Major Infrastructure, Road and Rail Projects
First Choice Diagnostic Co collectors are very experienced working on project sites and understanding the challenges and demands in conducting an onsite testing session with time/weather and unpredictable elements that operate in an outside site environment. We have collectors already Rail-Safety trained and ticketed. Often such rail projects require special handling as the projects must adjust to the changes thrust upon the project team by the different national and state government bodies in addition to the industry-specific legislation that is introduced as well. First Choice Diagnostic Co can educate your staff to help them understand the local and state or national legislation that governs the way you manage your projects and engender the co-operation you need to get on with the projects thus avoiding unnecessary delays.

With several large infrastructure projects underway within the state and the nation, and more coming online, many of these projects have a drug and alcohol policy in place. Drug use within Australia remains on the incline, with more industries mandating drug testing within their legislation to ensure a safe workplace culture.

Across Australia, there are a number of Acts or Regulations that govern the use of alcohol and drugs in the workplace, this legislation is generally applicable to safety critical jobs, however this landscape is changing to now encompass non-safety critical roles also.
