Drug and Alcohol Screening

Drug and Alcohol screening can be completed during a pre-employment medical, at random or for cause. 

We offer both Instant and Laboratory screening services. An instant drug and alcohol screen gives immediate results and lasts up to 7 days; a laboratory drug and alcohol screen results can take from 48 hours to 7 days to come back, but lasts up to 30 days. This is dependent on the quality and result of the specimen.

Instant and Laboratory drug and alcohol screening ensure the Australian Standards AS/NZS 4308:2008 are used. If a screening fails a Gas Chromatography–Mass Spectrometry (GCMS) confirmatory testing by a certified laboratory of non-negative instant results is undertaken.

For instant drug screening, we use a multi drug 6 Panel urine drug testing kit which tests for illicit drugs including:

- Cannabis
- Opiates
- Methamphetamines
- Amphetamines
- Benzodiazepines
- Cocaine

All alcohol testing is conducted using a hand-held alcohol breathalyser, compliant with accrediation standards.
