How often should employees in the renewable energy sector be tested? The frequency of drug and alcohol testing for UK employees in the renewable energy sector is not universally mandated and can vary based on company policy, industry standards, and specific job roles. However, given the high-risk nature of many tasks in the renewable energy sector, regular testing is advisable. Common practices include: Pre-employment Screening: Before an employee starts their role. Random Testing: Conducted without prior notice to ensure a drug-free workplace. Post-accident Testing: After any workplace incidents to determine if drugs or alcohol were a factor. Periodic Testing: At regular intervals, such as annually or bi-annually. For-cause Testing: When there’s reasonable suspicion of drug or alcohol use. By Rowan Poole|2023-10-09T15:26:50+01:0009/10/2023|Renewable|0 Comments Share This Story, Choose Your Platform!
