Saliva Drug testing to new NZ Standards

Manage risk and hazards of drug and alcohol

Saliva drug testing and urine drug testing at your workplace provide the ability to determine recent use or habitual use. Saliva as a drug test specimen uses drug cutoff concentrations which correlates to acute impairment and drug levels in the blood. If it's in the saliva it's in the blood and if its on the blood it’s affecting the safe performance of tasks.
