Drug and Alcohol Testing

Drug and Alcohol Services

Alcohol and substance abuse at work, costs employers millions of pounds each year, through the loss of productivity, increased sickness absence and increased accidents.

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.

Referral and Counselling

Following the results, and where required, Safewell can arrange counselling and further referral to external agencies.
