Video: Simpler drug testing for construction firms

Intelligent Fingerprinting is bringing new levels of convenience, hygiene and speed to employee drug testing in the construction industry with its simple, end-to-end drug testing solution based on fingerprint sweat analysis.

Unlike traditional drug tests which can be invasive, time-consuming and undignified for testers and employees, the portable Intelligent Fingerprinting drug testing solution is quick and easy to deploy wherever it is needed across a construction business. It supports all forms of employee drug testing including pre-employment screening as well as random, for-cause and post-incident testing, whether in the office or on construction sites. The new end-to-end system features an initial screening test that works by analysing sweat from fingerprints to determine if an employee has recently used cocaine, opiates, methamphetamine or cannabis.

Sample collection takes seconds, with simultaneous screening results for all four drug groups provided in just ten minutes. Should an employee or contractor’s drug screen test positive – in contravention of a construction firm’s existing Health & Safety or drug misuse policy – the tester would then use Intelligent Fingerprinting’s Fingerprint Collection Kit for Laboratory Analysis to collect samples for a confirmation test. The kit for the laboratory confirmation service also includes everything required to securely send the collected samples to the testing laboratory including a tamper-evident security bag, barcodes to maintain anonymous sample identity and a postage-paid returns envelope.
