Preparing for Your Testing Appointment

Preparing for Your Testing Appointment

Everything you need to know.

We want your employment drug testing or occupational health testing appointment to go as smoothly as possible for you. While we’ll take care of most of that on our end, there are a few things you can do to prepare for the drug-testing process. Here’s what you need to know.

 For all drug testing procedures:

  • You’ll need to provide government-issued photo identification.
  • You’ll be tested by highly experienced, respectful professionals who fully understand the importance of getting accurate results.
  • Our staff are highly trained and follow standardized testing protocols – each individual that visits us is treated the same way and goes through the same processes.
  • It’s important to listen to the certified collector that’s conducting your test – failure to co-operate during the collection or testing process will result in a refusal to test.
  • We will do our very best to get your drug screening completed as quickly as possible.
  • As per company policy, children will not be allowed in the collection room, and will only be allowed in the waiting room if supervised by someone other than the donor or CannAmm staff.

How to prepare for a urine drug test:

  • Our standard urine drug test preparation will require you to remove your outer clothing, empty your pockets, and show the items. It’s best to bring as few extra items as possible to the specimen collection site.
  • Minutes before the test is conducted we will secure your personal items and any unacceptable items (e.g., knives, lighters) until we’re done.
  • You’ll be required to provide a freshly voided urine sample. It will be tested immediately, with the certified collector checking for:
    • Unexpected temperature
    • Unexpected volume
    • Unusual colour
    • Unusual odour
    • Presence of foreign objects or material
    • Tampering, adulteration, or substitution
  • Your sample will be medically reviewed and if any of the above are found, we will need you to provide a second urine sample or, possibly, undertake an observed collection.

 For occupational health tests such as medical exams:

  • You will be required to provide your medical history.

Our goal is to ensure that your experience is as pleasant as possible while meeting the strict requirements of employment drug testing and occupational health testing procedures and the protocols that go along with them. We thank you for your patience and understanding. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us.
