Transport Industry – Workplace Testing
The Transport Industry is one of New Zealand’s largest and most critical industries. A recent study published by Road Transport Forum NZ highlights that at present 91% of the total freight in New Zealand is transported via road. The study goes on to suggest that this figure will remain constant right through until 2042. Given the importance of the transport industry in New Zealand, Active Testing Solutions has established a fully bespoke testing regime for fleets throughout the country.
Unfortunately methamphetamine has pervaded all facets of New Zealand, from homes and holiday houses, to workshops and transport units. It is a scourge on society and we all have a part to play in trying to reduce the harm and negative effects that it has on our great country.
The New Zealand Transport Industry has done a fantastic job in developing workplace drug testing policies for drivers. Unfortunately however there are still cases of drivers testing positive for illicit and banned substances. So while anecdotally we are making positive gains in this sector, the issue still rears its head from time to time.
While transport companies are swift to take action when a driver has tested positive for drug use, it is only recently that an increasing number of companies have recognised the need to test their transport units. The reality is that the transport unit is a work place environment and as such it is essential that transport companies are ensuring that their trucks are free of methamphetamine contamination.
Active Testing Solutions has worked hard to establish a testing regime that is cost effective while meeting the Ministry of Health methamphetamine contamination recommendations as well as the NIOSH9111 testing methods. Our testing procedures are industry leading and offer complete peace of mind for transport companies. We will tailor a specific package for your unique needs and work with you to develop policies that will ensure the safety of your staff.
