You need to be aware that not all the security companies in your area can provide you with the level of service that you need.

Most of the large security companies in Brisbane can provide you with complete security solutions for your business or home.

New Security Company And The Implementation of Transition
Upon award of a security contract in Queensland, the security company’s management team should immediately begin performing a security survey at your facility. After completing the survey, they should develop a comprehensive procedures manual which needs to be reviewed with client management for approval.
As for staffing the account, again they should work closely with client management to determine if there are any existing officers they would like to retain at the facility. Once that is determined, they can interview the officers and make certain that they will be willing to conform to your new company’s high standards. At that point they would be hired, and re-trained prior to security services commencing.
All shifts not being filled by existing personnel can be given to the new security company’s own experienced officers. They would then be trained on the procedures at their specific site. Again, by having a number of officers on call, security professionals are able to provide their clients with the service they require on short notice.
Experienced security companies in Brisbane and the Gold Coast provide a variety of reports, depending on what is required at a specific facility. The most commonly used are Incident Reports, Daily Activity Reports, Visitor Logs,  etc. All of the reports can be customised for your facility if required.

Random Drug And Alcohol Testing

Workplace implementation

Employee drug testing is a major part of a drug-free work environment. In addition, employee drug testing can save a company thousands of dollars in sick days, worker’s compensation claims and unemployment benefits. Post-hire employee drug testing can be implemented by a qualified and trusted security company in Brisbane and is a good start for insuring a drug-free workplace.

It is extremely important that employers have a drug and alcohol policy in place and this must be made available to all employees and subcontractors at the workplace it must be clearly defined and each employee or subcontractor sign a compliance form. These days we find that most large companies have there own policies in place which clearly outline the guidelines, procedures and actions. Pre-employment testing is another area in which we can assist.

Rapid 6 Drug Urine Test Cassette

The first type of drug testing is a urine screen and is also known as a urinalysis. This procedure requires the person to provide a urine sample. After the sample has been provided, a test via a drug urine test cassette may be used on-site to detect results immediately or the sample may be sent away to have a series of tests performed on it. Most Security companies use the Microcheck rapid 6 cassette which meet Australian standards cut off levels. in accordance “AS 4308 Procedures for the collection, detection and quantitative of drugs abuse in urine”

  • After an onsite incident
  • If circumstances make it reasonable for a test to occur. For example. A person acting out of character slurring speech or unable to drive plant or machinery due to an altered state.
