DRUG & ALCOHOL-FREE WORKPLACE
SIMOS cares about the safety, health and well-being of all our employees. We are also committed to preventing accidents that cost our company and our customers. The company recognizes that alcohol, drug, and substance misuse and abuse pose health, safety and security problems. Therefore, we expect employees to help us maintain a work environment free from the use and effects of alcohol, drugs, and other mood-altering substances.
All employees are prohibited from manufacturing, cultivating, distributing, dispensing, possessing or using illegal drugs (including marijuana) or other unauthorized or mind-altering or intoxicating substances while on SIMOS property (including parking areas and grounds), or while otherwise performing their work duties away from SIMOS. Included within this prohibition are lawful controlled substances, which have been illegally or improperly obtained. This policy does not prohibit the possession and proper use of lawfully prescribed drugs taken in accordance with the prescription.
Employees are also prohibited from having any such illegal or unauthorized controlled substances in their system while at work (including marijuana), and from having excessive amounts of otherwise lawful controlled substance in their systems. This policy does not apply to the authorized dispensation, distribution or possession of legal drugs where such activity is a necessary part of an employee’s assigned duties.
All employees are prohibited from distributing, dispensing, possessing or using alcohol while at work or on duty. Furthermore, off-duty alcohol use, while generally not prohibited by this policy, must not interfere with an employee’s ability to perform the essential functions of his/her job.
