Workplace alcohol testing services

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. It may begin to clarify why certain staff members take unexplained time off work.

Did you know that alcohol misuse at work can:

  • reduce productivity
  • increase 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.

Why wait for your laboratory confirmations?

We understand how important a workplace alcohol testing policy is to the employees, the business and all stakeholders involved. However, we also understand the disruption that can be caused if key personnel provide a positive sample.

AlphaBiolabs is here to help. That’s why we have developed a rapid testing service to provide laboratory confirmation results the next working day, if required.

Workplace alcohol test sample collection

AlphaBiolabs has a dedicated, fully qualified sample collection team available around the clock, every day of the year. This is ideal if you require sample collection as part of a scheduled workplace alcohol test, at short notice for random alcohol testing or ‘for cause’ testing.

Our workplace sample collectors follow strict procedures to ensure the chain of custody is retained and that confidentiality remains throughout the whole testing process. This means that our workplace alcohol testing results are legally defensible. This is particularly important if the person being tested is likely to take legal action to contest the results of the alcohol test for any reason.

AlphaBiolabs can also train a representative of your own staff to perform workplace alcohol testing and sample collection to the highest standards. This means that they will also be able to collect samples for workplace alcohol testing and retain the chain of custody. Competency training is also available for those who are already trained in sample collection to ensure that these standards are adhered to by your chosen representative.

Breath alcohol testing

The person being tested for alcohol use blows into a breath alcohol device, and the results are given as a digital readout.

The readout is a number, known as the breath alcohol concentration (BAC), which shows the level of alcohol in the breath at the time the test was taken. It does not measure past use of alcohol.

We have a number of devices we can use for breath alcohol testing dependent on your individual needs.

We contacted AlphaBiolabs because we were looking to formalise our workplace drug and alcohol testing policy and procedures, and we have found them to be professional, efficient and reliable from the outset. Not only did they support us in creating a robust substance misuse policy, but they also provided excellent in-depth training, meaning we can now confidently conduct our own drug and alcohol testing on-site. I’d be happy to recommend AlphaBiolabs’ services to others.
