For over 16 years the founders of Drug-Safe Australia Pty Ltd have led the alcohol and other drug screening industry in addressing substance abuse across Australia and the South Pacific.
During this period, the business concentrated upon the needs of National and Multi National clients who had a need to ensure their workforce was protected from the growing abuse of substances such as:
- and more recently methamphetamine.
We addressed all accreditation requirements such as ISO 9001 and were the first on-site organisation to meet the stringent NATA accreditation.
Whilst we have been very successful in developing our systems and clients, we have identified a pressing need to have a broad coverage of field officers across Australia who are enthusiastically supportive of the Company’s objectives and ideals but at a regional level.
To address this, we decided to create Drug-Safe Australia as a separate franchising entity that can nurture and harness the enthusiastic nature of regional individuals who wish to make a difference within their own community in addition to the more traditional client base for drug testing.
A Personal Story
One morning I turned up for work and wondered where my business partner was. Several hours later I discovered why he didn’t appear. He had been found dead in an alley way at Kings Cross with a needle still in his arm. He had died of a heroin overdose.
I had no idea that he had a drug addiction. We had been working together for 15 years. How was it that he had managed to keep it a secret from me?
The shock of this tragic discovery worsened when I found out he had been fiddling the books in order to pay for his habit. He had taken more than $300,000 from the company account.
No matter how well you think you know someone…you don’t.
The story above is not just any story. It is the story of Drug-Safe’s founder Michael White.
The events destroyed his then-business. It was the reason he created Drug-Safe Australia and made it his mission to help companies like yours avoid similar tragedies.
One person, one incident could ruin a business forever.
Not to mention the lives impacted of employees, families and depending on the incident even random members of the public.
It is our mission to help people avoid such tragic incidents from impacting or destroying their livelihoods.
Our franchise and trainers will help equip you to make a profound difference to the companies and people you work with.
