Drug and Alcohol Testing

Drug and Alcohol Testing is becoming increasingly common in Australian workplaces, as the impact of alcohol and other drugs continues to have an effect on the overall Work Health and Safety of employees. It is been estimated that 25% of workplace accidents; and 10% workplace deaths are drug or alcohol related. If you are concerned about drug use in your workplace, a D&A policy and program can drastically help to reduce these risks and increase WHS protection.

LaneWorkSafe provide trusted results for your on-site drug and alcohol testing.

The two most common matrix or modes of on-site drug testing are saliva and urine based drug testing kits. Both have their advantages, and depending on your workplace can be suitable for in-house drug testing programs.

On-Site Drug Testing Services

If your workplace is looking to implement a drug and alcohol testing program, but do not want to conduct the tests yourself; using a third party to conduct the drug testing or drug screening could be the solution. Having qualified third party testers to come on-site will limit any personal bias or staff relationship issues.

Based on your location across Australia, we are able to provide a team of friendly, trained professionals to come on-site and meet your drug and alcohol testing needs.
