Drug and Alcohol Testing Services


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, urin and hair testing..

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.

VaxWorks can provide collection centre-based drug and alcohol testing throughout Australia.  Our partner testing agencies have a large number of collection centres in capital cities and many regional cities.

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

VaxWorks will, upon being notified, of the need for a post-incident or show-cause test, will arrange collection centre-based testing during business hours or after hours if necessary.  It is the responsibility of the employer to ensure the employee is able to travel to the collection centre safely.

Results from tests will be fed back to the requesting officer as a matter of urgency.

Pre-employment screening as well as onsite random drug and alcohol screening can also be arranged and provided as needed.
