Alcohol and other Drugs Testing Program


Drake Safety provides “Indicative” alcohol and other drugs testing (minimum of 5 tests per session), to identify any potential breach of the companies Alcohol and other drugs policy. The testing program is conducted by one of the 20 Drake personnel nationally, certified to conduct such testing.


The equipment used to conduct the testing is police grade breathalysers and a 6 panel illicit oral fluid drug testing kit. An indicative test result is achieved within 10 minutes following the sample being collected.  Where a non-negative (positive) result is identified, the collector will follow the company’s Alcohol and other drugs policy or Drake International policy and procedures or whichever is more stringent.

All policies, procedures and consent and collection forms have been legally approved to ensure the integrity of the testing program. All results are determined in a confidential manner in accordance with the relevant Australian Standards

  •  Random testing
  • Pre Employment testing
