What is Drug and Alcohol Testing?
Drug and alcohol testing can identify alcohol, illegal drugs and prescription drugs in the body. Employers may choose to test for one or all of these substances, depending on your company policy.
If you’re looking for d&a testing for your UK business, Response Occupational Health delivers two different types of workplace alcohol and drug tests. We offer onsite sample collection for both types of tests.
Our highly sensitive tests give immediate, accurate results. We use reliable urine drug test kits that can check for 13 different illicit drugs, and Home Office-approved breathalysers to measure blood alcohol content, which are able to identify recent or excessive alcohol consumption.
Instant tests return either a negative or positive result. If the result is positive then the test sample will be sent on to our accredited laboratory for further analysis. Our lab report is legally defensible and court-admissible if needed.
Standalone lab analysis can be used instead of an instant result if you request it.
The timescale for standalone laboratory results will be longer and come at an additional cost. Please contact our team if you would like help deciding whether instant testing or laboratory analysis is the right test type for your workforce.
