Fit For Duty

Effective May 1st, 2019 Halifax Water implemented a Fit For Duty policy. The purpose of this policy is to promote a safe and healthy work environment and to enhance the safety and health of Employees.

All Halifax Water work requires our Employees to be alert, to exercise good judgment and in some cases to be physically coordinated. In addition, much of the work performed by Halifax Water Employees may be potentially hazardous when Employees are not alert, do not exercise good judgment and/or are not physically coordinated. These factors could lead to a potentially serious Incident or Near Miss.

The use of Drugs and Alcohol in the workplace can adversely affect job performance, the health, safety or security of Employees, other persons, property, the environment, or individual and corporate reputation. Being unfit for duty through the use of Drugs and Alcohol affects our Employees’ ability to safely and properly perform their employment responsibilities. Halifax Water is a Drug and Alcohol‐free workplace. The health and safety of our Employees and the general public is Halifax Water’s highest priority. Consequently, the purpose of this Policy is to provide a working environment that is free of the effects of Drug and Alcohol use, and to ensure that all employees are treated fairly and consistently, with dignity and respect. Awareness and education for all Employees and early detection and access to treatment for those Employees with Drug and Alcohol addiction/dependencies helps to maintain a safe and healthy workplace.
