Introduction Within the work place, alcohol consumption and the use of illicit drugs is a significant threat to employee safety and productivity. Itâ€™s estimated that alcohol and drug abuse cost the Australian community $18 billion each year - of which $4.5 billion is borne by industry. Furthermore, fifteen per cent of all Australian workplace accidents have been attributed to alcohol consumption. Similarly, alcohol has been identified as being a contributing factor in five per cent of workplace fatalities. (NCETA â€“ Alcohol and the Workplace). Managing alcohol consumption and illicit drug use is important for the safety of your team and the productivity of your business.
Our Services At Fit4 Duty, we devise and implement onsite workplace drug and alcohol programs custom-designed for the requirements of each individual company.
a “people” strategy that is encouraging and proactive, aligns safety communication, and holds people accountable for their fitness for work with their colleagues.
We understand that routine drug and alcohol testing can be confronting for employees. We don’t advocate a witch hunt process; rather we see our goal as identifying current practices and provide mechanisms for behavioural change.
Our accredited testing mechanisms are accompanied by a policy development phase and staff education through informative interactive workshops. We also analyse all the data collected to provide detailed reports on the results. Our approach is designed to spark change within your company rather than constructed to catch rogue employees.
Behaviour change does not occur instantaneously. It takes a lot of energy and effort to initiate successful change, and it takes even more energy to build on that momentum. A partnership with Fit 4 Duty will help your organisation influence and inspire employee engagement in the safety message by building
