Drug & Alcohol testing options:

For cause

If there is a cause or reasonable suspicion that your employee is under the influence of drugs or alcohol while on duty or if an incident or accident happens, testing can be carried out as part of a consistent Drug & Alcohol testing programme.



When pre-employment screening is carried out as part of your employment process, this can help to reduce the risk of hiring individuals who may pose a risk to your workplace safety. Alongside the development of a robust policy, pre-employment testing can help to normalise testing in the workplace, right from the outset.


Random screening

As part of a company’s Drug & Alcohol policy a programme of random Drug & Alcohol testing demonstrates that you take seriously the impact that drugs and alcohol can have in the workplace. Substance use (prescribed and over the counter medication) and misuse (alcohol and illegal drugs) can be extremely damaging in the workplace when operating heavy machinery, driving or participating in any activity that might affect the public or where it may impact key decision making within, for example, professional services.


Robust substance misuse policy

Many substance misuse policies have a tendency to be overly long or do no address emerging trends. We can provide you with a robust, legally proven and defensible substance misuse policy designed to protect you and your business.

With the increased recognition of the link between problematic drug use and mental health, we will help you to navigate an increasingly complex legal landscape.
