Drug and alcohol testing in Western Australia a huge task


We all know that Western Australia is a huge state and its sheer size can cause issues for service and product supply. You might think the same issues apply if you’re a workplace that needs to conduct drug and alcohol testing, but, thankfully, Integrity Sampling has you covered.

Integrity Sampling’s drug and alcohol testing service range in Western Australia is, like the state itself, huge. It takes in most of the key workforce areas of the WA, including the Pilbara and Kimberley regions in the north, the Great Southern region in the south, the Mid-West in the west and the Goldfields area in the central part of the state. Integrity Sampling has braches in Western Australian in Busselton, Dampier, Geraldton, Kalgoorlie, Karratha, Perth and Port Hedland, all of which can help businesses with workplace drug and alcohol testing, as well as other drug and alcohol management services.

This reach means you will find Integrity Sampling consultants in Western Australia servicing industries in regional and remote areas. Industries such as farmers, manufacturers, the maritime and aviation industries, government departments and other local businesses. Industries that place a high priority on safety and understand the benefits of using drug and alcohol testing as part of a broader safety plan.

Drug and alcohol testing in Western Australia – what’s the plan?

If you’re considering starting drug and alcohol testing of employees in your Western Australian workplace – and there are many good reasons why you should – remember that testing should be part a broader plan to tackle drugs and alcohol, and not be used in isolation.

The first step is the development of a drug and alcohol management plan, which in part will detail how you will manage drugs and alcohol in the workplace and include the responsibilities of all employees and staff. It will also include details of the drug and alcohol testing that your WA workplace will implement, such as what methods of testing you will use, the process for positive tests, the consequences when someone returns a positive test and the consequences for an employee who refuses testing.

Your plan should also include education for everyone in your workforce, as well as support for those people who have drug and alcohol issues.
