Drug and Alcohol Screening

For some industries screening for Drugs and Alcohol has become compulsary, Construction, Aviation and building industries are but a named few. Since 2015 new ammendments to the building code have made it compulsary for building contractors working on sites financially funded by federal funds to undergo drug and alcohol screening. Are you and your business compliant with legislation?

How We Can Help You?

Work Health Specialists provides a wide range of onsite workplace drug and alcohol screening across Australia. Our accredited drug testers will attend your work site and perform urine or saliva drug testing and a breath alcohol test. All our testing meets the relevant Australian standards, with results that are legally defensible.

Our pre- site service to you include:
  • Review of your current Drug and Alcohol policy to ensure compliance and understanding how to handle any non-compliance or non-negatives.
  • Review of your facilities to ensure compliance with legislative requirements.
  • Provision of a Drug & Alcohol test plan to ensure that the correct test method has been selected and  aid management in randomising employee selection to ensure compliance.
Our on-site service to you include:
  • Our trained screeners will attend site 15 minutes prior to screening commencement to set up in the pre-approved collection room.
  • The selected employees will be required to present to the testing location and upon completion of the Chain of Custody form will be tested by the pre-determined method (Urine or Saliva) before returning back to work. This process can be co-ordinated to reduce down time.
  • Any initial non-negative urine drug test results are sent to a NATA accredited laboratory for mandatory confirmatory GCMS testing.
  • A complete employee report will be avialable by the end of the day and provided to pre-approved employees only. Any non-negative samples sent for further evaluation will be availale within 24 hours, made avialble by the labroratory.

    Lung Function Testing

    Spirometry is the most common test of lung function and mainstay for the screening and management of workers at risk of occupational lung disease. For some workplaces it is important to establish a baseline respiratory function so that an employee’s lung function can be monitored over time to determine whether any occupational exposures to airborne hazards such as vapors, dusts, gases, fumes are impacting on lung function.

    Mental Health Services

    You have Public Liability insurance and Workers Compensation but how can you protect your business from the downside of poor mental health? Legislation passed in 2012 dictates every workplace has a legal obligation to protect employee health and safety, both physically and mentally. But it makes great financial sense for your business too to take steps to ensure the working environment is considerate of mental health and aware of what makes a happy, healthy workplace.
