The Oxygen Tank Draggers

The Oxygen Tank DraggersWe have all known, or at least seen, the individuals who from middle age and onward must drag an oxygen tank behind them wherever they go. This is because their lungs are so deteriorated from smoking that they are unable to pull in and process as much oxygen as everyone else’s lungs.

In other words, they cannot physically function without the oxygen that they are dragging around behind them. Of course, all of this started with either cigarettes or drug abuse, but drug abuse is just as likely to cause cancer in the lungs as some of the tar found in some cigarettes. In addition to that, drug abuse has been linked to respiratory problems, as has severe and chronic alcoholism.

Now, obviously anyone who is dragging an oxygen tank behind them is not very marketable and does not appear very competent in the workplace. Naturally, you would wish your employees to be a little more developed than that. Try out our drug test equipment for your employee drug testing. Alcohol tests and drug testing is part of keeping your other, non-abusing employees safe. In fact, screening tests are really the only way to ensure that employees are following company policy concerning drug testing, since verbal confirmation cannot be entirely, or scientifically, trusted.

Obviously, we here at CMM Technology are not prejudiced against anyone with a disability. It is, however, recommended that the oxygen tank draggers should be closely examined for employment, since a history of compulsive self sabotage has already been established and is openly available for the public to see. That is another thing about employees who exhibit lack of self control from their younger years. Their credibility is ruined with professional clientele.

All parts of your business must be kept well maintained and intact. There must be set standards, and your employees, who work for you, must maintain those standards within and among themselves.

With the amount of help which is available for recovering addicts, including but not limited to employee assistance programs set up within companies, there really is no excuse for allowing abusive behavior to enter your own workplace.

The Income of Loners

In Daniel Goleman’s book, “Social Intelligence,” he describes how people should be able to get along with each other quite easily, and why many ofThe Income of Loners them do not. Understanding socialized behavior is one of the best ways to improve your business standards and your business output.

After all, no company wishes to drop quality just to focus on quantity. There must be enough quantity, of course, but the quality of the product or service is what really determines how long the company will be in business. You must be able to sustain the quality of work you absolutely think that you’re capable of producing, and you must be in a position where you can improve that quality when you think of how to do it.

Running a company is hard. Anyone who has ever done it knows this. However, it is much more difficult if your staff is not socially educated and adept at all of their positions. There must be a socialization structure to your company, or loners will be allowed to sit in their back hovels and become even more isolated over the years.

The income of loners on average is twenty percent less than the income of socially adept individuals. Why is this the case?

It has to do with how comfortable some people feel around coworkers and subordinates who are loner type of people. Unfortunately, just about any manager or executive is socially adept, so you will not find many loners who are in positions of power. If you are a loner yourself, than your currently isolated positioning within the company can be to your detriment.

Loners also happen to be more likely to engage in drug and alcohol abuse while on the job. This is because the stress of being around other people, even in their positions which tend to be more withdrawn, is too much and they feel far too much pressure.

However, just as with any muscle, exercising your social muscles is more likely to make you feel confident in public situations and in uncomfortable positions with other people. CMM Technology brings this level of evaluation to your doorstep with our drug tests kits, featuring our LifeLoc FC10 breathalyser and our Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6. These can be excellent parts of your business today. Order now: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Private Education at Home

Drug test equipmentEducation at your house is some of the most powerful learning that you can have. Education requires a dedicated time spent on learning and experiencing new things. When not restrained by deadlines and when internally motivated to get things done, rather than being coaxed and prodded along a specific course plan, self education is one of the most valuable ways to build self esteem and self respect.

This is because any sustained and carefully planned betterment of the self acts powerfully upon self esteem and the respect we hold for ourselves. It is the same as when you cultivate growth in a garden, causing the plants to grow better and stronger and larger.

Self education can get a bad rap if it is tied to online higher education colleges. There is still somewhat of a stigma about getting an online education from an online university. However, simply reading and educating yourself without a formal course structure is considered the actions of an intellectual.

Original thought is necessary in business.

You cannot successfully navigate even the most mundane of jobs without using original thought. However, drug and alcohol abuse can modify and warp original thought into very unproductive states.

CMM Technology provides drug test equipment, along with breathalyser recalibration service, to businesses throughout Australia. We help you make your company part of a growth process, where your employees learn instead of become lethargic. Employee drug testing is extremely effective for determining who is fit for duty and who is leaving themselves behind. Our ToxSure saliva drug test definitely takes care of this need. You can evaluate your employees using a scientific method, rather than guesswork and subjective opinions. This leads to honest results, not just evaluations based upon personal bias. It is so important to keep everything straightforward, so that your decisions can be made based upon facts, and not someone else’s fiction.

Personal education involves both objectivity and subjectivity. Employees who are not fit for duty can be hazardous to your company, and this should be determined through objective methods. After that, your decisions based upon those drug testing results can be as subjective as you would like them to be. Call CMM Technology today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Power Plays by the Powerless

When powerless individuals who really feel their helplessness seek revenge, the results can be devastating. We are not talking about blowing things up or Urine drug testannihilating entire blocks of a city, but on a more personal level than that. Powerless people cause a lot of destruction when they do not understand how to build themselves back up on the inside, which is the only way to regain power, by the way.

The first power play to expect is that of victimhood. Complaining about what they are not getting and about who is not treating them fairly is the habit of the novice weakling.

Secondly, they are likely to engage in some vicious gossip. This does not have to necessarily be about anyone in particular, as long as someone else’s reputation is hurt, and they look better for telling everyone about it. It is important to go from prey to predator in their minds, because weakness is not tolerated at this particular level.

After a powerless individual evolves for a while, they may be able to cover their tracks a lot better, and really look good while spreading their lies around. This means that they must be nice a good fifty percent of the time in order to look benevolent and friendly, and they will begin to ask subtler questions in public which really hit someone’s reputation a lot harder, especially in the eyes of authority figures in the company.

Lastly, the ultimate backlash of a powerless individual comes when they actually achieve a high ranking position, but are still pulling the same abuse of what little power they possess, just as they did previously. Good employees will end up leaving the company, while bad employees may become corrupt.

All of your employees should feel empowered, and this is done when they are safe and protected. Employee drug testing is a crucial part in making sure that your workers are fit for duty and responsible during their time at work. Drug test kits, like our Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6, are specially designed with adulterant tests so that nobody can cheat on these tests. Also, try our oral fluid drug tests.

Keeping Your Money and Your Friends Separate

Keeping Your Money and Your Friends SeparatePart of being friends with someone involves the give-and-take process. You must be willing to give some of your time, resources and attention to your friend, as well as take their contributions. If you are unable to engage in this give-and-take process, then you may be seen as either a doormat or too proud and arrogant.

Whatever happens, there is a limit to what you can give to your friends. Anyone who demands what they cannot give in return is engaging in partially dysfunctional behavior. There must be an even trade in resources and friendship. Protecting your money when your buddies come calling can be one of the wisest decisions you engage in.

The same applies for companies. When a business distributes more than it pulls in, then it can quickly go broke. That is obviously not the correct way of doing business. You must be able to contribute to your employees a proper compensation for their time and work, but no one should be asking you to give them twice as much as what they actually contribute. This is why, even though managers and executives may trust and really enjoy the company of their employees, they still engage in employee drug testing. It is the responsible thing to do. Our ToxSure saliva drug test is the proof of this. Our LifeLoc FC10 breathalyser is also evidence. We pride ourselves on our adulterant tests built right in to our drug test kits. We think that drug testing in Western Australia is better because of our products, and we are prepared to prove it to anyone who is interested.

Employees must be fit for duty, no matter how much you trust them or have made them your friends, and this involves passing urine drug tests and breathalyser results. Some companies use oral fluid drug tests, and we provide those, as well. We really enjoy how many companies consider us a reliable source for drug test equipment.

Keeping your money and your friends separate is best for both your asset protection and all of your friendships. Obviously, if someone is allowed to take advantage of you, the two of you are not friends anymore. Set a business standard with employee drug testing. Call CMM Technology today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Helping Someone in Summer

Summertime is not often thought of as a dangerous time of the year. Usually, winter with snow and hail and icy streets is considered to be the more Helping Someone in Summerfraught with peril. However, in extreme heat, summer can be just as dangerous if not more so. Many people do not pay attention to their lack of hydration throughout the day, and the heat can come upon your quite quickly. Heat exhaustion occurs when the body has been exposed to heat, especially direct sunlight, to such an extent that it cannot cool off before it must deal with more heat being soaked up by the body. Just like with a car engine, if enough heat is developed that the body is not able to offset any of it, then the person will most likely pass out. That is why it is so important to keep cold water on hand in summertime.

Sometimes, employees are tempted to drink alcohol in the summertime at work because of the nice cold wetness of the beer and so forth. However, this is a misconception. While the beer will cool your body off, temperature wise, all alcohol has a drying effect upon the tissues. In essence, it will temporarily cool your tissues, but it will have a longer lasting dehydrating effect upon you, which will lead to dangerous conditions if left in the sun for any longer period of time.

If your employees have outdoor work to be done, cool them off with iced juice, water, or flavored spritzers. Avoid indulging in alcohol consumption while on the worksite.

Free Spirits

Urine drug testThere are so many possibilities for the title “free spirits” in an article. Free spirited individuals may be said to be more likely to engage in drug abuse or alcoholism. Or, we could mention how “spirits” is another term for alcohol and discuss the pervasive use for drinking in order to deal with our world as we know it.

In fact, there is not a single job which man can claim which has not been stated as stressful, hard, or in some way deserving of a drink at the end of the day.

Of course, that is true. Work is difficult, and we all must at some point take the edge off in the evening.

However, when this behavior turns into taking the edge off in the morning before you even get to work, or when the afternoon needs to be lightened by a little drinking before returning to your duties…then you have a problem.

Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6 is one of the most popular products sold at CMM Technology, among all of our other drug test equipment. In addition to providing breathalysers, like our LifeLoc FC10, we also provide breathalyser recalibration services for your business, no matter whose products you are using for your employee drug testing. Free spirited and steady tempers alike, there is not an instant cure for alcohol abuse once begun. It is a long road, and many newly hired workers may begin at their new jobs, thinking that this time will be different, and really hoping for and believing it.

It is when the small hiccups and bumps in the road occur that their resolve is tested.

Often, free spirited people are idealists, and this means that they can form unrealistic expectations of their ability to handle different types of situations. When the day starts off well and they feel good, idealists can be on top of the world and believe that nothing can get them down, even if they are in reality very easily affected by external influences. That is why companies have to use employee drug testing. You never know when someone will hit a bump in the road and need to take a break by abusing drugs or alcohol. For your drug test equipment, call CMM Technology today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Electrolyte Imbalance and Withdrawal Symptoms

Electrolytes are necessary to life. In fact, electrolytes are so necessary to life that individuals who take on water drinking challenges can actually wash all Electrolyte Imbalance and Withdrawal Symptomsof the electrolytes out of their bodies and die. One individual in Wisconsin, U.S. took on a water drinking challenge and sat and drank eight gallons of water. He died within two hours of the beginning of the challenge, due to electrolyte depletion.

So, what are electrolytes and what do they have to do with drug abuse and employee drug testing?

Picture your bloodstream filled with nutrients and other particles, carrying them all over your body. In order to pick up these particles and transfer them to the appropriate place, your bloodstream must use electrolytes, which are also particles.

These are necessary in order to have enough “roughage” in your body to carry out basic, simple functions. Alcohol tests and urine drug tests, such as the kind with built in adulterant test, are useful in determining if one of your employees is abusing drugs or alcohol while on or near the workplace.

But, electrolytes are often severely…and dangerously…depleted in withdrawal patients, too. That means that even if your employee is fit for duty, there can still be a strong, almost violent reaction in the body when it goes through withdrawal. Be supportive of your worker, and understand that withdrawal is one of the primary reasons why addicts begin using again since it is so painful.

Our drug test equipment is extremely high quality. We specialize in the best, and we ship it all over Australia. In fact, we are one of the leading companies for drug testing in Western Australia. That is a pretty big reputation, and we are proud of it. Try our saliva drug tests, like our ToxSure saliva drug test, and check out our breathalyser recalibration service.

Drug Testing in Australia’s Water Based Companies

Drug TestingWater based companies in Australia either use water as a power source or have something to do with water care, purification or other type of water preservation technique. Drug testing in Australia’s water based companies is especially important for our country, because so much of our economy is based upon, in or around water. In order to set an example of proper water treatment, we must set high standards in our employee drug testing in these water based companies.

Drug testing can easily be implemented without giving a thought to quality or quantity of drug test equipment, employee treatment, and the process of documentation and evaluation of individual employees. When done casually for the sake of following company policy in a half hearted way, employee drug testing can bring inaccurate results and distorted data.

That is why CMM Technology specializes in our high quality drug test equipment and breathalyser devices, and that does not even cover our breathalyser recalibration service, which recalibrates all breathalyser devices you may have onsite, not just the ones which came from us. We are a full service company which does drug testing in Western Australia. Our sister site, Mediscreen, even performs onsite drug testing so that you can have all of this and more right on your worksite. That is a devotion to the quality of drug testing which is not often found.

Water based companies provide us with clean drinking water, proper septic systems, and utilize the power and flow of water to run factories and other types of plants or operations. That is nothing to take lightly. Drug testing in water based companies must bring a higher standard than many other companies, since there is so much more at stake, relatively speaking. AOD must be kept off of the worksite, and this is essential in developing a proper respect for our water based operations in this country.

Help us to develop this respect for our water employment by implementing employee drug testing with our drug test equipment. We provide high quality urine drug tests and we want to conserve Australia just as much as you do. Call us today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Those who know the power of environment on the psyche work very hard to make their homes and offices warm and pleasant to be in.

Cleaning Out the Dead Waste

Cleaning Out the Dead WasteOne of the most important parts of a human cell is its ability to expel waste from itself. That is how it can keep regenerating itself over and over again and live longer. As we know from many analogies drawn between business and human biology, a company must perform similar functions in order to keep itself going year after year. A good business system is great. Great managers are wonderful. Lots of enthusiasm is, of course, desired. But if they cannot all be put together into a company which cuts out the dead waste, then there will be plenty of backups and deficiencies in production and quality.

CMM Technology specializes in dead waste. No, not in that way. Rather, we help you to ascertain which of your workers engage in alcohol and drug abuse and which are smart enough to control themselves when they are on or near the workplace environment. There is a lot at stake, after all. Your assets, your clients, your customers if you sell products, your revenue stream, and everyone’s jobs are all at stake.

Before you remove someone’s job entirely, though, of course you have to look at their overall contribution. Are they performing at their peak? Do they improve morale around them? Do they make things flow more quickly and at higher quality? These things are important when figuring out what is best for your company, in addition to their record concerning employee drug testing.

In fact, many companies give their employees multiple chances before firing them if they break policy. Come to us for your drug test equipment, try our oral fluid drug tests, and review their evaluation forms and talk to their managers to determine if they are fit for duty. We also provide breathalyser recalibration service, which is helpful to use on the breathalyser devices you may already have. This saves costs, and we do it for any type of breathalyser, not just our own. Drug testing is important in cutting out the dead waste. You cannot be too careful when it comes to protecting your valuable assets. For more information concerning CMM Technology, call us today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Civilization and the Wild

Civilization has long been a supporter of employee drug testing. Long have civilized nations and companies looked to drug test kits to determine who isCivilization and the Wild civil and who is wild. Unfortunately, wild people have received a bad name from the ultra-sterilization of civilized society. This is a case where it is far better to look at the results of employee drug testing, rather than the controlled need to bring more civilization to the workplace.

Wildness has long been the symbol for those who are self governed. This is not to say that they are anarchistic or in any way illegal, immoral or hurtful. This is only to say that wildness is the law of self government, rather than government through the power of others. And wild individuals make strong reputations for themselves.

Is it not the self regulated employee who is given more responsibility?

Is it not the self disciplined employee who is trusted more than anyone else?

Instead, civilization reduces the need to build these internal controls by which people govern their own behavior. It is this lack of wildness, this lack of self government, which necessitates the use of employee drug testing. LifeLoc FC10 is one of our best breathalyser devices, and we also provides breathalyser recalibration services. We want your staff to be fit for duty just as much as you do, and we are here to help make sure that that happens.

Civilized individuals believe in someone else supporting them while they break just enough rules to make themselves feel in control of their own lives. Well, that’s no good. There should be internal self discipline which is being exercised and strengthened over time, not hacked away at by drug abuse and alcoholism at the workplace.

Have some self respect and have some respect for your job. Protect the lives and the working conditions of your employees. Show them who is keeping them safe. Try our Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6, and see our sister site for onsite drug testing. AOD should be kept off of the worksite. Drug testing is easy, simple and safe with us. Call us today for more information: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
