3 Examples Where Alcohol And Drug Testing May Be Necessary

Tags : 

Alcohol and drug testing in Bedfordshire can provide valuable information for individuals and organisations. This article will outline some of the key reasons why collecting samples for examination may be helpful.

  1. Businesses and employment

Some businesses have random alcohol and drug screening to ensure employees are keeping in line with misuse policies. This is often particularly important in jobs where health and safety is a factor.

For example, organisations that have fleets of long-haul drivers may wish to test their staff regularly to ensure no one is getting behind the wheel while under the influence.

  1. Law enforcement agencies

UK courts often require convicted criminals to abstain from drinking alcohol and taking drugs as part of a leniency deal to avoid going to prison, especially when addiction is a primary factor in the case.

However, law enforcement agencies must be able to confirm that individuals are sticking to the terms of their sentence, which means regular alcohol and drug testing methods is often essential.

  1. Concerned friends and family

NHS figures indicate 6 per cent of men and 2 per cent of women in the UK are alcohol dependent. Figures in the Guardian showed that 13 per cent of people who had ever taken illegal drugs felt they had developed a problem.

Addiction can create a huge strain on families and friends, and people often seek external help to support loved ones who abuse alcohol or drugs. Encouraging an addict to attend regular testing could help them to stick to a rehabilitation programme.
