In the next podcast: Natasha Jager of the Australian Drug Foundation will join Siobhan and Kevin in conversation about the safety management issues related to alcohol and drugs. We’ll be discussing the legal, business and union perspectives on drug and alcohol testing, and also take a look at what could be the “sleeper issue” – the links between alcohol and drug use and workplace psychological/mental illness issues.
