Our drug and alcohol services, run by experienced and trained Occupational Health Advisers (OHA’s), can help you to comply with legislation and help identify if drug and alcohol abuse is affecting your company productivity.

Testing Types

Safewell offer the following types of drug and alcohol testing:

  • Pre-Employment (safety critical roles only—call to discuss)
  • Pre Assessment Testing (for new employees)
  • Random Testing (on suspicion or because of company policy
  • For Cause Testing (following an event)

Drug Testing can be Chain of Custody or dip stick (urinalysis). Chain of Custody testing will stand up in a court of law, so is the preferred testing method for cases likely to go to a tribunal or ‘For Cause Testing’ due to a specific work related incident.

Alcohol Testing is done by breath analysis.
