Drug and Alcohol Testing
Drug and alcohol testing is an integral component of making any workplace safer, however, it need not be about punishing your staff. It can also be about:
- Correcting unsafe behaviours
- Improving your team’s health
- Increasing productivity
- Lifting team morale
- Intervening before an accident happens
Testing can be undertaken for a wide variety of substances including alcohol, cannabis, amphetamines, cocaine, benzodiazepines, opiates and synthetic cannabis using oral fluids,
Testing can be triggered in a number of different ways including pre-employment testing, random testing, post-incident testing, show cause/on suspicion testing and returns to work.
All tests meet the relevant Australian and New Zealand Standards with laboratory testing conducted by NATA accredited laboratories.
The provision of these services assumes that your company has in place well-developed policies and industrial processes to support the proposed testing arrangements. If not we can provide assistance to review and improve your policy
Results from tests will be fed back to the requesting officer as a matter of urgency.
