Uniting Workplace Drug Testing Providers

Advancing common goals and driving positive change

Australia’s Peak Industry Body for the Workplace Drug Testing Industry

The Workplace Drug Testing Association (WDTA) is the Peak National Body representing the broad interests of the workplace drug testing sector in Australia.

In fact, any organisations (public or private) with an interest in workplace drug testing can apply for associate membership with our Association. This can provide an invaluable resource to keep up to date with the latest changes in Compliance, technology and equipment.

    Where our Association is striving hard to maintain a long-lasting relationship with its existing members, we warmly welcome new members to join our Association.

    What We Do

    We represent the interests of our Membership to help establish and uphold quality frameworks that support professional drug testing service delivery. We do this through participation on various Standards Committees and developing our own supporting guidelines designed to fill operational gaps and address technical issues in existing Standards.

    We also provide information to organisations who are considering introducing a drug and alcohol program about key issues to consider and effective solutions that can be considered.

    What We Don’t Do

    The Association (itself) does not directly provide any drug testing services. The Association members do provide these services and support functions (including supplying equipment, developing policies and providing education programs).

    Testimonials

    Here’s what our happy members had to say about our services:

    Royal Medical Supplies joined the WDTA due to frustration with the existing standards and relevant accreditation bodies. The WDTA is a welcome collective of highly experienced drug testing organisations and individuals and I highly recommend this association to anyone in the workplace drug testing industry.

    Royal Medical Supplies Pty Ltd

    We joined WDTA because we felt it was important to be part of a united industry body, promoting the interests of members for compliance and dealings with various government agencies. WDTA has quickly established a foothold in this regard with representation on various Australian Standards Committees and presentations to the Senate.

    Fit 4 Duty Pty Ltd

    Safework Laboratories has been a member for the WDTA since its inception in 2017. We felt that there was a need to have an industry body that represented those organisations that do onsite workplace drug testing and SWL has been delighted to see the interest in our new association as well as the high profile it has achieved. In the short existence of the WDTA, it has been an influential advisor and committee member advising on new Australian Standards that are directly applicable to workplace drug testing, it has been asked to present to a Senate Enquiry as well other political events, but equally importantly it has provided a forum whereby those companies that work in this space can interact and work in a collaborative way to support and help each other on areas of mutual interest.
