UPDATE: A short while back we brought your attention to a start-up New Mexico company, Tru Touch Technologies, busily developing a non-invasive blood alcohol testing device currently for use in public testing (police) and private (airlines, construction, rehab facilities… ) sectors . The TruTouch sensor operates by using near- infrared technology through the skin’s layers in testing for alcohol and drugs in one’s system.
“TruTouch Technologies is commercializing a novel, optical based, non-invasive sensor that quickly and accurately measures alcohol intoxication while simultaneously verifying user identity using light through the skin. The sensor is fast (less than 20 seconds), easy to use, self-administered, and cost-effective.”
How it works: Press finger to tab, results output. Watch the video:
“As it becomes clear to every employee that a Target Zero Alcohol-Free Workplace is being actively tested by using TruTouch, on-duty impairment by alcohol will soon be a thing of the past. Employees will fundamentally change their alcohol drinking habits and alcohol usage will rapidly dwindle and ultimately disappear from the workplace.
Productivity will rise.
Healthcare and Workman’s Compensation costs will go down.
Liability caused by alcohol related incidents will all but disappear.”
TruTouch is now operational in many US and European companies/agencies.
Rarely do we endorse a product or service but TruTouch is a device whose time has come.
