Occupational Safety and Health Act 1994
Dangerous Drugs Act 1952
This Drugs Policy is intended for use by a Company to ensure that all of its employees are aware of the risks associated with the use of illegal drugs that do not require a prescription and "legal highs" (also known as psychoactive drugs), as well as the fact that the use of such substances is not permitted under any circumstances.
Many of the problems that arise from abusing medicines that do not require a doctor's prescription are comparable to the difficulties that arise from abusing alcohol. However, employers and employees need to be made acutely aware that the illegal use of medications not prescribed to them constitutes a criminal offence.
In addition, the usage of illegal drugs can frequently lead to a more rapid deterioration than the overuse of alcohol.
As a result, an employer needs to take a different strategy when dealing with these two issues.
