Include
Drug and Alcohol use and misuse at work has
significant safety threats to a company's
employees, customers and reputation.They are
notoriously difficult to manage once it becomes
evident or are implied unless companies have
strategies in place from the outset.The use of
illicit and prescription drug use within work
places is rising.This is causing concern amongst
the business community and government
departments. Organisations which have business
critical and safety critical roles need to have
a variety of strategies in place to manage these
risks.One such effective strategy is to have an

The Benefits Of Workplace Drug And Alcohol
Testing Include
  • Establishes a clear, ongoing and ambiguous
    company message that substance misuse is
    unacceptable
  • Acts as a deterrent against substance misuse at
    work
  • Acts to ensure employees confirm their
    prescription medications can be safely used
    whilst at work

    of substance misuse at work

    sick leave relates to substance misuse

    against accusations of substance misuse in
    relation to safely critical work and incidents

Independent testing and Independent review of
results
We offer the ability to test for substances as
part of a drug and alcohol policy / programme
independent to the organisation thereby removing
the implication of The results of any Drug and or
Alcohol test should be reviewed by a MRO (
Medical Review Officer) to check to see if there
is another reasonable explanation for the
results. We offer this service in conjunction
with or separate to our testing
capabilities. More information about the MRO
review process can be accessed here

Testing When testing is needed
Testing can be done rapidly on site via POCT (
Point of Care Testing) and sent for
verification at approved laboratories without
delays Testing as part of your HR Drug and
Alcohol process is usually done for the
following scenarios 1) Pre-employment - To ensure
steps are taken in not hiring those taking ,
using, abusing illicit or psychoactive
substances 2) Post Incident/ accident - To see
whether psychoactive substances were involved in
an incident/ accident 3) On suspicion of
substance use/misuse- To answer whether someones
change in behaviour, aggression or the smell of
alcohol in their breath related to psychoactive
substance use. 4) Randomly- To ensure compliance
to the Drug and Alcohol policy and to act as a
deterrent against illicit use. 5) Return to
work/ Post rehabilitation- To ensure employees
maintain their abstinence after returning to work.
