ABC have just posted an article on their website regarding the use of synthetic urine products on Queensland minesites. The article highlighted the dangers of allowing employees to work in dangerous occupations where impaired judgement could cause serious injury to themselves or their fellow workmates and products such as Quick Fix and the Monkey Dongs make it near impossible to catch out these employees. Synthetic Urine Australia in no way endorses the use of any illicit substance while working in dangerous environments and completely agree with the opinion of the people in the article. We do not ever endorse people working while actually being affected by any sort of substance. That being said - some substances which will impair someone for 12 hours may be detectable in the body for up to 60 days. In this situation work places should really adopt oral testing to accurately detect workers affected by drugs at time of test and the use of Synthetic Urine in these situations is only serving to protect ones privacy of what they do in their own spare time. 

Remember guys, if you want to work while high on anything, mining is not the job for you.

Drug tests if you’re on the dole

Posted by Synthetic Urine Australia on September 07, 2014 0 Comments

DRUG testing for the unemployed and the suspension of payments to people with outstanding arrest warrants are two options to be debated in a major overhaul of welfare.

 

The Abbott Government has confirmed it is looking closely at New Zealand’s welfare system, which includes a hardline approach to drug use.

The New Zealand model strips welfare recipients of half their payments if they fail a job-required drug test or refuse to submit to one.

They are then given 30 days to get clean. Those who continue to use drugs or refuse to take a job that requires testing are required to pay back their welfare payments.

Social Services Minister Kevin Andrews last night said: “We won’t rule this in or out.”

But the testing has been attacked as a waste of money by critics in New Zealand with low rates of positive results.

Of the 8001 jobseekers sent for drug testing, only 22 had tested positive to drug use or had refused to take tests.

Mr Andrews yesterday cautioned it would be more difficult to introduce in Australia because it would require the support of the states.

“While Australia’s welfare system is different from New Zealand, its reforms provide a guide as to the government’s thinking on simplifying our welfare system,” he said.

The Abbott government has confirmed it is also looking closely at New Zealand’s “simpler, more coherent” system of streamlining payments.

“Australia’s welfare system is complex and expensive,” Mr Andrews said.

“This review will look at welfare reforms overseas, including New Zealand where they have simplified their welfare system by introducing five new payments that replaced eleven old payments.”

Welfare groups angry about budget cuts

The streamlined New Zealand payment system now includes a new Jobseeker Support payment for those actively seeking work, Sole Parent Support for single parents with children aged under 14 years, and Supported Living Payments for people significantly restricted by sickness, injury or disability.

A report by Patrick McClure into options for reforms to Australia’s welfare system will be released shortly.

“There are around 20 different payments (in Australia) that are topped up with around 50 different supplements, including Family Tax Benefits and Carer Allowance, costing taxpayers around $100 billion annually,” Mr Andrews said.

“To make this work requires more than 3500 pages of legislation and more than 640 pages of endnotes to administer the social security system.”

Labor’s Jenny Macklin said welfare simplification was code for more cuts.

“Tony Abbott needs to explain to low-income Australians — already reeling from the Budget — exactly what his next round of cuts will mean for them,” she said.

“This year’s Budget has already ripped billions of dollars out of the pockets of low-income Australians.

“It will leave millions of vulnerable people worse off.

“Yet the government is already looking to its next round of cuts.”

20 new drug testing machines now in the hands of WA Police

http://www.perthnow.com.au/news/western-australia/new-drug-testing-machines-now-in-the-hands-of-wa-police/story-fnhocxo3-1227012743906?nk=453620009414f964d557e230c2797171

"More than $1.3 million has been spent upgrading WA Police’s drug testing capabilities

through the purchase of 20 Dräger drug analyser machines.

The new machines will be available to regional officers as well as metropolitan cops.

The $1.3 million has also been spent on new mouth swab kits which can give officers preliminary drug test results in just 3-5 minutes.

“The enhanced capability to conduct drug tests and apprehend drug driving offenders will

contribute to the reduction of people killed and seriously injured in crashes that involve drug

impaired drivers,” WA Police said in a statement issued today.

Drivers found to have illegal drugs in their system can be fined up to $500 and cop three demerit points

Those found to be impaired by illicit drugs while driving can be fined up to $2500 and

be banned from the roads for a minimum of 10 months.

State Traffic Enforcement Superintendent Mike Peters said the message about drug driving is simple:

“Don’t take illicit drugs or any other drugs which may impair your driving,” he said.

“Don’t allow friends to drive if you suspect they may have taken drugs, just as you

would stop them from drink-driving.” "
