Drug and Alcohol Testing Service

Third Party Sampling Service

According to the Australian Drug Foundation, 5% of all Australian workplace deaths and 11% of accidents are attributed to alcohol use.

With an estimated 62% of harmful drug and alcohol users in full-time employment, the need for workplace testing is a huge necessity not only in safety-critical industries such as construction and building, but also in white collar sectors.

Benefits of a workplace drug testing policy

Prevalence of use and misuse of alcohol and other drugs in Australia is significant.

Up to 7.7% of employees surveyed self-reported drug use at work, but the actual figures could be much higher.

The primary concern for misuse of drugs and alcohol in the workplace is “fitness for work”, specifically whether a person can safely perform their duties or whether they are free from the effects of alcohol or other drugs. Implementing an alcohol and drug testing program can help to deter drug use in the workplace, educate employees on workplace safety, and ensure the organisation's compliance with safety and legislation.


Deter employees from coming to work affected by drugs and/or alcohol


Educate employees to not get caught by observing required time frames to allow drugs and alcohol to be metabolised from their system before coming to work


Reduce lost time, injuries and/or major incidents resulting from drugs / alcohol in the workplace


Ensure compliance with risk management items including drugs & alcohol factors in Quality systems or WHS systems, legislative requirements or even with principal clients or contract providers
