Urine Drug Testing

Drug abuse in the workplace can cause issues for employers due to more on-the- job accidents, increased absenteeism and lower productivity. Urine testing supports the company’s drug and alcohol policy and helps to alleviate these risks by screening out applicants and employees who use drugs.

We offer a cost-effective pre-employment, random, for-cause and post-incident testing service, with experienced collectors on call 24 hours per day, 365 days per year to support your needs.

Urine drug testing detects recent drug use -typically in the previous one to three days but drugs such as cannabis can be detected for longer periods of time.

On Site and Laboratory Urine Drug Testing

We can offer on-site testing using our drug testing kits, either by our trained collectors or we can train your company representatives to collect the samples themselves.

If the testing is negative, the employee is free to return to work. However, if the on-site testing is non-negative, a laboratory confirmation is required. We understand the disruption that can be caused if key personnel provide a non-negative sample and so we have developed a rapid same day confirmation service if required. We can also offer a next day or a three-day confirmation service if this suits your needs – each service is legally defensible as robust, confidential, chain of custody conditions are adhered to at all times.

The samples are transported to our ISO17025* accredited laboratory where our highly trained and experienced laboratory staff will use state-of-the-art equipment to analyse your samples and provide the results in a time scale to suit your needs.

We also offer a laboratory screening and confirmation service where the urine samples are collected in the workplace under strict chain of custody conditions either by our trained collectors or we can train your company representatives to collect the samples themselves. The collection kits are secure and barcoded and once collected, the samples are transported to our ISO17025* accredited laboratory where our highly trained and experienced laboratory staff will use state of the art equipment to analyse your samples and provide the results in a time scale to suit your needs.

A Toxicological assessment, including medical review if required, can help to determine the origin of the drugs and whether they are over- the- counter or prescribed medication. Expert witness testimony for court purposes and tribunals can also be provided.
