Methcon have provided on-site drug education and training programmes to some of New Zealand's largest companies, government departments and organisations for over ten years.
Our aim is to help staff and supervisors create healthier and safer workplace environments by creating a meaningful platform for understanding and strategising. We offer an informative programme which helps in assessing potential risks from both an HR perspective and for bottom line profitability.
These training programmes provide staff with a comprehensive understanding of methamphetamine and other addictive drugs, their effects and impact on the user, their lives and their employment, and how to recognise the tell-tale signs of use and manufacture.
In addition to the General Awareness training material, we ensure that all supervisors and managers understand the impact of methamphetamine and other commonly abused drugs in the organisation, and how to recognise, respond to, and prevent staff members from using drugs and manage those that do. This is tied in with your organisation’s health and safety and drug and alcohol policy.
We provide specialist training for staff that could be at risk of exposure to the dangers of a Meth Lab. Participants will learn about the manufacturing process, what to look for and what to do if they discover a lab during the course of their work.
‘Thank you for giving me the opportunity to attend the best seminar that I have attended since being with this organisation. It will certainly provide me with a good knowledge of what to look for while doing my job. Top presenter, and will certainly be recommending others to attend his courses.’
‘The best 4 hour presentation I've ever attended. The quality & content was very easy to understand, had high impact and kept my focus and interest. The balance between DVD/commentary & demo was great and the hand out material was excellent.’
‘The visual presentation of videos, resources were excellent. I have been to a number of Drug & Alcohol seminars, and the content has always been around facts and figures, boring stuff! This presentation was informative, enlightening and definitely useful in terms of my role when visiting whanau in rural areas.’
"As I commented before this course was a real eye opener. They were very knowable about the drug and I like the way they showed the effects on the users and the people around them. It was an awesome course and I hope that more people get to experience it!"
‘The presentation gave an excellent overview of the problem and a good awareness of what to look out for. This should be something that all staff and their families have access to viewing. The training is perfect as it is a real eye opener.’
‘The comments from the staff since your presentation have been nothing but positive and have certainly now given them the confidence and the professionalism in dealing with possible customers affected by this drug, but more importantly the dangers or indicators to look out for when they do visit properties. I would like also to let you know that since your training the region now has a zero tolerance towards 'P' and we will be enforcing this rain, hail or shine.’
“You explored key issues facing our young people of today in any society and highlighted the implications this lethal drug can have on our community. Your ability to mix light humour with pertinent and somewhat sombre facts helped with the processing of this information. On behalf of our school community we would like to sincerely thank you, Dale, for this well received presentation about Methamphetamine. Thank you again for taking the time out of your schedule and evening to share your knowledge in this way.”
We attended your talk in Timaru yesterday - WOW it was so informative, eye opening & empowering.
It was very timely actually as last week we had a tenant evicted for non payment of rent & turns out the reason for this was she was dealing meth, we had only had this tenant since October last year, and it all went downhill at New Year when she met the wrong guy, had her kids taken off her & everything, we turned up to evict her & the police were there doing a raid....enough for supply. Found out today that our Meth Test was way below, which was a big positive.
We can now go into properties with our eyes wide open & what signs to look for. Just really wanted to say how much we enjoyed it & keep up the amazing work.
“Dale’s presentation was provocative and engaging. We have had great feedback from many who attended. The content provided a foundation of what to look for around methamphetamine usage, particularly in homes with children, and was backed up with relevant statistics for our region. Insightful, informative and interesting – a must for the wellbeing of families, and those working with them in their homes.”
I just wanted to say how interesting and informative I found your presentations on meth awareness last week. It was supportive, incredibly interesting, thought provoking and answered all of my questions about the effect meth use would have on someone's health. To be honest the session totally exceeded my expectations. So thank you for taking the time to visit us in Dunedin.
Take care and thank you again.
I learnt so much. I felt that I got really educated and will now have the information I need to pass onto my children.
