Do you need to be tested for work, travel, or just peace of mind? Barrow Safety can now provide a qualified healthcare professional to administer covid-19 tests. These tests can be completed whether you are symptomatic or asymptomatic with an average turnaround time of 48 hours. **If you have severe symptoms, please contact Alberta Health Services.**
This test has been approved for travel, but it is the responsibility of the traveller to be aware of their destination's covid requirements. If you are preparing to travel you will need to schedule your test 72 hours BEFORE your flight. You will also be required to bring your passport to your appointment.
*If you have been directly exposed to someone with covid-19 - you are required to wait 5 DAYS from point of contact before you can be tested.*
Appointments will be available to start as of February 1, 2021. An appointment is required to provide proper safety measures for everyone. Covid testing appointments can NOT be booked after 3:00PM, to ensure same day shipping.
Masks are MANDATORY and are to be worn properly throughout your visit with us.
Barrow Safety Services offers DOT and Non-DOT drug and alcohol testing. Our certified technicians take pride in providing the most accurate testing available.
Urine Drug Testing – Express: You will receive results the same day, and if the result is negative, you can leave our office with a Clean Card in hand. Clean Cards are a wallet-sized copy of a negative test which can get you on a work site quickly.
Urine Drug Testing - Lab Collection: Urine drug testing completed in the laboratory is the most accurate type of drug testing. All laboratory results are reviewed by a Medical Review Officer (MRO) and results are confidentially reported to your company’s Designated Employee Representative (DER).
Oral Fluid Drug Testing - Express/ Lab Collection: Express Oral Fluid Tests provide quick, same day results. Oral fluid samples can also be sent to Lab for review by a Medical Review Officer.
Hair Collection – During this test, the technician will remove a small hair sample close to a person’s scalp using scissors and send it to a laboratory for testing. This test can take up to 2 weeks for results.
Breath Alcohol Testing – We use the Alco-Sensor IV to provide a simple, accurate, and economical method of determining a subject's breath alcohol concentration with evidential grade accuracy.
What to Bring to your Appointment – A government issued photo I.D. is required to proceed with any testing (Drivers License, Passport, Status Card, etc.).
Dress Appropriately – All outerwear must be removed prior to testing, including jacket, sweaters, coveralls, boots, etc. Please consider leaving valuables in your vehicle.
