Build UK, working with Eurofins Workplace Drug Testing, has published a template Drugs and Alcohol Policy.
It aims to help the whole construction supply chain provide a consistent approach to the use of drugs and alcohol.
Recognising there are different legal limits across the nations and workplace environments, along with various ways of testing, the Build UK template policy has been developed in response to calls from members to provide a consistent framework for drug and alcohol testing.
It will also deal with instances of misuse, eliminating unnecessary duplication and waste across the industry.
The policy, which is initially available to Build UK members and CIP Health & Safety Manual subscribers only, is designed so companies can adopt it in its entirety or incorporate elements into their own policy to suit their business.
CIP Knowledge subscribers can view this policy by logging in at www.cip-knowledge.com
Hardcopy and CDROM subscribers will receive the policy in the December 2022 updates.
