Drugs and Alcohol Policy Statement
This is a policy applying to all members of staff working within and under Composite Interiors (S.E) & Co Ltd. The Company aims to ensure all of its employees are aware of the rules concerning alcohol and drugs use, and the consequences of breaking these rules. The Company is committed to minimising any risk as a result of such substances to its employees, or those around them, whilst working.
- Staff must not report to work under the influence of alcohol.
- Staff must not consume alcohol during working hours or during a work break, e.g. lunch.
- Staff must not use, sell, possess, or be under the influence of any illegal drugs, or any drugs for non-medical purposes, whilst on Company premises, Company worksites, or Company business. Such illegal drugs include, but are not confined to, all of those covered by the Misuse of Drugs Act (1971).
These rules are enforced in order to protect the safety of everyone involved in the Company’s business dealings. Any disregard of these rules will be taken extremely seriously by the Company. An employee found to have broken any of these rules is guilty of serious misconduct, and will be subject to disciplinary action up to and including dismissal from the Company.
In any case where a member of staff is on prescription medication they must first consult with a GP or pharmacist and make sure any side-effects, for example dizziness, will not interfere with their work performance or any health and safety guidelines. If a member of staff feels such medication will interfere with their capability to carry out a job safely, they must immediately inform a director.
Composite Interiors (S.E.) & Co Ltd is committed to the welfare of all its staff members. If any employee feels they need support with a problem, or admits the existence of a problem before it becomes a serious misconduct issue, they will be offered confidential support and assistance by the Company in order to help them resolve the issue.
