Drugs and alcohol testing
The way that coronavirus is transmitted between people means that the way D&A tests have previously been carried out in Clancy is no longer safe.
Clancy testers use Dtech drug wipes and breathalysers. Both of these bring the tester and the employee being screened within 2m of each other, facing each other, involve the exhalation of air which could contain viral droplets, and results in contaminated waste being produced. This whole process could also last more than 15 minutes.
The current government guidance recommends that in order to prevent infection, people are advised to:
- Practice good hygiene by handwashing frequently
- Maintain 2m distance between people to prevent transmission of the virus
- If you cannot maintain 2m distance do not face the other person.
- If you are coughing place your hand or inner arm over your mouth
- If you are sneezing catch it in a tissue and then bin it
- Keep indoor spaces well ventilated
- If you are feeling unwell with any of the symptoms of coronavirus, self isolate and take a test.
The following guidance aims to reduce the risk to the tester and person being screened to as low as reasonably possible.
