Breath Alcohol Testing

Alcohol Testing

The testing for alcohol in the workplace is usually tackled by either breath or urine analysis. Alcohol is a volatile substance and hence is well suited to measurement in breath. One major advantage of breath alcohol analysis is the instant availability of a good quality alcohol result. In a workplace situation, this can be very valuable and means that a manager can take an immediate well-informed decision on how best to proceed in a given situation e.g. to prevent an employee undertaking a safety sensitive job following a breath alcohol result.

Evidential Alcohol Testing

Racoo Screening is able to provide a result using a Department for Transport approved, calibrated and evidential grade breath alcohol test instrument, the result of which would be admissible in court. The instrument has several built in functions; it performs an automatic accuracy check, ensures the subject provides a satisfactory ‘deep lung air’ breath sample and connects to a printer to confirm test results. Alternatively, a breath alcohol result can be followed up with a urine collection for laboratory analysis.

Alcohol Testing Collection
