Workplace Wellness can assist companies by testing their employees for the use of any Drug substances according to Australian and New Zealand standards (AS/NZS 4308:2001) by using a specimen instant six pot drug test kit which tests for the following drugs:
- THC (Marijuana)
- Methamphetamines (“P”)
An adulteration detection strip is also identified to detect substances which may have been used to alter the specimen.
Employees carry this out for the following reason:
‘Under the Health and Safety in Employment Act 1992, and its 2003 amendments, employers have an obligation to take “all practicable steps” to ensure the safety of employees while at work. Drugs and Alcohol are listed in the amendments as being a potential hazard. The introduction of workplace drug testing, particularly in safety sensitive areas, is one way in which employers can meet their obligations. Workplace drug testing must, however, take account of several laws including the Privacy Act 1993, the New Zealand Bill of Rights Act 1990, and the Human Rights Act 1993’
Employers who choose to use these procedures can rest assure that our team will assist them in creating and making positive Drug and Alcohol processes that suit whilst creating a healthier and safer place for their organisation.
6pot Instant Drug Tests cost $60 +gst per test
