Policy 335
POLICY TITLE:
WORKPLACE DRUG AND ALCOHOL USE
Policy No. 335
POLICY PURPOSE
To clearly state Council's position regarding drug and alcohol use as it affects the workplace.
POLICY STATEMENT
Employees are obliged to present themselves in a fit state so that in carrying out normal work
activities they do not expose themselves, their co -workers or the public to unnecessary risks to
safety and health. The employee is responsible for any civil or criminal penalty, which results
from being under the influence of drugs or alcohol in the workplace.
The use of drugs or alcohol in the workplace – including Council premises, parks, reserves,
vehicles, plant or any other Local Government building or physical asset, is forbidden.
The Chief Executive Officer may waive this requirement where circumstances warrant (for
example, during a social event). The focus of this policy is drug and alcohol dependence,
which affects the work performance of the individual. This policy is directed towards
maintaining a satisfactory level of employee health, safety and work performance.
