Life Bridges, Inc. is committed to providing a safe work environment and to fostering the well-being and health of its employees. This commitment is jeopardized when a Life Bridges, Inc. employee illegally uses drugs or alcohol on the job, comes to work under their influence, or possesses, distributes or sells drugs or alcohol in the workplace; therefore, Life Bridges, Inc. has established the following policy:

  1. It is a violation of company policy for any employee to possess, sell, trade, or offer for sale illegal drugs or alcohol or otherwise engage in the illegal use of drugs or alcohol on the job.
  2. It is a violation of company policy for anyone to report to work under the influence of illegal drugs or alcohol.

  5. All employees with on the job injuries requiring medical attention are required to undergo a post-accident drug and alcohol screen.
  6. Violations of this policy are subject to disciplinary action up to and including termination.

It is the responsibility of the company's supervisors to counsel employees whenever they see changes in performance or behavior that suggest an employee has a drug or alcohol problem. Although it is not the supervisor's job to diagnose personal problems, the supervisor should encourage such employees to seek help and advise them about available resources for getting help. Everyone shares responsibility for maintaining a safe work environment and co-workers should encourage anyone who may have a drug or alcohol problem to seek help.

The goal of this policy is to balance our respect for individuals with the need to maintain a safe, productive, and drug-free environment. The intent of this policy is to offer a helping hand to those who need it, while sending a clear message that the illegal use of drugs is incompatible with employment at Life Bridges, Inc.

I authorize any business and/or individuals to release any information which may be necessary to determine my ability to perform the duties of a job I am being considered for, prior to my employment or in the future, during my employment with the agency.
