We know how critical it is for your business to see the results of the drug tests quickly in order to resolve issues and help you advance your objective of a drug-safe workplace.
Drug-safe Australia commits to a quick turnaround of both drug test analysis and reporting. The testing conducted in the mobile units will initially detect substances in the urine or saliva samples using set cutoff levels. A cutoff level is the concentration of a substance required to yield a positive result. Samples with a drug or metabolite concentration equal or greater than the cutoff level are reported non-negative or requiring further testing, if they’re lower than the cutoff level, they are reported negative.
Any initial positive tests are then forwarded to our accredited partner laboratories for confirmation testing. These confirmation tests have lower cutoff levels, and therefore have greater ability to detect the targeted substances. This ensures that false positives are detected and will not cause the affected employee unnecessary inconvenience when reported.
Fast 24-hour turnaround of confirmation drug tests
Our service guarantees a 24 hour or less turnaround of confirmation drug tests in our nationwide network of labs. This saves our clients time and money, and employees are able to return to work sooner where a false positive has been detected.
Depending on the drug policy in place, the results can be reviewed by a Medical Review Officer (MRO) before being forwarded to the company. An MRO will examine the results to determine if there are valid medical explanations for the positive test results. This gives the employee an opportunity to discuss his test results and give a legitimate medical explanation, if there is any.
The drug test analysis and reporting will then be delivered to you as soon as possible with the utmost confidentiality.
