SA Water – Review of Drug and Alcohol Procedure

02 May 2017

This will cover all employees and is anticipated to commence in late 2017 following the engagement of an external accredited provider to deliver education and awareness for employees and to provide expertise in relation to testing.

SA Water advised the CPSU/PSA that they will consult with employees and unions regarding:

  •     How they will deliver drug and alcohol education for all employees.
  •     How the testing would be done.
  •     What the acceptable blood alcohol limit would be.
  •     How they will help employees, and appropriate options for support, counselling and rehabilitation services.
  •     Confidentiality of information.

The PSA will continue to keep members updated and will consult further with members when any proposals or further information is received.
