The test is performed by a trained technician at a collection site with results available in 10 – 15 minutes. If a confirmation test is required the technician will perform the confirmation test using the same device.
Commonly used when testing is done on-site at the employer’s location. The saliva alcohol test device may only be used for screening. If the screening level is at or above cut-off levels, additional confirmation testing should be completed at a collection facility using an EBT (Evidential Breath Test Device).
Unlike breath and saliva, blood alcohol testing is a lab-based test. The sample is collected at a medical clinic, packaged and sent to a certified laboratory for testing. HireRight provides the employer with the final alcohol test report.
