DrugWipe – not just THE police roadside deterrent, now scaling new heights as a deterrent to employee drug misuse!
Police have been using the D.Tec International Limited supplied DrugWipe 3S rapid roadside screener as a fast, effective means of detecting drug drivers at the roadside since the new drug drive law was introduced in March 2015. All 43 police forces across England & Wales now see the DrugWipe as a vital tool for deterring drug misuse amongst drivers and that includes the fleet / logistics sector.
Aswell as the great work that D.Tec International undertake with the police forces, they have seen a huge transformation and willingness from private companies to implement robust Drugs & Alcohol policies and most importantly screening their employees, particularly those who may undertake safety critical roles.
Companies who employ drivers have a huge corporate responsibility to ensure that their drivers are not impaired through drink or drugs and to this end the DrugWipe device is a fantastic means of achieving this! What better way to build the deterrent than using the same brand as the police?
The major benefit for a safety conscious company is that D.Tec can train that companies staff to use DrugWipe and breathalysers onsite, as they are quick, clean, inoffensive and simple to use. Another major plus point is that the results of both drug and alcohol screen can be declared in just five minutes allowing you to immediately ground a potentially impaired employee before they have chance to do any damage.
Cannabis use amongst UK adults aged 15 – 34 is at 11.5% in 2018.* This somewhat shocking fact shows how popular drug use is. This is the resource pool you have to recruit from!!
Another commonly shown statistic related to workers and drug use is that 1 in 10 admit to recent drug use*
The DrugWipe solution offers a non-intrusive solution to the innocent majority of employees whilst being a credible device that is universally accepted as the ‘global leader in roadside drug driver screening’ and will highlight that not so innocent minority in your company.
D.Tec International Limited advocate and also offer educational awareness training courses and secondary laboratory confirmation testing following any screening positives.
