Random drugs and alcohol testing is an effective way of ensuring that safety on site is of paramount importance.
Attitudes towards the effects of drugs and alcohol on workers, should be fed down from senior managers and adopted by all.
Drinking or taking drugs before working on site could effect reaction times, judgements and result in dangerous incidents or accidents on site.
Examples of how sites have implemented drug and alcohol testing include:
Monitor report, Galliford Try Infrastructure, Warwickshire, May 2014; Monitor report, Maxiflow Ltd, Chester, August 2014; Monitor report, BAM Nuttall Ltd, October 2014
