Drugs in the Workplace
The increasingly widespread availability of illegal drugs can lead to experimental, recreational and dependent use, which in turn may affect an individual’s ability to do their job effectively. It is important that all businesses are aware of the potential impact of drugs to their bottom line, and have in place an effective and robust workplace policy that clearly outlines a company’s rules and procedures for dealing with substance misuse.
All drugs detection teams are capable of locating all major illicit substances including heroin, cocaine, crack cocaine, ecstasy, amphetamines, lsd, marijuana etc.
Teams will report direct to your company management and follow instructions relating to the clients company policy.
Diplomacy, discretion and confidentiality are a key factor in all our work and as such we endeavor to offer advice to individuals/groups relating to the law and the companies policies regarding the misuse of illegal substances in the workplace.
