Increase in the use of Fentanyl
Dr Dominic Reynolds, Manager Forensic Chemistry Chemcentre, has recently been quoted1 as observing an increase in the detection of the powerful synthetic Opioid Fentanyl.  This is a prescription painkiller that has similar effects to morphine but is 50 to 100 times more potent. The physiological effects can include nausea, confusion, dizziness, hallucinations and suppressed respiration. The most common form of the medication is Durogesic which is usually in the form of a transdermal patch or Actiq (a lozenge). It is usually only prescribed to manage severe and constant pain. Fentanyl can also be abused either by elicit sale of pharmaceuticals or illegal manufacture. It is often sold as a substitute for heroine. read more...

Expertise

The DASA team of Dr David Allen and John De Mellow, provides a powerfully unique knowledge base, combining expertise in occupational medicine, scientific know-how and workplace health, safety and risk management.Our focus on health and safety not just enforcement provides a unique perspective in this area.

Because of their broad expertise, we can provide much more than just onsite testing services. Many of our clients value the detailed assistance and advice we give on a wide range of issues - policy development, communicating expectations, implementing policies, interpreting results, individual case management, as well as training staff in drug and alcohol issues.

These issues are complicated - at times delicate, sensitive, difficult - and always individual.   There is no standard solution for the drug and alcohol problems occurring in workplaces these days. That is why the expertise we have at DASA is so respected by our clients.

DASA – leading with way with expert advice and guidance.

Manufacturing and warehousing can have a high rate of costly work-related injuries -in particular with regard to the operation of machinery and forklifts.  In order to maximise worker safety, minimise risk and potentially reduce workers compensation expenses, a Drug and Alcohol program may assist in identifying potential individuals at risk of injury or accident.  However there can be many stakeholders involved and negotiating an efficient and effective program can face many hurdles.

Construction

The construction industry has a high rate of work-related injuries and is increasingly becoming more regulated. Drug and alcohol testing programs have been identified as useful tools in identifying   individuals that may be at risk of injury or accident. In addition recent regulatory changes such as the Federal Building Code 2013 have highlighted the need for organisations in the construction industry to be across their obligations in regard to drug and alcohol issues.  FWBC Policy from February 2016 requires implementation of drug and alcohol testing for workers involved in all projects that meet a threshold for Commonwealth funding. There are many challenges in this new regime including a workforce that may be mobile and located in small numbers at numerous locations.  DASA is experienced in assisting companies both large and small in implementing an effective and cost efficient program that meets these new obligations.

Government

DASA has been working with local councils to implement cost effective, high quality drug and alcohol programmes for over eight years.  

We understand that government bodies are complex organisations providing a diverse range of services. Waste management, parks maintenance, libraries and child care all require unique solutions when applying an organisation-wide drug and alcohol policy fairly and consistently.  In addition, size and location often require innovative solutions to unique requirements.

We take the time to understand these unique requirements and we work with you to develop the right solution.   Whether it be drug and alcohol policy, education or testing, our understanding, partnership approach and flexibility mean we can easily customise our service to meet the many and varied needs of government organisations.

Over many years working with councils and other government bodies, we know that a drug and alcohol programme is more likely to be effective if it includes the following four elements.   These are critical to success and we work with you to ensure they are in place.

DASA leads the way in:


•    Effective education and training programme  

•    A clear focus on health and safety rather than social intervention 

•    Flexibility in the ability to test in any location at any time 

•    A well-documented quality audited process which is compatible with the council’s other processes
