Understanding drug and alcohol testing in the workplace

By: Rhys Evans, Alco-Safe (Director)

Effective, comprehensive health and safety procedures are not only essential for compliance with the Operational Health and Safety (OHS) Act, they are also important for ensuring productive working environments. However, when it comes to sensitive aspects such as drug and alcohol policies and testing, implementation of policies and procedures may not be altogether straightforward.

Hygiene and sanitation expanded

No matter what industry you are in, hygiene and sanitation is an important aspect.

To add clarity to the matter MMPR has sourced information on how hygiene and sanitation in the mining context is viewed from a legal stand point.


Temperature’s rising


Just say the word ‘temperature’ in the mining industry and a vast array of concepts spring to mind, whether from a health/safety point of view, as a sustainability incentive or an innovation in technology. MMPR investigates the massive role that temperature plays in mining, how it can be controlled, how it is ignored and how it can be improved.


Rights and responsibilities

People are the most important asset of any organisation, and all employees are entitled to the highest consideration for their safety while in the workplace. The Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) Act is a proactive attempt by government to provide and maintain a safe and healthy work environment for all, and is something that must be enforced in any organisation in any industry.
