Unannounced testing for the industry

Choose us for your unannounced drugs and alcohol screening requirements. We can fully manage the service and ensure that you don't fall short with Network Rail's mandate on unannounced Drugs and Alcohol testing on 5% of your primary sponsored staff.

A negative result is usually avaliable the next working day and uploaded to sentinel. Our collection officers are trained to follow a rigorous chain of custody process. Ensuring that from the second the urine is voided from the body to the sample being packaged, both your employee and the collection officer are happy that the sample hasn't been aludered and the sample, that's tamper evident sealed, is your employee's urine

An evidential breath specimin is also collected by a Home Office type approved device.

Our solution

We have natiowide capability to test your staff on site, at your office or, whilst attending one of our training courses.

Our service offers you the option for us to randomly select your staff to be tested. This is the preffered option with Trade Unions, as the risk of an employee claining they have been unfairly or biasly chosen is greatly reduced.

Booking an unnanounced Drugs and Alcohol test whilst your employee is on one of our training courses is an ideal way to keep the process truely unnanounced.

All results will be uploaded to the sentinel system.
