Prevention of drugs and alcohol in the workplace
Whether above ground or underground: in mining as in many industries, employees must fully concentrate on their work, because almost all of their activities are safety-relevant.
Prevention and screening programs are an effective means of combatting alcohol and drug abuse in the workplace. In order to run and document such alcohol and drug prevention programs, companies need breathalyzers and drug screening devices that make it possible to carry out a quick and discrete check while providing reliable evidence.
Bill 230 for Drug Impaired Driving had its first reading in October.
