  • Drug Tests

    Okay first off I know this seems like I am a user of drugs as of the nature of the topic, however I'm simply asking how often do us cadets get drug tested (urine sample) whilst at college etc? Just wish to know, thanks in advance.

    Anoymous as stated above..

    It's random, that's the whole point. Just don't do it.
    Go out, do stuff

      Depends on who you work for. I have never been drugs tested.

        Don't use drugs then you've nothing to worry about. Pretty simple really.

          I've never been tested at college but have been tested once on board.

            During my cadetship I was tested twice and as an officer only ever at my annual company medical. I am not saying that you are doing drugs (seriously who cares - you are a big boy or girl) but you can google how long certain drugs will be in your system if you are concerned about it.

              I was tested for drugs in my first 7 weeks of being employed by my sponsor company, as others have said it's totally random so just don't do it.

                No I do not report things from here to them as they are quite able to come and read this stuff for themselves.

                  They are random at sea with Borg, at college they tend to stay away unless people are turning up hammered for lessons etc I recall a story about some underage people at one of the colleges who were coming in a bit tipsy

                    Was that a 'random' appearance by Concateno (Medscreen) or is a test at BRNC now part of the routine?

                      When I started my cadetship in 2000 all the Clyde marine cadets were tested on their first day at college. A week later a few sacked immediately. We were never tested again.

                        Can criminal charges not be brought against someone under the influence of drink or drugs on a ship?

                        I think yacht owners are now subject to the same dink-drive laws as motorists, so if someone on a ship is found to be under the influence of drink or a drug could this be reported to the police and result in a criminal prosecution on top of just a sacking?

                          Yes. Rail and Marine transport act I think it was. It'll be in the MAIB report about Muppet who crashed into the Stena ferry in Northern Island
