Implementation of an effective substance misuse policy establishes employer rights to conduct workplace drug and alcohol testing if required. In addition, it ensures adherence to the duty of care of an employer to protect their workforce and keep employees safe.

Types of Testing

  • Pre-Employment Testing

This is used as an indicator of candidate suitability, it forms an essential part of a company’s recruitment process, and helps maintain the safety of the firm’s current workforce.


  • Random Testing

With knowledge that a test could be conducted with anyone at any time, random testing is the most effective deterrent of drug or alcohol misuse among employees. It ensures integrity of staff across all levels and can be conducted with employees at any level from temporary staff to directors.


  • With-Cause Testing

This is conducted when there is suspected drug or alcohol abuse in the workplace, whether allegations are made, suspicion arises, if drugs and alcohol have been found in work or following an accident.


  • Post-Incident Testing

Post-Incident testing occurs after an accident or incident in work to determine if drugs or alcohol may have contributed to the cause.


  • Abstinence Testing

The process of this testing is conducted in circumstances where an employee, having tested positive for a previous drug or alcohol test is monitored to ensure they remain abstinent from drug or alcohol misuse.

We provide comprehensive training and education to help you communicate the new policy to your employees and management staff.


  1. Sample Collection

Once consent from employees is given our network of trained and experienced sample collection officers collect samples using your chosen method of testing at a time and location that suits. We also offer training and education to your own staff to collect samples from employees. Throughout sample collection, sample integrity is maintained following strict chain of custody criteria.


  1. Sample Analysis

Employee samples are transported to our state-of-the-art laboratory. Upon arrival, they are assessed to ensure sample integrity has been maintained, they are then screened using our innovative Biochip Array Technology to ensure accurate and reliable results. Upon analysis of employee samples, required actions will differ depending on the result:

  • Negative
  • Presumptive Positive (Indicates presence of a particular substance. Further analysis required).
  • Confirmatory Testing (Carried out on presumptive positive samples to confirm drug class and concentration).
  • Positive (Received after confirmatory testing, a report detailing drugs present and at what concentration will be written).

Results are reported confidentially via our secure web portal. Alternatively, another method can be chosen to suit your needs.
