Why test for drugs and alcohol?

With approximately 80% of maritime accidents caused by human error, the implications for a mariner who consumes alcohol or drugs are greater than for those who do not. It’s not just their safety they are putting at risk, but everybody on board.

Statistics show that a mariner with a blood alcohol concentration above 0.10% is estimated to be 10 times more likely to die in a accident than someone with zero blood alcohol concentration.

No matter the size of your Maritime company we have a drug and alcohol testing programme for your needs.
