Therefore you can be assured that if any of your staff legally challenge the results, our procedure will not be questioned.

How long does it take to perform the testing?
The Onsite brand of drug testing products utilise quick wicking technology which means we get the results rapidly on-the-spot. The testing times below include completion of all paperwork and performing the drug screening test.
Onsite oral testing takes an average of 7.5 minutes per person
Onsite urine testing takes an average of 10 minutes per person

How often should we perform testing on our staff?
The aim of drug and alcohol screening in a workplace is to minimise/eliminate the presence of drugs and alcohol in the work environment. We recommend testing 25-50% of all staff in the initial 3-6 months. You will then be able to guage the level of drug and alcohol use present in the workplace and work out a testing schedule to suit.
The aim is to eventually eliminate drug and alcohol use and provide a safe, drug-free working environment for all employees.
