Workers in the waste management industry are often shift workers involved in time critical operations, working with heavy vehicles and machinery. As such they are at high risk of injury or accident.  In order to maximise worker safety, minimise risk and potentially reduce workers compensation expenses, a workplace drug and alcohol program may assist in identifying potential individuals at risk of injury or accident. 


However, implementing a drug and alcohol program for operators in the waste sector can be challenging. Often waste organisations operate 24/7, typically across an expansive network, including small sites in remote locations and operations are time critical. At DASA, we understand these issues and work with you to ensure your drug and alcohol program not only meets your unique operational needs but does so in a cost effective manner. DASA also understands that ongoing education and training is critical to ensuring the workforce understands its obligations. We have a range of the most up to date educational and training material delivered in a variety of formats to suit all workplaces. 


We deliver knowledge, partnership and results to waste management organisations in the following ways:

  • Fail safe 24/7 1300 on call co-ordination service

  • Dedicated on call collectors who can arrive within the hour for post incident and cause testing

  • Testing can be done roadside 

  • Qualified and experienced staff including collectors who are directly employed by DASA

  • Testing is conducted discretely 

  • Fast Laboratory confirmation
