Education and Training Services
Providing your team with proper safety training and information is a key indicator of safety performance.
Despite this, as much as 30% of workers have not had such training in their current role.
As a Registered Training Organisation (RTO 40379) Medvet offer a number of purpose-built courses, including the nationally-recognised 10440NAT Course in On-site Drug and Alcohol Testing.
With our depth of expertise assisting employers develop and implement safety programs, we have courses to address drug and alcohol use in the workplace at all levels:
- Employee awareness, suitable for all members of your organisation
- Reasonable cause training, to help supervisors identify and act on unsafe behaviour
- On-site drug and alcohol testing training, teaching Australian Standards-compliant processes and requirements to ensure enforceable results.
Employee Awareness Education
Most Australians have some idea of how drugs and alcohol affect them, but far fewer have participated in proper seminars about their health. This means there may be significant knowledge gaps within your team. Medvet's trainers can provide your employees with up-to-date knowledge on the safety implications of improper use of drugs and alcohol, in an open forum. These sessions also walk staff through the drug testing process, as well as provide an opportunity for your leaders to discuss your drug and alcohol policy, setting out your expectations.
Reasonable Cause Training for Supervisors
If a worker is suspected of being impacted by drugs or alcohol, how do your leaders respond? Medvet has developed this unique training course to help them identify, document, and respond to unsafe behaviour. During the session we discuss how to make 'reasonable suspicion' determinations before taking action. We can attend your workplace and train all supervisors how to appropriately intervene and ensure workplace safety.
10440NAT Course in On-site Drug and Alcohol Testing
On-site drug and alcohol testing requires specific knowledge, if the Collector needs to meet Australian Standards, and ensure unbroken chain of custody for samples. Medvet offers public and private (your workplace-only) courses in the only nationally-recognised course of its kind.
Each of these courses is available on-site at your workplace, Australia wide. Medvet also offers our nationally-recognised 10440NAT Course in On-site Drug and Alcohol Testing to the public nationally, so anyone can improve their skills and safety knowledge.
Medvet can also provide online courses in a broader range of safety topics, so your entire team can benefit from new knowledge no matter where they are.
