We have considerable expertise in the investigation of serious drug offending. We have successfully helped companies resolve major drug problems in their workplaces. We can help you fix drug problems in yours. Please call us to discuss any drug-related matter.

DRUGSCENE designs and delivers customised drug awareness training to suit your needs. Rather than a “one size fits all” approach, we prefer to personalise our training for each client. We discuss what you’d like to achieve, offer suggestions, look at various options and then we’ll come up with an awesome training package. We charge for the delivery of training, not for preparation time so there’s no extra cost to you.

DRUGSCENE delivers training for managers, supervisors and staff. From a one hour session on the dangers of P to a comprehensive two day workshop, DRUGSCENE will improve the health and safety of your staff and help you reduce the risks of drugs and alcohol in your workplace.

In addition to our customised training, we offer two “flagship” courses.


This course is for decision makers. It is designed for managers and supervisors to arm you with the knowledge and skills to effectively reduce the risks caused by drugs and alcohol. It features an in-depth look at how drug dealers operate in the workplace and shows how to stop them. There is comprehensive coverage about methamphetamine, cannabis and alcohol and “must-know” information about signs of drug use, approaching a worker under the influence, OSH legislation in relation to drugs and alcohol and the legal requirements of drug testing.
