In the event of a non-negative drug screen, KINNECT’s screener would ensure that all relevant forms are completed. The sample will then be sent to a NATA certified laboratory for confirmation testing. Once the laboratory has tested the sample, an outcome will be provided to your company’s representative. This confirmatory testing distinguishes between prescription medication and illegal substances. Read our handy article to find out more about confirmatory testing.

If a positive alcohol test is recorded the following process will be followed:

  1. The employee is requested to remain in the immediate vicinity and a second breath alcohol sample is undertaken after 20 minutes.
  2. The worker and their manager is immediately advised of the result.
  3. If the breath alcohol sample is still positive, an evidential breath screen is performed with a signed declaration
  4. The worker is then managed as per your company’s drug and alcohol policy

KINNECT have existing relationships with NATA accredited pathology laboratories throughout Australia. By having established agreements with these laboratories, we can guarantee a 24-48 hour turnaround for testing once the specimen is received. In addition, the laboratories offer an express service for confirmatory testing. This express service incurs an additional fee, however guarantees you results within 60 minutes of confirmatory testing.
