According to the Australian Bureau of Statistics, drug deaths in Australia have been on the increase since the late 90s
If you are concerned about drug and alcohol use among your employees, we offer a full range of services that include workplace drug and alcohol management and testing.
Drug use in Melbourne
Illegal drugs in Melbourne are clearly a big problem, with arrests and drug seizures in Brunswick West, Coburg, Pascoe Vale, Hadfield, Fawkner, Campbellfield, Sunshine, and Keilor.
In an effort to save lives, the government of Victoria has followed in the footsteps of New South Wales.
Ice users can now shoot up in Melbourne’s new supervised injecting facility, granted that they meet certain eligibility requirements.
Now consider the statistics that almost 70% of all drug users are employed. Further, we know that no industry is safe. You really cannot be certain just how many of your own employees or colleagues could be suffering from addiction and drug dependency.
Therefore, you want to protect your employees from the dangers of drug abuse with a comprehensive workplace drug and alcohol testing program.
Why Drug-Test Your Employees?
With the staggering rates of drug-induced and drug-related deaths in this country and the shocking user demographics, it’s only natural to want to safeguard your business and your employees.
When you implement a drug-safe program you are saying to your workers that you value them, and that you want to ensure a safe and healthy place of work.
Keep your workplace safe and maintain a healthy work environment through a comprehensive drug and alcohol program.
You will not only keep your employees safe, but you will also protect your company by cutting the risk of legal liabilities in the event of an accident involving drug use.
Therefore, find out who among your workforce is struggling with substance abuse, and address it while you can.
