Master Builders Australia has welcomed the phased approach to implementing the drug and alcohol fitness for work amendments for the construction industy under the Building Code 2013.

The fitness for work amendments under the Building Code 2013 came into effect on Friday 16 October and mean that contractors should have a comprehensive policy for managing drug and alcohol issues in the workplace. Part of this policy includes mandatory drug and alcohol testing on Commonwealth funded projects.

Fair Work Building and Construction will be responsible for monitoring compliance with the new code and will approach the auditing of drug and alcohol testing requirements in 3 stages.
