NATA Accredited Laboratories
Safework Health has a national network of NATA accredited laboratories. This means that we are independently assessed to provide the best assurance that the results you are relying on were generated in a competent laboratory.
This independent assessment includes all elements that contribute to the production of accurate, reliable test data including:
- the competence of staff;
- the validity and appropriateness of test methods;
- the traceability of measurements and calibrations to national standards;
- the suitability, calibration, and maintenance of test equipment; and
- the testing environment.

Accredited Oxycodone and Fentanyl Testing
Safework Health is one of the few laboratories in Australia accredited by NATA to provide fentanyl and oxycodone in urine testing.
Our laboratories can detect oxycodone in urine for around 52 hours after use, which increases the chance of detection during a routine workplace drug test.
