Another undercover operation was conducted for a Queensland client, which is a well known company in the outer suburbs of Brisbane. There was a suspicion that there was drug trafficking and drug use at the plant. A forklift driver had recently been in an accident and refused to have a drug test. Our man was hand-picked for the job, in his mid twenties and of surfer appearance. He commenced employment soon after as a forklift driver. Over a period of about eight weeks, he became familiar with the operation and befriended many of the employees. It transpired that marijuana smoking had been rampant among many of the employees and that there was a particular location where they congregated and smoked the drugs. There were also two individuals who had been dealing. The company had eliminated the problems by recently declaring the problem spot off limits. Also, the two employees who had been dealing, had recently left the company. Our operative was satisfied that the company had effectively dealt with the problem and the feedback from the factory floor by the employees was that for the time being, they were all behaving themselves and that drugs were not a problem. With this particular company we periodically send a man undercover to monitor the activities within, from a drugs, theft and safety perspective. The company is showing that it is being responsible from an OHS point of view, concerned for the safety of its workers and company performance. Undercover operations can be a valuable tool to detect fraud and theft, but it can also be of immense value identifying unethical work practices that can bring the company into disrepute. Law suits and major losses due to recalls could amount to millions of dollars in lost revenue, tarnished reputations and diminished share values.
