Workplace Investigations


Unfortunately, not every person does the right thing at work. When you suspect something isn’t right, you need to act carefully to gather evidence that can be used to support settlements or legal proceedings if it comes to that. We service all areas of North Queensland workplace investigations, working quickly to gather evidence and establish the facts. Contact us.


WorkCover insurance investigations

We have been conducting North Queensland workplace investigations for many years, including four years’ experience in WorkCover investigations. How do you know if you need to investigate a claim? If you suspect a worker has:

  • Modified or changed their medical certificate to claim for WorkCover
  • Claimed for an injury that didn't happen at or because of work
  • Claimed for an injury that never happened
  • Provides false information in relation to a WorkCover claim
  • Claims WorkCover but you suspect they are working elsewhere in a similar field and earning income.

Our workplace investigations using the new and emerging technologies to minimise detection.

Workplace drug and Alcohol testing

Effective drug and alcohol testing improves the safety of workplaces. In many industries, testing to see if staff are affected by drugs or alcohol at work is also a statutory requirement. Our North Queensland workplace investigations team provide screening services for drug and alcohol (oral and urine tests) including pre-employment and random for cause testing. All testing is conducted to relevant standards (AS/NZS4308:2008 and AS 4760:2006) and extends to instant laboratory results depending on your requirements and policies.
