Drug and alcohol screening - Jobfit

A statutory requirement in many industries, effective drug and alcohol screening improves workplace safety as the use of alcohol and recreational drugs can present a hazard in the workplace.

Jobfit aims to assist and support employers maintain a safe workplace by providing drug screening and alcohol screening in a sensitive and professional manner.

Our drug and alcohol screening services cover pre-employment, random or for cause, and extends to instant or laboratory dependent on your requirements. 

Jobfit offers the following drug and alcohol screening services tailored to specific requirements:

  • Urinary or oral fluid drug screening to Australian Standards AS/NZS 4308:2008
  • Australian Quality Training Framework (AQTF) certified urine and oral fluid collection
  • Gas chromatography–mass spectrometry (GCMS) confirmatory testing by a certified laboratory of non-negative instant results 

For instant drug screening, Jobfit generally uses a multi drug 6 Panel urine drug testing kit which tests for illicit drugs including:

  • Cannabis
  • Opiates
  • Methamphetamines
  • Amphetamines
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Cocaine

Alcohol testing is conducted using a hand-held alcohol breathalyser.

If random screening is carried out onsite, instant urine drug screening is the most common method used, as it is accurate and efficient.  Instant urine testing can offer results in 5 minutes, and will ensure that your employees are fit for daily duties, however they do not provide the same standard as a laboratory analysis as defined by the Australian Standards AS/NZS 4308:2008. The specimen will require confirmation by laboratory testing if a non-negative result is obtained.

Our health professionals are specially trained to perform authorised drug and alcohol screening, and can provide this service onsite at your workplace anywhere in Australia.
