Workplace drug testing

ESR’s workplace drug and alcohol testing detects certain drugs, or their metabolites, in urine samples.

Everyone has the right to go home safely after a day's work. Our testing may indicate that an employee’s ability to carry out their duties safely is compromised, presenting a danger not only to the employee but also potentially to work colleagues and the public.

We can work with clients from any sector or organisation to test for drugs that impair performance including alcohol, illicit drugs and certain legal drugs.

Man operating chainsaw

Not only can a comprehensive programme help employers to meet their statutory obligation to take all practicable steps to ensure the safety of employees while at work, it can also help reduce staff turnover, increase productivity and improve a company’s reputation by supporting better customer service.

Our procedures are accredited by International Accreditation New Zealand to AS/NZS 4308:2008 ‘Procedures for specimen collection and the detection and quantitation of drugs of abuse in urine’.
