Workplace drug testing is inefficient and can lead to workers simply changing drugs or avoiding reporting incidents, according to a new national report.

    The comments from Ken Pitt is typical of funded agencies that are totally out of of touch with the current technology,testing devices and onsite applications. The majority of WA mining drug testing is urine based and easily detect the use of Amphetamine and most other illicit drug including synthetic cannabis. It is proven that workplace drug testing improves productivity and decrease injury as well as many other benefits.
    Ken Harkins has a point however the training should be more regulated and only delivered by NATA accredited agencies. The likelihood of discrimination and targeting is fanciful and is like commies under the bed or the CIA wanting their DNA. If anyone would like the facts please call 1300660636
