Our Mission – Pioneering Drug and Alcohol Testing
Drug-Safe Workplaces founder, Michael White, was the pioneer of workplace drug testing in Australia. He created this company after witnessing for himself how a drug abusing member of his staff literally destroy his entire organisation and reputation. If you ever have the opportunity to meet with Michael you will experience the pain and hardship it caused him personally seeing his life’s work disappear inside a year.
For me personally, this was my WHY in joining the Drug Safe Group. I have seen the pain it can cause an individual when the worse happens and tomorrow you are left with nothing.
It is Drug-Safe’s and my personal mission to continue to innovate. We want to ensure that you, your employees and the community around you can feel safe in their everyday lives.
