A Drug Free Workplace Policy is one of the core components to creating a Drug Free Workplace Program.
All of the choices you will make in your program will connect to your policy. The goal when creating a drug free workplace policy is two-fold. First, you want to send a clear message about what is prohibited. Second, you want to encourage employees to voluntarily seek help with drug or alcohol problems.
Do-It-Yourself Policy Builder
Our online policy builder is FREE and has been designed to be quick and easy to use.
Our policy builder’s question-answer format allows you to select the options that best match your company’s needs.
The builder compiles your answers and upon completion you will have a policy that you can access and download.
Please note that our online policy builder will allow you to create a standard* Drug Free Workplace Policy. The policy can be further customized or revised after downloading as needed.
*Policies vary from industry to industry. You will need to know the standards for your own industry. If you are a Government contracted organization your policy requirements may be more extensive. You will need to find out what your governing agency requires you to have in your policy. We are not a Government Organization.
