What is a drug and alcohol testing policy?

This is a corporate formal document that defines the company’s stance in relation to drugs and alcohol.

It provides clear and concise instructions for the employer and employee. It provides formal information on what is non-compliance of policy, details of how substance abuse issues will be handled and provides a procedure so that employees with a problem can seek assistance.

It is important for managers and staff to know how your organisation will deal with drug and alcohol-related issues

Benefits of a drug and alcohol testing policy

A drug and alcohol testing policy can have a positive impact on the workplace and can provide various benefits to the business including:

The Company shareholders:

  • Maintain the reputation and integrity of the business
  • Reduce costs associated with sickness and staff turnover
  • Reduce workplace incidents (and less claims being made against the business)
  • Maintain safety for staff and public
  • Ensure the business is operating lawfully


  • Increase productivity of workforce
  • Make risk assessments more comprehensive
  • Improve health and safety precautions
  • Reduce workplace incidents
  • Reduce theft
  • Reduce staff turnover and need for recruitment


  • Understand the company standards in relation to substance misuse
  • Provide information on what the policy implementation means for them (less chance of disputing the testing)
  • Less chance of being hurt in a workplace incident
  • Provide proof of innocence when they have been accused of substance abuse
  • Reduce pressure to take or sell drugs that may otherwise be encouraged by other employees
  • Reduce health issues associated with drug and alcohol misuse

Workplace test sample collection

We have a dedicated, fully qualified sample collection team available every day of the year.

Chain of custody procedures are followed to ensure that confidentiality remains throughout the whole testing process.

Chain of custody also means that our workplace drug and alcohol testing results are legally defensible. This is particularly imperative if the person being tested is likely to take legal action to contest the results of the test.

We can also train a representative of your own staff to perform workplace drug and alcohol testing and sample collection to the highest standards. Competency training is also available for members of your staff already trained in sample collection.

More details on our workplace drug and alcohol testing methods can be found on our Workplace Drug Testing and Workplace Alcohol Testing pages. Alternatively, call us now on 0140 29466 and speak to one of our Workplace advisors.
