Our workplace alcohol tests meet US Dot and non-Dot requirements.
We conduct alcohol testing using two methods: breath alcohol using a breathalyzer, and saliva alcohol using an oral swab.
For workplace alcohol tests we offer 24-hour on-call, on-site testing services.
Breath Alcohol Testing
A breath alcohol test at our facility is similar to a breathalyzer test the police would administer. We use the Phoenix 6 breath alcohol machine, which measures the content of alcohol in a person’s system from a breath sample. The test subject simply takes a deep breath and then blows into the machine until their lungs are empty.
Urine Alcohol Testing
Urine alcohol tests are used to detect alcohol ingestion, mainly within the past week, or longer with regular drinking. While the tests indicate the presence of alcohol in a person's system, a positive urine test does not necessarily mean the person was under the influence of alcohol at the time the test was administered. A urine alcohol test detects the use of alcohol within a 24-hour period, or for up to 80 hours beforehand.
Saliva Alcohol Testing
Saliva alcohol testing is a rapid, highly sensitive method to detect the presence of alcohol and to provide a semi-quantitative approximation of blood alcohol concentration. Saliva alcohol testing analyzes saliva collected with a swab. The test subject places a collection swab in their mouth until it is fully saturated with saliva, and then places the swab in the test analyzer. If the test is administered correctly the analyzer results are ready in 2 – 5 minutes. Saliva alcohol testing can generally detect alcohol consumption within 24 hours.
Workplace Drug Testing
Our workplace drug tests are quick, non-invasive and methodically accurate.
There are three types of regular workplace drug tests.
The first, a point of collection urine test offers instant results. We use 5 to 10-panel instant tests, depending on the nature and number of substances being tested for.
The second is a lab-based drug test. The urine sample is divided into two containers and sent to a lab for testing. Results are generally available within 24 – 48 hours.
The third is an oral drug test using a saliva sample. This oral test can be administered as either a Point of Site test or at a lab. It is a practical drug test option for workplaces where there are no securable washroom facilities available.
All non-negative test results are reviewed and confirmed by a Medical Review Officer.
We follow defined procedure to the letter.
All US Department of Transport (DOT) urine tests are sent to a lab for testing in accordance with 49 CFR Part 40 procedures.
