We provide drug and alcohol testing at the workplace and drug safety services throughout the NSW North Coast.
Ensuring a Drug-Safe Workplace for Everyone
We have been living locally and managing /owning businesses in the NSW North Coast for the last 20 years. Unfortunately, in that time we have seen the increase of drug related incidents. We know there is no quick fix but we can be part of the change.
Under the banner of Drug-Safe Workplaces, we assist employers, sporting clubs, Nursing Homes, etc with a means to identify and deal with drug and alcohol abuse.
We help you keep your business and your employees safer by implementing a Drug and Alcohol Risk Management Program.
If we can encourage employees to think about their intake of drugs/alcohol and the impact that this has on themselves and fellow workers, the benefits will have a flow on effect – from increased safety and productivity in the workplace to benefits to family and our community.
We can help you with,
- Creating the right Drug and Alcohol Policy for your business or review your existing one.
- Training Supervisors and Management in their roles and responsibilities and what to look for when identifying a problem.
- Training on introduction of updated/new policy for all employees to develop an understanding of how it benefits them.
- On-Site drug testing – 100% confidential and efficient
Our on-site drug testing services include:
- for cause, or after incident
- blanket testing for overall site analysis and issue identification
