Want to know how to promote a drug smart workplace culture while meeting your Health & Safety obligations?
Drug Smart seminars by Methcon help you create a drug free and compliant workplace. Since 2005, we’ve provided drug education to businesses like yours throughout New Zealand, helping create a proactive approach to drug education and safety. At Methcon, we help you and your staff recognise the negative impact drugs have on our whole lives – not just at work. Our seminars are designed to create a holistic attitude to drugs which in turn benefits our families, whanau and communities.
Drug policies – your business, your responsibility
Whether you have several staff or whether you’re a sole trader, you’re required to comply with NZ workplace safety legislation. The Health & Safety at Work Act 2015 states that employers must have appropriate policies related to drugs in place, and that all staff are responsible for ensuring the workplace is safe for everyone.
Cost effective seminars to keep you Drug Smart
This is where Methcon come in. We’re NZ’s only specialist drug education company who are passionate about changing workplace culture around drugs. We believe that education is the key to this change, so we’ve made drug education seminars accessible to businesses of all sizes.

We understand that for smaller businesses it’s often not practical to send all your staff on training at once. That’s why we offer monthly seminars in the major centres throughout NZ, giving you the option of sending one person at a time.
This gives you peace of mind that your staff are all on the same page, while minimising disruption to your business.
What we do
We’ve designed seminars to help you and your management team develop drug policies, remove ignorance as an excuse, educate your staff on the real impact of drugs and give you the tools to create a proactive, drug smart culture in your workplace.
Our training will be delivered by experienced former police detectives and educators and will cover the following aspects:
- Ways to create a create a zero-tolerance workplace culture
- the impact of a range of drugs such as methamphetamine, cannabis, alcohol, MDMA, synthetic cannabis and cocaine
- how to recognise when someone is under the influence of drugs
- ways to raise any concerns around drug use with employers or supervisors
Creating the right workplace environment through trust
You may be surprised to know that Methcon doesn’t carry out drug testing.
The ultimate goal of our seminars is to develop a culture where drugs simply aren’t tolerated in any workplace. The best way to do this is through establishing trust with trainees and to get them to engage with the material in a positive learning atmosphere. We’ve found that this is a more effective method to get your staff to buy into the idea of a drug free workplace culture.
