  • ISO 9001 Drug & Alcohol Policy Review Service. A current and legally defensible drug & alcohol policy is extremely important. It should underpin the way in which an organisation will approach (for example) the issue of alcohol and / or substance misuse in the workplace, provide guidance to managers / supervisors and HR professionals on the extent and limitations to enforcement, provide guidance on the procedures that may be engaged once a decision is made to challenge an individual, address how dependency will be tackled under the varying circumstances, address how medication will be managed and how to deal with issues such as refusal or an individual who attempts to vitiate testing by leaving early. At DATS we provide an ISO 9001 certified Drug & Alcohol policy review service ensuring that current standards are adopted and enforcement procedures properly delineated.
