The Right Thing to Do

You may have been told once or twice in your lifetime what the “right thing to do” was. Well, whether or not you did it, there was a moralMedix implication in the above statement. If you do the right thing, then you are a good person, and if you do the wrong thing, then you are a flawed person. Well, we are all flawed people, so that destroys THAT argument. In the meantime, when owning and operating your company, the right thing to do is what is best for the money you have obtained and for the people you have employed. You have responsibilities to both the money and the people, and they are both under your care and guardianship.

In this case, we are speaking of using drug testing to screen your employees and make sure that they are not breaking company policy by abusing substances while on or near the workplace. This also includes not showing up to work intoxicated. Drug test equipment is part of making sure of this. When you are looking for high quality urine drug tests, look no further than the Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6 provided by CMM Technology. We also provide saliva drug tests and alcohol tests.

Now, the right thing to do is to implement drug testing of your entire business. You have no idea what some of your workers may be bringing to the worksite and their attitudes affect the attitudes of those around them, like an epidemic, until they have single-handedly brought down an entire team of workers. Also, they can cause mishaps or machinery malfunction, hurt other employees on purpose or by being careless, and they can be verbally abusive to anyone near them. That is a dangerous situation to have in your business. When you are looking for a breathalyser recalibration service or just some screening tests, look at CMM Technology. We provide business-to-business care to companies all over Australia and we are proud to serve the business professionals of this great and wild nation.

Those Who Love Reactions

cmm technology australiaWe all know people who love reactions. They like teasing their coworkers, playing minor pranks on their spouses, and joking with their friends. They love the big reactions that some people necessarily bring to the situation, and often the reactors and the reaction creators pair off so that each party might get as much as possible out of each other’s side of the equation.

We all love to be around those who elicit lots of positive reactions, especially those who are able to bring us out of the dark moods we may have been feeling lately, and into the light. There is something powerful in being able to make someone laugh or being a strongly positive influence in their lives.

Sometimes, however, in unnatural situations the people who love reactions are looking for fear or dread or lack of safety for their partner or friend. This is usually what happens when someone who is abusing alcohol or drugs goes off on a tangent which they cannot control. CMM Technology brings you the screening tests which you can use in your employee drug testing and alcohol screenings. We are a NATA accredited recalibration service, as well, for your alcohol testing devices, even if they are not one of ours. We know that you only want positive reactions out of your workers, not the ones which accompany abusing or being around someone who abuses illicit substances.

Reactions are part of the primal nature in humans. Laughter, enjoyment, peace, safety and kindness are all part of the ordinary safe reactions which we display when we are comforted, safe, and well cared for. Fear, hatred, high emotional states, loudness of voice, and other reactions accompany a fear based or unstable set of circumstances.

While employee drug testing does not take away the possibility that someone might use on the worksite, it will give you clear and accurate readings of who it is who is doing this. CMM Technology provides NATA accredited breathalyser recalibration services, along with our line of urine and saliva drug tests, like our Rapid STAT saliva drug tests. We are a part of the hope you have for your future. Call us today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

The Edge between Humanity and Cruelty

Breathalyser Recalibration ServiceHumans really are frail creatures, but we often spend our entire lives pretending to be more than we are, tougher than we are, worse than we are, or just wilder than we are. We want to make ourselves and others believe that we are not to be messed with. Of course, this can be useful, but it can also be a detrimental habit to take up. For instance, when was the last time you put up walls around yourself when encountering extended family member during the holidays? Did it end up helping or hurting things?

We act like gods who can both create and destroy each other. However, we are still humans who can and will be hurt by everything around us. Doing things well and working together smoothly involves professionalism. Professionalism involves being nice and polite, not overreacting emotionally, and staying calm in a crisis. Being able to see the other side of the problem is one of the characteristics of a leader. Being able to look at a situation and visualize what it will be like when the issue passes is crucial in any company.

Help your employees to engender this spirit within themselves by helping them to take control over any drinking or drug abusing in the workplace. Employee drug testing is a powerful tool, especially when used right. Help your workers to see the help which their participation will create. Help them to understand why their livelihoods are calmer and more manageable when everyone is safe and protected in their workplace. This is all part of engendering an atmosphere of helpfulness and creativity on the jobsite, instead of competition and bitterness. When people feel that they have to fight back at all times, they turn both their work and their homes into a battleground.

Alcohol tests, like our breathalyser devices, contribute to keeping things in order, too. Also, you can take advantage of our breathalyser recalibration service. We are here to help and to aid you in your process of turning the living organism of your business into a healthy and productive cell. Call us today for more information or to ask us any questions: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

The Boundaries are Already in Place

Onsite drug testingOkay, so you have your workers gathered together and you have told them that you will be using drug test equipment from CMM Technology in the future. If you haven’t been using employee drug testing in the past, then you have probably just broken that news to them, as well. They will be getting regularly scheduled screenings.

At this point, you may be concerned about what will happen if you get undesired results from any of their drug testing. Well, we are here to assure you that, if that does happen, boundaries are already in place, in the form of your company’s policies.

Your business will have policies which delineate all of the appropriate behavior for employees and what the options are if these policies are disregarded or broken. In addition to your company’s basic structure, you also may have other programs in which your workers can enroll and get help so that they can continue working for you. Be sure and have a full awareness and maybe even some volunteer experience with these programs so that you know what to recommend to your employee if something unwanted shows up on their drug testing results.

The boundaries are already in place. All you have to do is follow the wall, stay your course, and follow company procedure all of the way to its end. In this manner, you can be assured of a happy, healthy workplace environment for both you and your employees.

You know, not everyone realizes how important it is to have an atmosphere of health, tolerance, and safety. But, with that atmosphere comes a great desire to do more and be more as people. Therefore, we strongly recommend that you invest in some high quality drug test equipment from CMM Technology, regularly implement employee drug testing, and bring your workplace safety up into the stratosphere.

To place an order with us, first look at the equipment you have used in the past or that you plan on using in the future. Then, browse our website and pick out the best alcohol tests and drug test kits for the job. CMM Technology also has recalibration services which are NATA accredited.

This is Today, This is Now

synthetic drug testingSometimes, we get in a rut because we are of the opinion that the truth cannot change, today will be the same as yesterday, and that nothing will come and rescue us from the non-fairy tale that we live in. We sometimes like to say, “That’s all very well and good, but let’s be realistic…” We like to place limits on ourselves because it is the social norm, not because we actually feel in any way limited. This is ridiculous, of course. We should all be living the lives that we thought we would as children. But, when it comes to “reality,” we often think that such a reality is not possible. Welcome to the “real” world. Dreams do come true. Your future is in your own hands. And today, well today is the best thing because with it comes the possibility of rising above yesterday. What could bring us greater joy?

Now, walk into the home of a drug addict and ask them about life. Chances are, they will tell you what they think you want to hear: that life is shitty but you got to not let it get to you. They assume that you want them to commiserate with you. The truth is, they are not sure if life is really good or really bad. Their ability to have perspective is completely shot. That is why employee drug testing is so popular. If your workers cannot tell the difference between a good thing and a bad thing, then they are not competent enough to be employed by you. You may want to be informed of this fact. Screening tests, like our Alere DDS2 saliva drug test, give you access to this type of information. You can know for certain that today is bringing you good data. Today is giving you the control over your business that you need. With knowledge comes power, and you are now able to wield it for the good of your employees. You can implement company policies so that your workers are protected and your business assets stay intact. To order drug test kits from us, call CMM Technology right now: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

The Wealth of Sensates

MedixIn Jungian psychology, “sensate” is a typology of four possible typologies. This particular trait perceives reality in a step-by-step basis, one moment at a time, with little or no regard for the past stretching in one direction or the future stretching in the other. The opposite of a sensate typology is an intuitive typology, which appreciates how processes and long timelines in both directions work and are created. Sensate typologies on the other hand are too engrossed with the task at hand to spend time on planning and all the perceived time wasters that intuitive are so fond of.

The wealth of sensate typologies comes from this belief in the moment. If you live every moment in the present tense, then you can accomplish a great deal because you are not constantly planning and plotting but never actually living in the present tense long enough to get anything done.

When your employees are focused and prepared for their work day, even intuitive and other typologies are able to get it together enough to live in the present moment and structure their days to fit their various personalities and ways of thinking. It is important to provide this structure for your workers, regardless of their typologies. This is where employee drug testing is most relevant. If you understand how much your workers need to work within a system, rather than being left to form separate and sometimes contradictory systems of their own, you would see that no one, if they knew about the alternative, would really have a problem with being screened for drug or alcohol abuse. While sensate typologies live in the moment, there is still a need to surround them with structure and reassurance of their safety and the safety of their coworkers. Adulterant tests built in to drug test kits is a great way to start, and an example of this is our Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6. We know that you want to leverage everything you have to get the most out of your employees without forcing them in any way. This is one of the ways in which you can build a safe, assuring environment for your workers. Identify and deal with any substance abusers. Call CMM Technology today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

The Plain Truth

MedixMost people cannot handle the plain truth. This is not because they are weak or in some way criminal, but because we all smooth and manipulate the truth out in little ways in regular, everyday conversation in order to get what we want, help someone feel better, and get along with other people. It is called being polite.

Without this politeness or courtesy, the plain truth is very ugly, indeed. We are not used to such blatant honesty and our spirits are not used to hearing things so harshly broken down for our little ears. When we are unable to handle the plain truth, it has nothing to do with our ability to be good people or our ability to be around good things or people. It has to do with the fact that human nature itself seeks to present itself and other people in the best possible light, and therefore is able to make meaningful, positive connections with many people throughout the earth, since we all feel better when we dealt with approximately 80% honestly. We have the gist of the truth, and we know what the rest of the truth says, but we don’t actually want to hear it spoken out loud. This way, we are able to preserve our pride and dignity.

This is not the case with employee drug testing. You will need to know what is going on at all times. You will need to know which of your employees are abusing substances, if any of them are. You will need to know what sort of substance abuse they are engaging in, so that they can be screened for those in the future, if their employment is retained by you. The plain truth is harsh, yes, but very informative, and slightly less personal when reached by scientific fact, rather than by potentially subjective opinions from you or your staff.CMM Technology provides some of the finest quality drug test equipment in the nation. We provide NATA accredited breathalyser recalibration service. We provide saliva drug tests, like our Alere DDS2, our Oral Cube or OratectXP saliva drug tests, as well as many other screening tests. Call us today to order: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Tender Loving Care

Oraline Saliva Drug There will be times in the operation of your business when all your employees need is a little pick-me-up which lifts their spirits and gives them hope for the future concerning their jobs and performance record. There will be times when all you have to do is listen well or give one or two small pieces of sage advice. All of this is great if that is all you have to do.

However, there are inevitable circumstances when the only problem is the substance abuse of one or more employees.

Will tender loving care fix this? Not exactly.

Many people believe that if they give an addict enough love it will fix the individual. It will not. In fact, you can really open yourself up to being stolen from, used and abused by the addict in order for them to live their abusive lifestyle and continue purchasing their drugs. The situation is dire if you let them in like this. You can love them. You can give them tender loving care. Just make sure that you have boundaries between you and them, unbroken boundaries, at all times.

Now, your business needs tender loving care and this is how you can express some of that desire to help someone or something out. If you take good care of your company, it will return the favor many times over. Do not allow employees to abuse substances in your workplace, and your assets will be protected from liability and fraud.

Of course, the natural thing to do at this point is to start looking at some onsite drug testing companies. For these services, you will need some high quality drug test equipment. That is why we, CMM Technology, are here. Oral fluid drug tests and alcohol breathalysers are common in businesses these days. Just make sure that you have the best kind. After all, if your equipment doesn’t measure up, then your employee drug testing program won’t measure up. Make sure that you buy the best, and we have that very thing. Be sure to check out our LifeLoc FC10 Plus breathalyser device when you are looking at our website. Call us today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

The Purpose of Office Pizza Delivery

Oraline SalivaNo, this is NOT a thesis on pizzas, pizza delivery boys, or why people eat pizza. Rather, it is about the act of a community coming together over a common meal. Truth be told, if everyone in the world could completely avoid who they disliked, we would have a lot of lonely people out there who were almost completely isolated from everyone else. While this is still true for some people, the majority of us have to live next to, work with, and be around people we dislike all the time.

And, truth be told, that is a good thing.

You see, differences can be resolved over time as long as enough time is taken to be around the other person and understand them. When this time is not taken, then isolation from people you don’t like becomes very solid. It is important as a society and as individuals to always have regular contact with people we dislike so that, with the passing of every month, we can grow and become more than what we are now.

When we avoid each other and go out in our little cliques to our work lunches, we may enjoy ourselves more, but we also cease to grow as people. The great thing about office pizza delivery is that everyone wants some pizza, they have to gather around the same pizza box in order to have some and, temporarily, enemies are drawn together into polite, casual conversation.

Yes, even the mundane activities such as pizza delivery better us as people of the world.

Now, in other areas of business, employee drug testing can do the same thing. Whether enemies complain about having to get tested together while waiting in line, or whether people gossip about someone they know in another company who tested positive on their screening test, the commonality of the process can similarly bring people temporarily together during the time of screening.

At CMM Technology, we provide the finest drug test equipment, including our Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6 and our Alere DDS2 (with reader) saliva drug test. For more information or just to tell us how much you like us, call CMM Technology today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

The Million Step Path

Oraline SalivaIt is said that the journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. Of course, after about fifty or two hundred and fifty steps, the road ahead still seems endless. It can be so easy to look at all of the progress you are supposed to make and think that it will never get done. It can be easy to just give up now before you waste all that time only going partway.

The truth is that the million step path does not need to seem so long. How do you keep from being discouraged?

In various twelve step programs intended to help alcoholics and drug addicts, the addicts are often told to take one day at a time. What does that mean? Does it mean that you have to give up on all of your wonderful future goals and plans? Does it mean that you have to only live in the moment and never think about tomorrow?

If you take one day at a time, then you are dealing with today’s problems right now, today. You are not looking for what tomorrow will bring when it comes to trouble. You can still plan for good things for tomorrow, but you are not worrying about what you will or will not do if something should arise.

The million step path is begun, completed, and finished by taking one step at a time, one right after the other.

Employee drug testing cannot determine how likely an employee is to keep abusing substances, but it can give you a photograph of what they are like right now. If a worker is abusing drugs or alcohol, then you will know about it, but you will not know how long they have been doing it or how long they may continue doing so in the future. You can only implement regular testing so that you can keep an eye on them and implement company policy if they do not adhere to your business guidelines.

For more information about ordering drug test equipment or alcohol breathalyser devices, please contact CMM Technology and ask us anything you would like to. We are here to service drug testing in Western Australia: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

The High Price of a Spotless Reputation

synthetic cannabis drug testWhen someone has a spotless reputation, they may be strong community or business leaders, because everyone respects them and looks up to them. Well, we don’t really mean everyone. You see, humans find it very difficult to be around perfection. We find it nigh impossible to be around people who really are perfect or seem to be to us. We put them down, we ridicule them, we say that they are stuck up, and we do everything in our power to convince ourselves that people of perfection are really unhappy and that they do not live very fulfilled lives.

The high price of a spotless reputation can sometimes be that, when you do fall down, there may not be a huge crowd of people waiting to help you or to pick you back up. People are more likely to help and support people who are just as weak and helpless as they perceive themselves to be. People are more likely to adjust and assist people who are similar to themselves. This does not apply to people of perfection. They have no peers. Not everyone feels that comfortable around them, and they may secretly rejoice when that person really does fall.

In business, your employees must be real and direct. Of course, they must be professional, but this does not mean being “fake.” It means, rather, that this person is likely to view the world through the best lenses that they can possible find. It means that these people who work for you will have to spread a real human impression of your business in the everyday world. And they cannot do this if they are in the middle of drug abuse or alcoholism while at work. They must be clean, at least during working hours, in order to be able to represent your company accurately.

Onsite drug testing is made much easier by the drug test kits, like the Medix integrated pro-split cup 6+6, from CMM Technology. We also provide breathalyser recalibration services which are NATA accredited. What more could you ask for? Would you like good customer service? We have that, too. For more information, call CMM Technology today: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.

Happily Waiting for Forever

Drug Free WorkplaceIn the beginning of the classic book, Great Expectations, a rich woman is described who wear the wedding dress she wore when her groom-to-be dumped her and left her unmarried and heartbroken. As the years have passed, she wears the same dress, one shoe on, one shoe off, and all the clocks are stopped at the exact time when it happened.

In other words, while dust and decay and mold have grown everywhere else on her property, she still relives those days of heartache, over and over, stuck in time, as if nothing had changed in all of those years. But, in fact, time itself would not wait for her heart to heal, and in the beginning of Great Expectations, she is now an old, rich woman, wearing a yellowed wedding dress, one stocking worn down to nothing, and the other yellowed and stiff, never having been worn.

She is, happily or unhappily, waiting for forever.

What would you do if you were given the gift of eternal life? What would you do if you were given the gift of biological immortality on this earth, in this lifetime? The question is a good one, for it becomes one of increased interest as we age. What are priorities now that we didn’t have twenty years ago? Is everything as you expected it would be when you were all grown up?

And this… this life… this existence of human flesh and bone, of hearts leaping with joy or breaking over lost loves, of mortality and decay, this life is all we have. What will you do with your time? Your business funds your dreams, your vacations, and your time with your family. Without it, you would not be able to do anything worthwhile that you wanted to do. Therefore, utilize employee drug testing and make sure that all of your workers are up to snuff. Make sure that your drug test kits come from CMM Technology, that your oral fluid drug tests include our popular Alere DDS2 saliva drug test (with reader), and make sure that you have access to our NATA accredited breathalyser recalibration services. You’ll be glad you did: (+61) 1300 79 70 30.
