Three Metro train controllers have been stood down after testing positive for either cannabis or alcohol while on the job.
The staff members, who help manage the city's trains from the company's control centre, tested positive in drug and alcohol tests late last week.
Three Metro train controllers have been stood down.
Metro carried out drug and alcohol tests after a potential safety breach in which a train that was under maintenance moved when it was unsafe to do so, but nobody was injured during the incident.
The three employees who tested positive have now been stood down with pay. It is understood they were long-serving staff.
A Metro spokesman confirmed the incident and said tests were conducted according to national rail safety standards.
Metro will report the breaches to the rail safety watchdog, the Office of the National Rail Safety Regulator, by Friday this week.
"Our number one priority is the safety of all of our passengers and staff," the spokesman said.
