The CLC is delighted to share a template Drugs and Alcohol Policy produced by Build UK, with the support of Eurofins Workplace Drug Testing, in response to calls for a consistent framework for drug and alcohol testing across the industry.
Recognising that there are different legal limits across the nations and workplace environments, along with various ways of testing, the policy can be adopted by the whole construction supply chain to provide a consistent approach to the issue of drugs and alcohol, which will help the industry to eliminate unnecessary duplication and waste.
The CLC believes it will also help to raise awareness of the risks and potential harm to health associated with the use of drugs and alcohol and provide a framework to enable instances of misuse to be handled in an appropriate, fair and consistent manner.
The template policy has been drafted so that companies can adopt it in its entirety or incorporate elements of it into their own policy to suit their business.
