The health, wellbeing and safety of personnel are of paramount importance to McDermott Aviation. All individuals have a right to be safe when present at a McDermott Aviation site. Alcohol and Other Drugs (AOD), when present in persons in the workplace, have the potential to increase risk of harm in the workplace and adversely impact upon fitness for work.
McDermott Aviation has a duty of care to minimise the risk of accident, incident and injury in the workplace arising from the consumption of alcohol or other drugs. The purpose of this policy is to outline the strategies and processes that will be used by McDermott Aviation to manage the risks associated with use, or recent use, of alcohol or other drugs by persons in the workplace.
McDermott Aviation takes a multi-strategy approach that incorporates education, support, testing and performance management. The policy is based on safety outcomes and not whether a positive test result is illicit or legal. This policy also recognises permissible therapeutic drug use under the guidance of a physician or pharmacist.
