Drug test

You must have taken and passed a drug test prior to your arrival at Ringhals. You can take the drug test at your occupational or public health center. The substances tested for are amphetamines, cannabinols, opiates, benzodiazepines and cocaine. If the outcome of the drugs test is positive, you may not attempt to gain access to the site again for at least 2 years. If you use classified drugs for medical purposes, you must supply a medical certificate when the drug test is performed. Random alcohol tests are carried out on site.

A copy of the test result for each individual issued from the health center must be posted to Access Service at Ringhals. Send a copy of the test result at least 7 days prior to arrival. Validity period: 3 years.

Security background checks and register control

Security clearance consists of security checks and a criminal records check. Before you can be granted access to the facilities or to work on IT system of Ringhals, we require the following documents:

  • Approval of register control and Information about security background check – signed by you, the individual
  • Security clearance screening for unescorted access – from your company
  • Statement for register control – completed digitally by you, the individual

Each contractor performs security checks on its own staff. A criminal records check is then performed against police records. Ringhals applies for the criminal records check through Svenska Kraftnät.

For foreign citizens, send the certificates at least 12 weeks prior to arrival. The certificates and criminal records checks are valid for 1 year. They may need to be renewed for absences of longer than a year. Remember that if you change companies, a new certificate is needed.

Medical certificate – screening/health check

If you are going to work within controlled areas at Ringhals, i.e areas where there is radioactivity, a radiological medical examination is required. This includes urine tests, taking blood samples, testing blood pressure and a dialogue with the nurse and doctor. You can take the medical examination at your occupational or public health centre.

Send the certificate at least 7 days prior to arrival. Validity period: 3 years. In the interim period, you should submit a health declaration to the health centre which performed the medical examination.

Foreign staff must submit a dose report upon arrival to Ringhals. This also applies to Swedish residents if doses are not in the Central Dose Register. This may be the case if you have spent time working abroad. The certificate needs to be provided upon arrival at Ringhals.
