ARE YOUR DRUG AND ALCOHOL POLICIES IN PLACE?

Samples of Policies & Checklist Provided Below

All employers should have a vital interest in maintaining a safe, healthy, and efficient working environment. Being under the influence of a drug or alcohol on the job poses serious safety and health risks to the user and to all those who work with the user. The use, sale, purchase, transfer, or possession of an illegal drug in the workplace, and the use, possession, or being under the influence of alcohol also poses unacceptable risks for safe, healthy, and efficient operations.

A well-written policy can help protect you from litigation and, in the event of litigation, may serve as a defense. If you have a written policy that is ill-conceived or poorly enforced, or do not have a written policy at all, you may be more susceptible to claims of personal injury to intoxicated employees, their coworkers and the public, claims of negligent hiring or retention, wrongful termination, disability discrimination, and claims from injured third parties. A well-written policy may serve as a defense to these claims.

Federal Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act – Jan 4, 2014

On January 4, 2014 the Federal Reduction of Lead in Drinking Water Act mandates reducing the allowable lead content in brass products from 8.0% to 0.25%.

Ensure that any pipe, plumbing or pipe fitting, or fixture you purchase, that is intended for use for human consumption, has less than 0.25% lead on its wetted surfaces.
