Gradko Forensics has a number of solutions available to help the Transport industry in detecting and preventing drug use
- Pro-active preventative measures to avoid drug use by drivers
- Demonstrates a zero-tolerance approach to drugs
- Cost-effective drug screening can be used prior to targeted urine drug tests
- A proactive approach to drugs avoids accidents, fines and negative publicity
We offer a completely confidential drug intelligence screening service which can be invaluable in checking drivers areas to screen for possible drug use. This service can detect tiny traces of virtually any drug including controlled drugs, 'legal highs' and prescription drugs. Knowledge of which drivers may be using drugs can help in targeting certain individuals for more thorough testing e.g. drug urine or hair testing.
The main benefit of this service as an initial step is that all swabbing can be carried out covertly without the drivers knowledge, giving you a good baseline assessment of whether any further intervention is likely to be needed.
Results of intelligence screening are only disclosed to yourselves and will never be passed to a third party including the police.
Drugs Intelligence Screening Kits - Further information
What you get:
You will get a complete kit for swabbing surfaces, full laboratory analysis & a report as to which drugs (if any) were detected.
How it works:
Using the kit provided, you can swab any surface to detect tiny traces of controlled or prescription drugs. For haulage companies we recommend swabbing the steering wheel, or drivers seat. The kit can also be used on bulk powders or liquids. Simply follow the instructions, use the kit and return the swab to us in the tamper evident bag provided (return postage not included). We will analyse your swab and provide you with a report detailing any drugs detected and their classification under the Misuse of Drugs Act 1971. Results can be sent by post, email or given over the phone; just tick your preference on the form included in the kit.
Who is it for?:
This service allows you to confidentially assess whether drugs are present on any surface, or to test a drug itself should this be required.
Who are we?:
Your swab will be analysed by Gradko Forensics, a Home Office licensed forensic drugs laboratory based in the UK. Our scientists have many years of experience in the field of controlled drugs detection and we use the sensitive method of GCMS (Gas Chromatography, Mass Spectrometry) to analyse your sample.
How long will it take?:
Your kit will be dispatched within 1 working day. On receipt of your swab at the laboratory, we will analyse and provide you with a report within 10 working days for the standard kit, and within 5 working days for the Fast Track kit.
Due to the nature of traces detection, the information provided in the report is for intelligence purposes only and cannot be used for evidence. The swabs are for surface testing only and are not suitable for testing of drugs in/on humans e.g. hands, saliva or urine.
