How often should you perform testing on our staff?

The aims of drug and alcohol screening in a workplace is to minimise/eliminate the presence of drugs and alcohol in the work environment.

Hence, we recommend testing 30-50% of all staff in the initial 3-6 months. You will then be able to gauge the level of drug and alcohol use present in the workplace and devise a testing schedule to suit.

The aim is to eventually eliminate drug and alcohol use in the workplace to provide a safe, drug-free working environment for all employees.
