Ensuring Regulatory Compliance
The Health and Safety at Work Act 1974 places a legal duty on employers to ensure the health, safety, and welfare of their employees. This includes taking measures to prevent the misuse of drugs and alcohol that could impair an individual’s ability to work safely. By implementing a drug and alcohol screening program, organisations demonstrate their commitment to complying with the legislation and create a safer work environment for their employees.
Certain industries, such as transportation and construction, have additional legal requirements under the Road Traffic Act 1988 and Transport and Works Act 1992 to ensure that employees do not operate under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Implementing drug and alcohol screening helps mitigate these risks by identifying individuals who may be under the influence and ensuring they are not performing safety-critical roles.
Our screening tests can detect a wide range of drugs, including cannabis, cocaine, amphetamines, opioids, and benzodiazepines.
The turnaround time for our screening tests is usually 2-3 working days. However, in some cases, the results may take longer to process.
The frequency of drug and alcohol screening depends on a variety of factors, including the nature of your business and the level of risk involved. We can help you to determine the appropriate screening frequency for your organisation.
