Step 1: Requirements to Work at an MPC Refinery

Marathon Dickinson Pre-Access Testing - performed by DISA or OSCA.  Initial pre-access requires hair follicle, urinalysis, and breathalyzer testing.  Please be aware that it is up to your organization to follow up with DISA or OSCA to confirm results (Cost for drug screen is the responsibility of the company and will not be paid for by MPC).

Contractor Employee status will be checked when the access badge is requested.  An active (green) status allows for a badge to be issued.  An inactive (red) status will require the Contractor Company to contact DISA or OSCA for more information.  An access badge cannot be issued when there is an inactive (red) status.


Contract employees must pass a background security check from DISA.
