I found the D&A talk extremely good and the format excellent. I particularly enjoyed working with other employers to analyse real cases – it certainly reinforced the importance of good policies and procedures! I felt on leaving, better prepared to…manage our Company D & A policies and procedures.
The D&A pilot program has been a great success. The Work Options system is built specifically for our industry and so has fitted in very easily with our business. I think the way they worked with us and our employees to set the procedure up correctly from the very start has been a key factor in why we have had very few problems. In turn, our employees have responded magnificently and taken the concepts onboard really well – at the end of the day its about a safe working environment, and our people get that.
National Compliance & Development Manager,
The Board…instructed me…to enlist a company to provide and manage a Drug & Alcohol System…I interviewed several companies and made a decision to appoint one of these…we had problems from the outset…and I was directed to speak to you by a joint venture partner…A decision was then made to dismiss our original provider and to enlist the services of Work Options. Our initial discussions were very informative and the Policy and Procedures that were presented to Ward were concise and easily understood. A number of training sessions were then organised throughout NSW and interstate. This training was conducted very professionally by a member of your staff who was able to answer all the questions asked and discuss a number of scenarios…It was very pleasing to see that the implementation of the system was conducted in such a smooth and efficient manner.
