Question 578 September 2007

Alcohol abuse by non-contracted party

Our company operates a Policy on Alcohol and Drugs which applies to employees and contractors (pre-employment, 'with cause' and random testing for alcohol and drugs). A serious incident occurred recently involving a delivery driver on one of our industrial sites. My company has no contractual relationship with the driver's employer and so the Policy on Alcohol and Drugs was not considered to be relevant to this incident. It does however point to a gap in the application of this policy.

Is this something other members have considered or addressed and if so how?
