Course Details:

For Cause contracts provide those who work on Network Rail Maintained Infrastructure with the required services needed to ensure safety across their worksites. The For Cause Service ensures that a fully qualified Collection Officer can be onsite within two hours of initiation to undertake full Network Rail approved Drugs of Abuse testing. 

For the Network Rail Drug and Alcohol Screening, individuals need to provide a urine sample for analysis. The sample is sent to our RISQS approved UKAS Accredited Laboratory for testing. The laboratory tests the sample for traces of banned substances (see below for detail).

Results can take up to 3 days to come through, and longer if there are any contraindications. Positive samples will lead to a 5-year suspension, notified on an individual's Sentinel profile. 

Alcohol is assessed using an intoximeter (breath test), and results are immediate.

Duration: 365 days
