Workplace drugs and alcohol testing hits the small screen


How does Integrity Sampling conduct its workplace drug and alcohol testing? What do we do when someone produces a positive result?

For the answers to these questions and so much more, Integrity Sampling has produced a 22-minute video on workplace drugs and alcohol testing.

As well as provided brief information on Integrity Sampling and the services we provide, the video discusses:

  • The advantages of saliva drug testing.
  • The type of drug and alcohol testing we do, including pre-employment testing and random testing.
  • Why workplace drug and alcohol testing is so important.
  • Alcohol and drugs in the workplace and the impacts to business, including the cost to Australian businesses.
  • What industries are most affected by misuse of drugs and alcohol.
  • The 7 most asked questions about drugs and alcohol, including:
    • Why we recommend saliva drug testing rather than urine testing
    • What drugs we test for
    • How are tests conducted and how accurate is testing
    • What if I’m taking prescribed medications
    • What are the windows of detection
    • What happens when someone tests positive
    • What are the alcohol drinking guidelines

The video shows a typical drug test being conducted and the process that is followed when someone does record a positive drug test, otherwise known as ‘chain of custody’ testing.

The video is presented by Integrity Sampling Director Michael Wheeldon.
