Alcohol and Substance Abuse


AUI is committed to maintaining a workplace that is free from the influence of illegal drugs and the abuse of legal drugs and alcohol. Employees who use, sell or distribute illegal drugs or abuse alcohol or controlled substances pose unacceptable risks to safe, efficient and dependable operations. Employees are also prohibited from the abusive use of any legally obtained substance (including alcohol, over-the-counter medicines, prescription drugs or other controlled substances) to the extent that the individual experiences physical, emotional or social complications that threaten any person’s health, safety, well-being or performance in the workplace. The consumption of alcohol at any AUI facility or AUI-sponsored event is limited to exceptional circumstances and will be done only under strictly regulated conditions.
