Barbados: Arawak Cement plans to introduce alcohol breath tests for all of its workers in late March 2019. Previously the cement producer had been conducting random tests, according to the Barbados Today newspaper. The introduction date for the breath test has been delayed following negotiations with the Barbados Workers Union. Multiple breaches of the company’s alcohol rules could lead to drug treatment, counselling or discipline. The cement producer says it has introduced the alcohol testing on health and safety grounds.
