My facility is in the process of updating our Substance Abuse Policy.  I was wondering if any of you can share what your facility has for this topic.


Some questions that have come up during our review.


Do you allow any alcohol consumption while on duty?  If no, does this include lunch? Does it apply to your sales force or for things like contractor lunches?  What about salaried employees/staff at after hour functions at your facility?


Do you allow alcohol on the premises for after hours events?


Do you have a zero tolerance policy for alcohol or do you use a level that an employee cannot be above (0.02% 0.04%)


Can an on-call employee/staff drink at home when they are on-call?


If it is possible, I would appreciate receiving some of the policies that are used.
