Scope

All Just Automotive Recruitment employees and on-hired workers are required to adhere to this policy when the work they perform falls within the policy’s scope.

Responsibilities

Management is responsible for the implementation of this policy and all associated procedures. Employees and on-hired workers are responsible for presenting to work fit for duty and being fit for duty at all times during working hours.

Policy

Just Automotive Recruitment will as far as reasonably practicable ensure that employees and on-hired workers shall not have in their possession, nor use whilst at work, any form of alcohol or illegal drugs. This policy will be implemented by procedures which:
