Thank you to everyone who attended our Lunch and Learn – Exploring Alcohol and Other Drug Testing in the Workplace. We hope that you found the session beneficial and came away with some great insights and tips to implement in your workplace.

Below are Meg’s top three takeaways from the seminar:

  1. Alcohol and other drugs can significantly impact a workplace and its employees.
  2. It’s important to understand what is better for your workplace policy i.e. Lab based vs Instant Screens
    Is it that instant screens will work because cost effective and you’re able to do those screens quickly? Or are you after something very robust with full chain of custody backing should it come under scrutiny – in which case you would go with lab based testing.
  3. Learn how to interpret your results and understand how they support your HR decisions
    What do the results mean? What does it mean if someone is taking a specific prescribed medication? And how that might impact your workplace.
