Our Digital Collection Service
When conducting drug and alcohol testing in the workplace, a seamless and efficient collection service is always an advantage to the process. To support this, SYNLAB Laboratory Services launched Safeguard Digital, a tablet-based platform for digital drug and alcohol collections used by our national Collection Service.
Our Safeguard Digital platform forms part of our rigorous collection process, our Collection Technicians use it to document the collection process from start to finish.
Safeguard Digital was developed as part of our innovation pipeline, and highlights our commitment to continually invest in new technologies to improve communication and efficiency throughout our business.
We are the only drug and alcohol testing supplier to offer Safeguard Digital as part of our sample collection process.
