Occupational Specialists identify if prescription drugs or faulty testing procedures have influenced the result of a worker’s drug and alcohol test. Using specialised knowledge of the use of prescription drugs, the pharmacology and toxicology of illicit drugs and testing procedures, our Occupational Specialist will determine if the worker can safely return to work without risk to themselves or others.
Specimens that were non-negative on first testing are forwarded for laboratory confirmatory testing and results are forwarded to MRO. MRO determines whether drug results are positive or negative i.e. consistent with declared drug usage.
- If ‘negative’; MRO writes final report and case is closed, you have this report for the file.
- If ‘positive’; MRO writes final report – sends to company. Company to manage worker as per their drug and alcohol policy. All records are kept for your HR filing system.
MRO’s can provide valuable advice in the development of a quality drug and alcohol policy. Please contact us for a proposal if you wish to take advantage of this beneficial consultancy.
