Post-Incident Testing

Post-Incident Testing


The information you need when determining cause.

Post-incident drug testing (also called post-accident testing) is done when an incident that cannot be explained through mechanical failure occurs in the workplace. By performing drug and alcohol testing as soon as possible after the incident, your company has important information to use as a tool when analyzing the causes of workplace incidents.

We have more than 4,000 collection sites across Canada and the U.S. and a dedicated after-hours/emergency testing line so we can swing into action as soon as you need us. A qualified Medical Review Officer (MRO) verifies all non-negative results and we are fully accountable to our results.

How Post-Accident Testing Works

  • Post-accident drug and alcohol testing should only be done when the employee’s actions or lack of actions have contributed to the cause of the incident.
  • If your manager or supervisor believes that post-incident drug testing is required, contact us immediately. We will arrange for testing as soon as possible at a collection site near you.
  • The employee should always be escorted to the collection facility by an accompanying supervisor.

Due to the time-sensitive nature of post-incident testing, please call us at 1.800.440.0023, option 3, to book a testing appointment.
