Drug and Alcohol Testing in the Workplace

Testing for non-permitted drugs and alcohol

Drug and Alcohol testing at work can not only help you look after the welfare of your staff and comply with your health and safety obligations, but it can also help improve your staff’s productivity too.

Our drug and alcohol testing can ensure your staff are fit and safe to work, reducing the risks to your business or staff from causing accidents or costly mistakes due to being under the influence of drugs or alcohol. Random drug and alcohol testing is an effective way to make sure that your employees are working in a safe environment as well as providing added protection for your business. Together with our Employment Law Solicitors and HR Consultants we can ensure you do it lawfully and help with any outcomes following a positive result.

How Loch Training & Wellbeing can help:

Loch Associates Group can support you and guide you through every step in the process. Our Medical Specialists can provide random testing on site, minimising disruption to your business and ensuring the accuracy of results. Carrying out random drug and alcohol testing reduces the potential for employees to use strategies to avoid testing.

Drug and alcohol testing does not always have to be used to reprimand someone. For example. If an employee has previously misused drugs or alcohol, post-rehabilitation testing can be used as part of their support plan to look after their wellbeing at work.

Types of testing we offer:

  • Pre-placement/employment
  • Post-accident
  • Reasonable suspicion
  • Random
  • Follow-up

Loch Training & Wellbeing can do everything from test to procedure, and the initial contractual obligations, to ensuring the appropriate actions are taken after a test has taken place.

Chambers and Partners

When I saw Bruce last year I was in a very bad place mentally. For me personally, he came into my life at the right time and if it wasn’t for him I really don’t know if I would be here today. He listened to me and made other people listen and changes were made for the better which helped me, as it improved my life for me. I am in a much better place now and happier in my work and it’s all thanks to Bruce.

Employee

Thanks for all your help. Very impressed with how you pressed the negotiations forward on Wednesday to allow us to reach a quick resolution.

App Developer

Thank you for the superb advice you have provided us with over the years.

Business Owner – Care Sector

This is one of the best courses I have been on. The content has been very relevant and practical which will help me in my role and also in my personal life. The instructors have been engaging; passing on their passion for this subject.

Training course feedback

I am highly appreciative of the advice and work I received from Joe Milner and the team at Loch Associates Group.

Joe assisted me with drafting complex supplier contracts and templates for my business and I cannot praise him enough. The work was thorough and Joe’s attention to detail showed he had taken time to really understand what was needed, suggesting ways to adapt them as necessary for our business.

All communications, including from the support team were clear and timely. It was interesting to hear they offer a retainer service, which means Joe can effectively work as the Company’s in-house counsel too, which is a useful service for a business of our size.

Thank you again!

Simon Adby, Nice Work

I was an attendee of the course and after talking to my colleagues who were there we have all said how eye-opening and informative it was. We found a more interactive approach was beneficial as we could relate and draw from our own experiences.

Training course feedback

The whole team is always incredibly responsive, and they work hard to ensure that the process is as smooth as possible.
