Drug Testing in the Workplace

Introducing an active alcohol and other drugs (A & OD) policy and procedure into workplaces is becoming a must in workplace safety systems. Once only done in legislated industries such as rail, transport and mining, we now see a growing understanding of the value of an A & OD program across most blue collar industries, such as construction.

It is not just about employee safety anymore; it’s about employee health and fatigue and promoting a healthy workplace culture.

Being such a sensitive issue however, you do not want to get it wrong. If you seek advice and support in starting and/or running your program, working with a NATA accredited provider should be your first focus. Knowing that the processes you implement are going to stand up when challenged is vital. Best practice is a must. Then, experience.

Service Offering
Frontline Diagnostics specialise only in A & OD. With over 15 years’ experience, they were the first to be NATA accredited nationally for both urine screening and collection (AS/NZS4308) and oral fluid collection (AS4760). Offering the complete solution to implementing an A & OD program into your workplace, their range of services includes policy development, employee education, Fit for Duty (Work) and testing (ASQA) training, equipment and of course urine, oral fluid and breath alcohol screening and collection. Testing in house and in some states, within their mobile clinics.

Talk to us for free advice on implementing and managing your A & OD program in your workplace.

Drug Addiction Treatment – Drugs Used to Treat Drug Addicts

May 13, 2016

drug addiction treatment using drugsDrug addiction is a disease, and a complex one at that. If it weren’t, kicking a drug habit should be fairly easy. That, however, is far from being the case. Drugs alter the brain in more ways than one, and it will take more than good intentions and an iron will to draw those harmful substances out of one’s system. A drug addict needs drug addiction treatment, even more so when that drug addict is employed. We all are aware how workers under the influence of drugs pose a danger to the health and safety of everyone in the workplace, as well as how much they need help to recover from it.

There are a number of different approaches to addiction treatment. One of those approaches can be quite controversial, because it requires the use of other drugs. That’s right: some addiction treatment approaches use drugs—pharmacotherapy, to be exact—to treat a person’s addiction to certain substances. Here are some of those drugs, including some which actually have addictive properties themselves.
