Course Details:

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 your Sentinel profile. We also offer a fast track service for a small fee. Please give us a call if you need a quicker turn-around. In some instances, it is possible to get same-day results.

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

Duration: Up to 45 mins
