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.
