Drugs or alcohol use - be it recreational, medicinal, or a dependence - can affect the workplace, your people and the credibility of a business. Using drugs or alcohol in the workplace can impair an employees' performance leading to:
- Poor concentration and negligence
- Injuries (to both the worker and others in the workplace)
- Lateness or absenteeism
- Reduced performance and productivity
- Plant or equipment damage
- Damage to reputation of the business
- Loss of contracts
- Loss of lives
Having a proactive drugs and alcohol policy can help you win contracts. It shows that you care about your workmanship, product and gives peace of mind for future business partnerships that you run a tight ship.
"As a multi-trade company supplying services in the Plumbing, Drainage Roofing and Gas-fitting fields, we work for a number of companies that notify us contractually that random drug testing is an essential requirement of compliance.
To understand the random drug testing process we engaged Robert Taylor (DrugWise Auckland, formerly DADS Co). The process was found to be very professional. A modern, custom vehicle, fully kitted out was used for testing in. Robert was very clear in explaining the process and testing was carried out in a very discreet manor.
We have no hesitation in recommending them. "
