Workplace Drug and Alcohol Policies
Drug Testing Services can help you create, implement and carry out a Workplace Drug and Alcohol Testing Policy – making it easier for you to manage the process of testing employees and job applicants for drug and alcohol use.
A comprehensive Workplace Drug and Alcohol Policy will also help ensure that you are meeting all of your obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015 and reducing any liability risks that the organisation or its directors may be vulnerable to.
We can help you:
- Develop and write a drug and alcohol policy (e.g. details around what sort of testing will be conducted, how often, how employees will be treated if substance use is suspected or revealed, etc)
- Educate your managers about the policy (e.g. what procedures should they be following, how are they expected to deal with disputes, when should HR be involved, etc)
- Educate your employees about the policy (e.g. what does it mean for them, what can they expect, how can they adhere to the policy, inform them of what prescription or over-the-counter medicines may affect a test, etc)
- Implement a drug and alcohol policy (e.g. conducting random and scheduled tests, managing the call-up cycle, rehabilitation testing plans, advice etc)
Having a policy in place is the best preventative practice you can take to ensure that you have the highest calibre staff working for you and to ensure that you have eliminated as many hazards and risks as possible for your organisation.
