We provide drug and alcohol testing and drug safety services to the greater Illawarra, South Coast & Southern Highlands area in NSW.
Drug and Alcohol Testing
WHS legislation require ALL businesses to identify and minimise risk – that includes the risk of drugs and alcohol!
If your business does not have risk control procedures in place to address alcohol and drug influences, you are at risk. These risks are real and potentially catastrophic for your company:
- accidents/incidents at the workplace
- reduced productivity
- higher turnover
- higher insurance premiums
- litigation if you have ignored the warning signs
We can develop a custom-tailored, comprehensive Alcohol & Drug Risk Management Plan for your organisation.
Most importantly, we are able to adapt our services to suit your industry’s needs. Your plan may include some or all of the following services:
- Alcohol & Drug Policy Development
- Alcohol & Drug procedural documentation to support your policy
- Staff Awareness Sessions on the effects of Drugs & Alcohol.
- Pre-Employment Alcohol & Drug Testing
- Alcohol & Drug On-site Testing
- Surface Drug Residue Detection
- Reporting of Results with quarterly or annual analysis.
- As an employer you are fulfilling your duty of care under WHS legislation.
- Your staff will understand that being under the effects of Alcohol & Drugs in your workplace will not be tolerated.
- You will be reducing the risk in your business.
- You will improve the safety of your employees, contractors, clients and general public.
- Your profitability will improve through increased productivity.
- You may reduce insurance premiums as the rate of accidents, damage to equipment, theft and claims reduce.
Best of all, you will become part of the solution! As your employees reduce their alcohol and drug intake, the benefits flow back to their families and community as a whole
