Saliva Drug Test Detection Times

Saliva drug test detection times are shorter than the  comparable urine drug test detection times. They vary considerably depending on which brand of saliva drug testing kit you are using. Both the sensitivity and selectivity vary, and make a big difference to the detectable drug period. As saliva drug tests have not been developed to the same international level of cut offs, it is not always possible to compare the results of 2 different brands of saliva drug testing kits, done on the same sample, and it is worth always sticking with the same brand for a comparable series of tests. As a rough guide expect most drugs to be detectable for 48 to 72 hours after use when using a saliva drug test kit, but it is worth noting the THC Cannabis detection times for various products

Random drug testing at work

Random drug and alcohol testing at work keeps employees safe, reduces risks and insurance costs to business’s.

Workplace drug testing is standard practice in many industries operating in safety critical environments. Random drug testing is a key element of any workplace drug testing program and needs to be operated fairly and efficiently for both employees and the employer to gain the maximum benefit. explaining the benefits to employees is a key element of any drug and alcohol testing program. Employees need to be made aware of the benefits of a safe and drug free environment of work. Extending this to non safety critical employment roles may not be critical to the safe delivery of service, but can lead to improvements in both efficiency and moral, as employees perceive the policy as being more fair and even across the entire workforce.

Employers can simplify the introduction of drug and alcohol screening programs by introducing them into all recruitment events as part of routine health care screening. Where companies do not routinely undertake health screening, introducing drug and alcohol screening into new employment contracts enables the testing of staff in the future, even if this is not being considered immediately. Random testing policies should allow for testing to be undertaken even when no suspicion has been raised, but this needs to be administered in a fair manor, without discrimination. This would normally require the amendment of historic employment contracts held for employees performing identical or similar employment duties.

Random drug testing is normally best undertaken using a saliva drug screening test kit. This tests for 5 or 6 common drugs of abuse, can be taken directly from the employee with their consent and gives on-site screening results in under 5 minutes. saliva tests with up to 12 drug group results are available for employers requiring a more comprehensive screen, but with no HSE guidance on the expected test combination, 5 or 6 drug groups is all most employers will be expected to use. Cover the common drugs and any localised problem drugs (your local drug team can help you with this one) UKDrugTesting have staff who know what tests are best for your business and will help you choose the best value, in both cost, accuracy, and ease of use. (there is no point having a 99% laboratory test if it is so complicated to use, you waist half of them in procedural errors)

Random drug testing will reduce your absent from work rate, reduce the risk of workplace accidents, motivate you staff not to recreationally experiment with drug use. As an employer you will benefit from actively encouraging the health and well being of your workforce.

Drug testing kits for Cannabis

Drug testing kits for Cannabis have been available to purchase online now for about 14 years and have proven to be reliable, accurate & easy to use.

The most popular drug testing kits that detect cannabis use are urine drug testing kits. They can be purchased as either an individual drug test   (usually either a drug testing strip or cassette ) detecting only Cannabis or as part of a multi-panel drug test kits that detects multiple drugs.

Cannabis oral drug test kits are also available to test a saliva sample, and these usually form part of a 6 in 1 or 7 in 1 saliva drug test panel. These are popular for workplace drug screening as you can be sure that the sample has not been tampered with.

Cost wise saliva testing tends to be a little more expensive than urine drug testing and the detection periods are usually shorter.

For home drug testing a urine test for cannabis is probably the best choice as the detection period can be up to 28 days if Cannabis use has been heavy & prolonged.
