Kevan Barclay, store manager for PAKnSAVE Gisborne, says both management and team members appreciate the huge input from Ann-louise Anderson in establishing a drug policy and explaining it clearly to them all.

“She offered the solution we wanted right off the bat. We run some high risk equipment here and a night team who work around it too, so we wanted to make sure they are all safe. Ann-louise offered us what we felt was the best solution in saliva testing and we felt we hit the need of the business without persecuting the person. What they do on their weekends is their choice, but we should be able to guarantee that our team are safe.”

Using an external provider added another layer of confidence for the staff.

Eastland Group’s Jarred Moroney felt Ann-louise’s review of the company’s oral fluid policy had been spot on.

“I believe the whole testing process is quicker than urine because you have no delays – everyone has saliva. There is no issue with cheating because it is an observed sample. The DT 5000 takes out any subjectiveness – the machine is doing the analyzing of the sample and giving the result. So we are not reliant on someone looking to see if there is a line or not. Ann-louise’s knowledge is wide – she is involved with standards.
She understands the products and services and having that scientific background means if we have a hard question, she can answer it ore put hand on someone who can. For us it is peace of mind.”
