Drug Testing

Give yourself the peace of mind.

Increasingly, employers are aware of the use of drugs by their employees and the potential impact this could have on their business. The Health & Safety at Work Act 2015 places a duty of care on the employer to provide a safe workplace for their employees. Employees who may have taken drugs, even in a personal capacity outside of work, can continue to be affected by those drugs when they are at work.

This can lead to “Poor concentration, carelessness, risk-taking behaviour and errors in judgement. Drug and alcohol abuse not only affects work performance, but also results in higher rates of injuries, fatalities and absenteeism as well as reduced productivity”. (Department of Labour)

The duty of care lies with you!

The Health & Safety at Work Act 2015 places a duty of care on the employer to provide a safe workplace for their employees.

Confidence when you really need it!

Drug testing gives you peace of mind that your employees are safe for work, attentive and engaged and not distracted or incapable of doing their job due to the lingering effects of drugs.

Drug Testing

Life Care Consultants provides drug testing for most recreational drugs and can often provide instant reports if the presence of drugs is found.

Urine drug testing

Urine testing allows the employer to identify employees who are at risk of being impaired at work because of drug use, and who are therefore a potential hazard in the workplace.

This testing may indicate the use of drugs by an employee a sufficient time before commencement or recommencement of work, or use either at work or outside of work hours. Alcohol testing can be carried out also if required.

 

Drugs tested for:

  • THC
  • Cocaine
  • Amphetamine
  • Methamphetamine
  • Benzodiazepines
  • Opiates

Results for these tests can be instant with a “Negative” result or “Requires further testing”. Further testing can then be done by sending the sample off for analysis at an approved 3rd party facility.

Synthetic testing

The testing is for both synthetic cannabis and AMP synthetic cathinones as both these compounds offer a real risk in the workplace due to how they are made and their unpredictable effects on the user.

Although synthetic cannabis is not mentioned in the AS/NZS4308:2008 standard, you need to be aware that you are obligated to provide a safe working environment for all staff, and synthetic cannabis DOES cause impairment.
