drug & alcohol testing

We can provide drug and alcohol testing services and provide best practice policy advice in the implementation of delivery of such services ensuring these are legally defensible.

Drug testing using fresh, validated urine samples includes, firstly, the use of a screening test which is used to identify negative results which applies to the vast majority of samples taken. Positive or non-negative screening results will then require a more detailed confirmation test which will be carried out at a validated laboratory as the ‘gold standard’ in drug testing. All positive test results will be reviewed by our Medical Review Officer before the result is disclosed, in keeping with current best practice.

Testing can include pre-employment, random, with cause and periodic. We utilise urine testing for all drug testing.
