4.2. Alcohol and drugs
Alcohol and drugs can impair work performance and affect the health and safety of work colleagues.
Staff members are expected to be responsible in the use of alcohol and drugs during work hours, at University related functions and events and at any time if it may impair employment duties for the University. Staff members must not be impaired by illegal or legal drugs, including alcohol, while at work or conducting University business.
Poor work performance caused by alcohol or drug consumption or significant impairment that creates a safety risk is considered to be serious misconduct.
