  • Alcohol or Other Drug Use in the Workplace

    The Company recognises that alcohol or other drug use can sometimes become a social and health problem, which can have a negative impact on the working and private lives of those it affects.

    The use of alcohol and other drugs can create problems in the workplace such as increased risk of accidents, absenteeism, diminished performance and productivity and interpersonal conflict. The use of alcohol or other drugs by an employee may also be inconsistent with the company's obligations under the Health and Safety at Work Act 2015.

    It is the intention of this policy to minimise the negative impact on the workplace of the use of alcohol or other drugs.


    Employees are prohibited from the unlawful manufacture, use, sale, purchase, transfer or possession of an illegal drugs or unprescribed controlled substances while on the job or on company property.

    Employees may not report for work, attend to their duties or drive a company vehicle while under the influence of illegal drugs or unprescribed controlled substances.

    Employees may not report for work or attend to their duties in such a condition of intoxication that he/she is unable to perform his/her duties properly or safely.

    An employee may not drive any company owned vehicle when they have been drinking alcohol.

    It is an individual driver’s responsibility to observe New Zealand drink driving laws. However, everyone should consider it their duty to do their best to ensure others are in a fit state to drive. Managers are authorised to forbid a company member from driving a company vehicle if they have reason to believe that they have been drinking or are otherwise intoxicated.

    Some prescribed medication may affect an employee's ability to work safely. Supervisors or managers should be informed where an employee or their doctor believes this is the case. The supervisor or manager will ensure the confidentiality of this information.

    Action due to Violation of this Policy

    Violation of this policy is regarded as Serious Misconduct. The appropriate level of disciplinary action will be determined on a case-by-case basis, with sanctions up to or including termination depending on the severity of the offence.

    Guidelines for Managers / Supervisors

    If it is thought that an employee's performance may be impaired due to the influence of alcohol or other drugs, and there is any potential risk to the individual or others, or plant, machinery or vehicular operations, the employee should be asked to stop work immediately by the Manager/Supervisor and if necessary be sent home. The Manager/Supervisor must inform Richard Emmett or Debbie Walford as soon as possible if this happens.

    Where an employee has a suspected alcohol or other drug related problem, the Manager/Supervisor shall provide an opportunity for the employee to discuss the problem and encourage them to seek help.
