Methamphetamine use in vehicles causes permanent and irreversible damage to vehicles. Once "P" has been smoked in a car, for example, all soft materials and plastics in the interior must be disposed of - making the car not economically repairable. Many organisations have strong anti-drug policy and wording in contracts, however they do not back it up with checks of vehicles.
As an employer, checking of fleet vehicles is one facet of a multi-mode drug detection plan. Marijuana can pose significant risks in the workplace, especially in the operation of vehicles. With new health and safety laws coming in, we have sought out instant testing for Marijuana to extend to our customers.
For Vehicle Dealers, preventing a "meth car" from ever getting on the lot is a valuable step in checking the history of a vehicle. "P" is a drug which isn't tied to any particular class - we've tested everything from Luxury vehicles to Family cars and found evidence of methamphetamine contamination across the board.
How is testing performed?
Due to the size of the enclosed space in a car or vehicle cab, a single "presumptive" test for each kind of drug is typically enough for most types of vehicles. Our team can perform this kind of testing quickly, and give an instant "safe/unsafe" reading before leaving your premises. These presumptive tests are highly accurate.
What vehicles can be tested?
Most vehicles can be tested - any vehicle with an enclosed area. In the past, we have tested:
- Earthmoving Machinery eg Diggers
- Industrial Equipment
- Camper Vans/Motor Homes
