At Matthew James, our commitment to excellence as international removal experts extends to the well-being and safety of our valued employees and customers. We firmly believe in the importance of conducting random tests, with full employee consent, to identify any potential issues related to drug or alcohol misuse. Our comprehensive policy is thoughtfully incorporated into our Employee Handbook and is an integral part of all new employment contracts. This ensures transparency and leaves no room for surprises, allowing our employees to fully understand and embrace the significance of this policy.
Our foremost objective is to maintain a workforce that is free from substances that could not only compromise an individual’s well-being but also tarnish the impeccable image of our entire company. Many of our employees are responsible for driving company vehicles, operating heavy machinery, and visiting customer premises throughout their workday. In these scenarios, safety is paramount, and we place a strong emphasis on creating an environment where everyone feels secure.
With our employees well-versed in our comprehensive testing process, we enforce a zero-tolerance policy regarding any individual found to be attending work under the influence of either drugs or alcohol. This unwavering stance underscores our commitment to safety, not only within our workforce but also within the broader community we serve as international removal experts.
Our Alcohol & Drug Testing Policy serves multiple critical purposes:
- Ensuring Safety: By identifying and addressing any potential substance misuse, we are better equipped to maintain the safety of our employees and customers alike.
- Enhancing Productivity: Reducing absenteeism and productivity losses due to drug or alcohol use is not only beneficial for our employees but also crucial for the efficiency and effectiveness of our services.
- Promoting a Substance-Free Culture: Our policy helps us foster a workplace culture that prioritizes well-being, health, and safety above all else.
- Mitigating Legal Liability: In a litigious world, our policy serves as an important protective measure for our company, reducing the risk of legal liability.
Our Alcohol & Drug Testing Policy is a testament to our dedication to creating a safe, productive, and professional environment. We believe that safeguarding our employees and customers from the potential risks associated with substance misuse is a fundamental responsibility. By upholding these standards, we continue to set the bar for excellence in the removals industry, ensuring that every relocation experience is as safe and efficient as possible.
