Breath Alcohol Testing
Common for DOT required alcohol testing, a breath alcohol test determines how much alcohol is in your blood by measuring the amount of alcohol in the air you breathe out (exhale). The test is performed by a trained breath alcohol technician (BAT) using an Evidential Breath Testing (EBT) device. For workplace alcohol testing DOT or Non-Dot, breath alcohol testing is recommended to determine current impairment.
Breath alcohol testing is used to detect alcohol in the human breath. The evidential breath testing devices used at Rapid Screening Services meet the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration’s model specifications for precision and accuracy. We are also DOT approved. Breath alcohol results are known immediately.
We also facilitate Urine Alcohol Testing
This method has the advantage of being inexpensive and easy to do in cases where urine drug testing is already in place, but it also has significant disadvantages for workplace drug testing. The main disadvantage to testing for alcohol in urine is the difficulty in relating the urine concentration of alcohol to the legal benchmark, which is blood alcohol. A urine alcohol test does not prove current impairment.
