Workplace Drug Testing and the Dräger DrugCheck® 3000

There is an ongoing debate about the use of drug testing in the workplace. Those in favour say it reduces risk and accidents in the workplace - while those against say it can be an imposition on workers’ private lives.

Obviously it is important to have a happy medium - and with the increasing use of ‘oral fluid’ testing (through saliva) to check for drugs in the system - employers can now find out within minutes if a person has drugs in his or her system.

Workplace Insurance

Workplace insurance is important for employers and employees alike. Workplace hazards are a major cause of accidents – and can also lead to higher workers’ compensation and insurance costs.
As a business owner, it is of course, hugely important to educate all of your workers about possible hazards in order to control and minimise their incidence and severity.

Importance of WHS

Apart from the obvious injuries and death, penalties and compensation associated with workplace incidents, there are significant indirect costs when WHS systems fail. Poor safety performance can have a large impact on business operation and performance - often as a result of reduced productivity and low morale.

How to Nurture and Keep Employees

Keeping and nurturing top talent can be quite a challenge in today’s volatile and ever-changing job market.

Top employees want a rewarding and satisfying job that stimulates and challenges them. They also want good opportunities for career advancement - and clear paths to promotions.

The Importance of Talent Screening and Diversity in the Hiring Process

When recruiting, it is important to remember that the definition of talent is not always clear-cut.

Of course, some skills, such as EI (Emotional Intelligence) and others, are valuable for any organisation. However, real talent is always relative to the organisation itself – along with its current and future needs, and specific job criteria and situation.
