SYMPTOMS AND EFFECTS of Methamphetamine Exposure

The safety of your employee's or family’s health is paramount. The effects of exposing your family and colleagues to methamphetamine residues include:

  • Headaches
  • Watery or burning eyes
  • Nausea
  • Burning skin
  • Coughing or choking
  • Pain in diaphragm
  • Feeling of coldness or weakness
  • Shortness of breath/dizziness
  • Decrease in cognitive function, vertigo and convulsion


Why Test

There has been a major shift in the management of risks and hazards in the workplace. It is now the duty of the PCBU (Person in Charge of a Business or Undertaking) “to identify hazards that could give rise to reasonably foreseeable risks to Health and Safety.” A lot more focus is now being put on Health as well as Safety.

For employers, staff are tested on the following basis.

  • Random testing
  • Post-incident testing
  • Reasonable cause testing
  • Rehabilitation
  • Pre-employment/pre-contract
  • Internal transfer

Testing is regularly needed for company vehicles, offices, smoko rooms and workshops. While the Police are making every effort to wipe out the manufacture and use of methamphetamine, the fact is that the chemicals needed to manufacture this drug are easily obtainable and have many legitimate uses, making it difficult to put restrictions on their sale and supply. The manufacturers of the drug move around regularly to avoid detection, and in doing so leave in their wake contaminated properties to be purchased or rented out to unsuspecting families and landlords.

It’s estimated that a clandestine methamphetamine lab producing one kilogram of meth creates seven kilograms of toxic by-product (meth pollution), contaminating the property with residue containing carcinogens.


Urine Testing

Urine testing allows the employer to identify employees who are at risk of being impaired at work because of drug use, and who are therefore a potential hazard in the workplace.
This testing may indicate the use of drugs by an employee a sufficient time before commencement or recommencement of work, or use either at work or outside of work hours.
We use a urine screening device which has verification under 'Appendix B' of the AS/NZS 4308:2008 Standard and we believe this device is the best on the market for quick and reliable identification of ‘at risk’ employees in the workplace.
By being fully compliant with the above Standard our clients can be assured that the drug testing we conduct is in strict accordance with the Standard, we have the accreditation to back this up.
Urine testing is now well established and has the greatest range of detectable drugs together with the biggest database of non-reacting substances.
The urine test THC (cannabis), amphetamines, methamphetamine, cocaine, opiates and benzodiazepines.


Cold Hard Facts

While the Police are making every effort to wipe out the manufacture and use of this horrifically addictive drug, methamphetamine, the fact is that the chemicals needed to manufacture this drug are easily obtainable and have many legitimate uses, making it difficult to put restrictions on their sale and supply. The manufacturers of the drug move around regularly to avoid detection, and in doing so leave in their wake contaminated properties to be purchased or rented out to unsuspecting families and landlords.

It’s estimated that a clandestine methamphetamine lab producing one kilogram of meth creates seven kilograms of toxic by-product (meth pollution), contaminating the property with residue containing carcinogens.
The safety of your family’s health is paramount. You need to know what you are exposing your family to.

The health risks and effects of low level surface contamination to individuals has not been widely researched. However, methamphetamine can effect the development of a foetus and infants exposed to methamphetamine are generally smaller, have feeding difficulties, and are described as “very slow”. Individuals exposed to areas with surface contamination are likely to contaminate their hands which will result in oral ingestion, especially in the case of children, but it may also be possible for the drug to penetrate the skin of adults exposed to it.
