Workplace Alcohol Testing

Workplace alcohol testing acts as a deterrent to discourage alcohol abuse in the workplace.

By performing a random workplace alcohol testing screen, it is possible to identify alcohol abusers before an accident occurs and sanction the necessary treatment.

If that particular staff member has taken unexplained time off work it may begin to explain why that has happened.

Did you know that alcohol misuse at work can:

  • Reduce productivity
  • Increases sickness and absenteeism
  • Damage the reputation of the business
  • Put employees and members of the public in unnecessary danger

Implementing a workplace alcohol testing programme is a powerful method proven to deter misuse of alcohol in the workplace. AlphaBiolabs can help you to create a bespoke workplace alcohol testing programme for your business and implement this policy for a fully managed solution.

Various types of test to detect alcohol abuse

Urine and Breath Workplace Alcohol Testing

Workplace alcohol testing sample collectorsMany companies use a calibrated breathalyser to test that their employees are not under the influence of alcohol at work. The breathalyser equipment is very expensive so for most companies it makes financial sense for our trained staff to undertake the testing at your workplace.
