Compulsory drug and alcohol testing to be introduced on building sites


In an attempt to improve workplace safety standards on construction sites, the Federal Government has announced plans to introduce compulsory drug and alcohol testing on building sites.

“It is essential that workers on construction sites do not present a risk to themselves, their co-workers, and the public by having drugs and alcohol in their systems. Safety is paramount consideration on construction sites. It is simply an unacceptable risk to have workers affected by drugs or alcohol on construction sites” stated former Employment Minister Mr Abetz.
