Automated alcohol testing

Automated alcohol testing

06 June 2017

Swedish national operator SJ has begun the national rollout of Hök Instrument's Sesame Vonnecy system for the automated daily alcohol testing of safety-critical employees. Staff identify themselves using their ID card, then breathe gently towards the sensor inlet of the machine, with which they do not need to come into contact. A user can be tested every 10 seconds, with a detailed report sent to management systems if alcohol is detected.
