Expanding Job Opportunities for Ironworkers and their Contractors

First developed in 2005, the IMPACT Drug Free Workforce Program has been revised and is up and running.

The goal of the IMPACT Program is to ensure ironworkers are drug-free and ready to work, and to make IMPACT member contractors more competitive in our industry.

IMPACT's Drug Free Workforce program:

  • Creates a national pool of safe, drug-free ironworkers
  • Offers a strong random test component
  • Allows for instant and laboratory testing
  • Encourages and provides training for Reasonable Suspicion
  • Accepts Owner Controlled Programs to eliminate repetitive testing
  • Provides member rehabilitation
  • Allows contractors to incorporate the IMPACT program for contractor employees
  • Includes comprehensive contractor training
  • Uses a state-of-the-art and secured database to verify a participant's status 24 hours a day
  • Saves YOU money and ensures a safe, quality workforce

The IMPACT Program works with pre-qualified third party administrators to manage the overall process of the Program, ensuring testing compliance by state, administering the random selection process, and ensuring a large network of collection sites and collector quality control.
