About Us


COVIDdetect was founded by DriverCheck Inc. in 2021.

As Canada’s Fitness for Duty experts, DriverCheck’s company-wide purpose is to build a safer and healthier world. Founded in 1996, DriverCheck is the leading provider of workplace medical testing and assessments in the country serving thousands of employers in a variety of industries including transportation, oil & gas, aviation, rail, mining, construction, healthcare, manufacturing and forestry.

DriverCheck conducts hundreds of thousands of medical tests annually, offering alcohol and drug testing, occupational health services, medical cannabis review services, medical staffing, and injury management programs.
