Board24 is safety-con- scious and proactive- ly working to ensure a safe workplace for all,” said Alex Morris, Managing Director, Board24. “We’ve pur- chased an Intelligent Fingerprinting drug screening system for

each of our three sites, and have an internal goal to com- plete 12 months of random tests. Introduced at the start of February, our new drug policy is to randomly test across the business – ranging from employees on the manufac- turing production floor to fork-lift drivers, as well as all company car drivers. We want to show that we’re commit- ted to improving safety right across the business, not just on-site but also for our extended workplace.” “Teamwork is key during our manufacturing process where employees work with partners around big, industri- al machinery,” Morris continued. “In this environment you need your designated partner to be ‘on the ball’ as you rely on them to work safely with potentially dangerous cor- rugators, casemakers or fork-lifts. With broader drug use now more prevalent than five years ago, we don’t want any staff to be in a position where they are relying on a colleague who is under the influence of drugs.” “Intelligent Fingerprinting’s innovative approach was both the simplest and easiest method on the market. With a unit at each site, and various Board24 employees trained to use the system, the Intelligent Fingerprinting drug test will, for the first time, enable us to test as part of our random drug test policy whenever we feel the need, under suspicion or post-accident quickly and easily – in our warehouse for example, we could test a driver of a fork lift truck immediately.” Dr. Paul Yates of Intelligent Fingerprinting adds, “Adop- tion of fingerprint drug testing is growing in the UK work- place as organizations realize just how easy and cost-ef- fective it is to use. “ Visit .
