Blood and Urinalysis Testing

Blood and Urinalysis Testing

Exposure to certain workplace hazards and chemicals can only be detected through urinalysis (urine testing) and blood screening. Typical workplace hazards include (plus a common use):

  • Drugs and Alcohol (see separate tab)
  • Isocyanates (in paints and adhesives)
  • Lead (metal plating and etching)
  • Nickel (metal plating and etching)
  • MbOCA (used in moulded polyurethane articles)

Completing urinalysis and blood screening for traces of hazardous substances enables you to determine if your risk control measures are adequate or if employees are being exposed, and it might be affecting their health. This health surveillance also assists you with compliance to the Control of Substances Hazardous to Health Regulations (COSHH).

Completing Urinalysis and blood screening can be a stand-alone test for your employees or (more commonly) these can be part of a health surveillance program. Urinalysis involves providing a sample and blood screening requires one of our trained Occupational Health Team taking a blood sample and submitting it for laboratory analysis.

Where can Urinalysis and Blood Screening be Carried Out

As with most of our services, these can be at your workplace or our offices in Wootton Bassett. If it’s only a handful of people or individuals then our office works well otherwise it makes sense to arrange at your workplace.
