, FirstLab president and CEO. “ABC is an outstanding association, and one we’re proud to do business with. Ensuring safety, security, and peace of mind for our customers has been our goal as a company from day one. We’ve met this goal every day for the past 23 years, and will bring this same focus to ABC. Helping protect employees and jobsites is FirstLab’s duty and pleasure.”

FirstLab is the largest privately held, third-party administrator of alcohol- and drug-testing services in the U.S. and has more than 13,000 sites across the country. Under the new partnership, ABC members are entitled to a discount on the services offered by FirstLab without setup, monthly, or annual fees.
