How testing kits can help cut injury rates

The ATN (Australian Transport News) Magazine published an article highlighting how Andatech’s alcohol and drug testing equipment has helped local transport and logistics company, Kings Transport, ensure the safety of their employees.

Kings Safety has been using Andatech’s products for 18 months.

A breathalyser and saliva testing kit has helped to change the drug testing process at one trucking company, as part of a broader campaign which has helped to cut its year on year lost time injuries by 20 per cent in 2017.

At first glance, the scheme seems to be working, with Kings’ ‘Safety Always’ campaign helping it reduce its lost time injury frequency rate to about 1.87 per hour worked – which it says is “impressively well below our industry benchmark of 13.4 – as per Safe Work Australia’s Road Freight Transport Industry benchmark.”

The company uses two different kits produced by Andatech – the DrugSense DSO 7 saliva drug testing kit and the Andatech Prodigy S breathalyser, which the company’s safety coordinator for Western Australia, Lindsey Borthwick, says are easy to use, accurate and cost effective.
