Workplace Drug Testing

Implementing a successful drug testing policy will not only increase productivity, decrease costs and maintain the reputation of the company, but it will also mean that your business is operating lawfully to ensure the safety of your employee’s and the general public under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971 (among others).

With the increased availability of drugs, it can lead to critical staffing problems for your business or even legal action. A recent survey showed that 9% of full-time workers have a substance misuse problem.

Random drug and alcohol testing

Random drug and alcohol Testing is one of the best ways to ensure that your employees are working in a safe environment.

Random testing can be utilised to protect employees, as well as the business and choosing the right service provider can save your business thousands of pounds in lost revenue and help safeguard the health and safety measures.

With a random drug and alcohol testing policy in place it will be clear to employees that random drug and alcohol testing can be undertaken, but the testing can be conducted with short or no notice and exactly who is to be tested may be unknown by the workforce.

Workplace Alcohol Testing

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

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.

For Cause Drug & Alcohol Testing

For cause, testing may be used as part of a drug & alcohol policy when there are reasonable grounds to suspect that there is a misuse of drugs or alcohol in the workplace. This form of testing is sometimes also referred to as with-cause testing.

Employers are legally obliged to take measures to protect the safety of employees concerned, members of staff and the general public if they are suspicious that individuals may be unfit to work due to drugs or alcohol misuse (Misuse of Drugs Act 1971).

Pre Employment Testing Services

Pre-employment testing for drugs and alcohol is increasingly common in the workplace and is particularly important during the recruitment process to ensure the future safety of the company and its employees.

Pre-employment drug and alcohol testing is especially important for safety critical positions, where accidents can occur due to lack of concentration or intoxication can cause major accidents or Health and Safety breaches.

Post Rehab & Return to Work Testing

Post rehabilitation drug and alcohol testing can be used to check if employees are misusing drugs or alcohol after a previous confirmed positive drug or alcohol test.

Drug and alcohol testing does not always have to be used as means only to reprimand someone, if an employee has previously misused drugs or alcohol, post rehabilitation testing can be used as part of their support plan and give them a second chance.

Drug & Alcohol Testing Policy

We understand that no two businesses will have exactly the same drug and alcohol policy requirements, so we provide bespoke solutions to ensure that you can safeguard your business and its employees with confidence.

Using AlphaBiolabs to fully manage or provide advice regarding your drug and alcohol policy in conjunction with your health and safety policy means that you can be assured that your drug and alcohol policy is independent and impartial.

Drug and Alcohol Testing Awareness Training

If you have a Drug and Alcohol policy or are thinking of implementing one, then it is important to raise awareness and educate staff including informing them of both the company’s obligations and their individual responsibilities concerning drugs and alcohol within the workplace.

A crucial step during a Drug & Alcohol policy implementation is to educate those among the workforce to combat misuse in the workplace. With AlphaBiolabs this training can be customised for the industry sector and designed to be relevant for employees at all levels within the business.

Alisha M.

HR Manager, ABC Construction

Introducing a Drug and Alcohol Random Test policy at our business, we thought, would be fraught with difficulties. However the professional assistance and advice we received made the task very simple. Once introduced our next concern was staff reaction to the actual test day. This went without a hitch and most staff did not know it had even occurred. The staff that were called for samples commented on how simple the process was and how nice the tester was.
