Drink Driver Testing Packages
Drinking and driving is a very real danger, when patrons are set on driving to an event, BMF offer 2 very effective strategies to give patrons every chance to test themselves before driving out of the venue.

BMF will be able systematically offer drivers the chance to pull over in a holding bay and be tested for alcohol and drugs with intent to stop drinking and driving.

BMF crew are also certified in traffic management and ensure traffic flows in and out of the entrance/exit points
BMF are adamant in making sure drivers are hydrated before leaving an event, offering water and Gatorade.
BMF crew deliver critical information and advice to all drivers who are tested for drink driving, encouraging them to reconsider their options before leaving. Often directing them back into the festival to rest, sleep, eat and rehydrate before driving.
University Packages

Universities Australia wide are all dealing with the same issues.Drink driving and anti social behaviour. Many fear these problems are destroying the university experience, as a ripple effect, University reputations are being tarnished and a growing health and safety concern for students welfare becomes apparent. BMF are able to implement strategic step by step processes to empower duty managers, students and University heads to tackle these issues head on.

BMF will not only sit on the front line of any licensed event on and off campus but will interact and educate students while in the act of drinking.

The more hardline approach comes through a customised program developed by BMF where the university implements a system where students will be breath tested in accordance with guidelines set by the university. These guidelines will create a social conscience to limit the amount of drinking while on campus.

As a by product of these actions, BMF will also implement education by using BAC drink coasters, BAC wallet cards and a BAC mobile application to help students monitor their drinking in a very simple, effective and user friendly way.

CASE STUDY: CSU - O - WEEK

SUMMARY

Charles Sturt University (CSU has multiple campuses in Albury- Wodonga, Bathurst, Dubbo, Goulburn, Orange, Port Macquarie, Wagga Wagga and Canberra. Most of these campuses encourage and facilitate onsite accomodation for the students to live in while studying. A vast majority of students however do not live on campus and have to travel by car to get to university each day. Due to the isolated geography of most CSU campuses, students get behind the wheel of their car on a day-to-day basis.

THE BRIEF

CSU host regular campus events where students pre-drink before in their share-room facilities. This behaviour is very much a part of university culture. Once at the venue, consuming alcohol continues at the event. The risks of having students driving on alcohol is something CSU wants to stamp out completely. The next morning also poses serious concerns for the students wellbeing and safety. Strong education programs are implemented to ensure students understand and are aware of the risks of driving a vehicle the morning after consuming alcohol.

THE PROCESS

Charles Sturt University (CSU) invite BMF to attend not only their O-Week events across four different campuses but also their event schedule where they know a vast majority of students will be attending with the intention to drink alcohol. BMF will roam the venue, offering students the opportunity and insight to participate in having a breathtest while in the act of drinking to determine whether or not they think they know where their BAC (blood-alcohol concentration) and whether or not they think they are okay to drive. Students are taken through a step-by-step process to download, install and learn how to calculate their BAC by using the YOUR BAC app developed by BMF. Students have to enter what they had drunk up until the present moment and if they entered in too many standard drinks, it would simply not match up with doing a breath alcohol test in real-time. This not only gave the students perspective, but it also taught them what their standard drinks looked like and how to track them while driving.

The app is a great way to keep track of your drinks when an accurate breath test is not available.

The morning after experience identifies that the message becomes reality, and really hits home. BMF attend the main dining hall where all students come for breakfast the following morning. BMF teach students to use redlines – single-use disposable breath testers (which they have access to on campus), accompanied with the APP and real- time breath test.

BMF also provide the university RA’s with an ‘official drug and alcohol tester’ t-shirt. They are briefed, coached and then work alongside BMF staff to help deliver the message during breakfast.

This is a great initiative to further involve the RA’s and for the students to look to them as role models within their respective campuses.

REHABILITATION CENTERS

URINE TESTING

  • Are you concerned about your patients cheating the drug test?
  • Or that your urine test is not up-to-date with the amount of new synthetic drugs on the streets?
  • Can you stand by the accuracy of your current urine test?

It’s a well-known fact that substance abuse is a serious issue and the habit can be extremely hard to kick. Treatment for drug abuse is a long and difficult process. For some patients, the temptation to relapse is common, just one hit is all it takes to fall back into the habit and is detrimental to their treatment program and their health.

A urine test is one of the many approaches BMF offers rehabilitation centres. An accurate urine test identifies substances that have been consumed by the patients. The majority of rehabilitation centres currently use urine cups with 5 panels, which only tests for the common drugs ie: MET/AMP/COC/THC/OPI. It does not test for any new drugs out on the market, more and more synthetic drugs are now being consumed and introduced and it is imperative to remain on top of this.

Across Australia, we lose track of the prevalence of new substances and dangerous drugs that are often flooding the streets. Rehabilitation centres are often not updating their Urine testing products to keep up with the ever-changing illegal substances in the market. BMF believe that by not updating your testing products, it’s a disservice to your patients.

For example; Quite often rehabilitation centres do not test for K2 Spice (synthetic cannabis) in their Urine cups. This substance should be treated the same as any other illegal substance, it is highly popular and should be tested.

SYNTHETICS AND THE LAW

“In Queensland, New South Wales, South Australia and Victoria there is now a ‘ban’ on possessing or selling any substance that has a psychoactive effect other than alcohol, tobacco and food.”

BMF have developed a multi-drug urine test, specifically designed for rehabilitation centres across Australia.

The Precision DX Urine Cup is a full spectrum urine test. It is utilised to detect the presence of both illegal and even prescription drugs in the donor’s urine.

  • All in-one drug test cup
  • 99% accuracy
  • The test strips delivers results within a minute.
  • Built-in temperature strip
  • Built-in adulterants
  • 10 substances
  • 12-month shelf life
  • Meets all Australian Testing Standards
  • Tests for: AMP/OPI/THC/COC/KET/OXY/NZO/MET/MAMP/K2

Surface Testing

DO YOU NEED SURFACE TESTING?

When there is suspicion of drug-use, manufacturing or unexplained illnesses. Can be used for testing of properties, cars and workplaces.

Once a surface area has been exposed to Meth, the highly dangerous chemicals stick to surfaces such as, walls, floors, cabinets, doors, carpets, curtains, soft furnishings, lounges etc

Meth residue can stick around on surfaces for lengthy periods of time, even years! Being exposed to these chemicals is highly dangerous, especially for young children and the elderly.

Types of testing that we do include:

PROPERTY

Testing a property for methamphetamine is the best way of checking whether a home is clean and safe to occupy. Keeping a drug-free environment free from residue that can cause serious health issues.

Drug Testing Services are for properties or people looking to buy, rent or invest in a property. We also test on behalf of property managers and landlords.

AUTOMOTIVE

Testing is commonly tested in the automotive industry.

Stolen vehicles: If your vehicle has been recovered you should conduct surface testing on the vehicle. Fumes in the interior of the car may be contaminated and being in close proximity can cause serious harm.

Side effects in a contaminated vehicle may cause, nose and throat issues, difficulty breathing or potentially unexplained rashes or aggravation of the eyes. Any of these unexplained symptoms could potentially be the result of these dangerous chemicals being present inside the vehicle.
