CFMEU proposes drug and alcohol testing

Tuesday, 14th April, 2015, by Alanna Furlan
In today's Health & Safety Bulletin:
  • CFMEU proposes drug and alcohol testing
Dear Reader,
The construction division of the CFMEU has proposed an impairment policy that will include drug and alcohol testing for everyone in the industry.
The union is pushing for mandatory testing across the construction industry, with employers to be tested as well as workers.
Drug and alcohol testing is just one component of the policy, which will also examine other causes of impairment in the industry, including:
  • fatigue;
  • injury;
  • illness;
  • job insecurity; and
  • physical and mental impairment.
If workers or employers are found to be impaired by drugs or alcohol, they will be offered counselling and support by the CFMEU, as well as assistance in overcoming their drug or alcohol addiction.

Remember, impairment due to drug or alcohol misuse could affect workers – and employers – in any industry. For more information about how to test for and recognise signs of drug or alcohol misuse, refer to chapter A1 Alcohol and Other Drugs in your Health & Safety Handbook.
