Drug Free Workplace

It is GSI’s desire to provide a healthy and safe workplace. To promote this goal, employees are required to report to work in appropriate mental and physical condition to perform their jobs in a satisfactory manner.

GSI does not tolerate the presence of illegal drugs, the illegal use of legal drugs, or the use of alcohol during the workday. No employee may use, possess, distribute, sell, or be under the influence of alcohol or drugs while on duty or while operating GSI’s equipment or vehicles. The legal use of prescription drugs is permitted on the job only if it does not impair an employee’s ability to perform the essential functions of the job effectively and in a safe manner that does not endanger other individuals in the workplace. Violations of this policy may lead to disciplinary action, up to and including termination.

Any employee who is convicted of violating criminal drug statutes must notify an appropriate officer or senior official of GSI of that conviction within five days of the conviction. Failure to do so may lead to disciplinary action.

Employees who would like to discuss possible accommodations, or have questions on this policy or issues with drug or alcohol use in the workplace, may raise their concerns with their direct supervisor or Human Resources without fear of reprisal.
