Drug and alcohol testing in a COVID normal world
The Alcohol and Drug Foundation have an excellent page on their website which succinctly explains the dangers of drugs and driving on our roads.
While the information is specifically aimed at road users, it’s just as relevant to employees who work in roles where safety is important. These are workplace employees who, like drivers and motorcyclists, need to be focussed and concentrating on the task at hand, for the safety of themselves and others. When alcohol or drugs (including illegal and some prescription drugs) is added to this workplace mix it’s a dangerous combination. People who come to work under the influence pose a danger to everyone in the workplace.
One of the ways of protecting your business from the scourge of drugs and alcohol is to conduct workplace drug and alcohol testing, as part of an overall drug and alcohol management plan. By conducting testing, you’ll be able to identify employees who knowingly or unknowingly are placing themselves and others in danger.
As Australia moves more towards a COVID-19 normal world, Integrity Sampling is continuing to conduct workplace drug and alcohol testing at all our branches across Australia. We have taken extra steps to ensure our staff are provided with additional training, PPE gear, disinfectants and sanitisers in line with the guidelines provided by the Australian Department of Health in relation to COVID-19.
In short, we are COVID-ready to help your business through this difficult time.
Please contact us if you have any questions about drug and alcohol management in your workplace.
