The new Lion AlcoBlowRapidTest from ALCO-Safe is the ideal solution when dealing with intoxicatedemployees. It delivers a fast, accurate ‘pass or fail’ result using only a tiny sample of breath, without the need for physical contact between the subject and the instrument. It can also be used in both Active and Passive modes to ensure all employees can be tested quickly and efficiently, and that suspicious liquids can be checked for the presence of alcohol.
These instrumentis particularly important in industries such as mining, manufacturing and construction where workers are dealing with dangerous chemicals, heavy machinery or equipment that requires a high level of concentration.
According to Rhys Evans of ALCO-Safe there will be a huge rise in the number of companies conducting regular alcohol testing and random drug testing in future. The use of disposable drug tests as well as on site breathalysers is on the increase as people see the cost benefit of reducing accidents and absenteeism.
