Many mining companies have offside camps equipped with wall-mounted alcohol breath testing equipment so staff can test themselves prior to commencing their shift. When they arrive at the mine site they either have to blow into another site-owned wall mount for entry approval or the OHS staff may manually test them.
This workplace testing costs time and money, with returning breath test products for recalibration every six months. These problems are removed with the Alcolizer 5 Series - a handheld breath tester. The device incorporates a removable sampling module that eliminates the need for units to be returned to the laboratory for recalibration.
