Drug Free Workforce Policy


In recognition of the continuing problem of substance abuse impacting the health and welfare of employees and jeopardizing the safety of operations, it is the policy of the Northern California Chapter, National Electrical Contractors Association (NECA) and the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local 684 (IBEW) to deal aggressively with the problems of drug use and alcohol abuse in the workplace and to seek the assistance of all of its members and other employees in this endeavor.

The procedures and guidelines contained in this document detail essential information about the administration of the NECA/IBEW Drug-Free Workforce Program.  This document is also a resource to assist in the day-to-day matters that may emerge in the course of utilizing the Drug and Alcohol Policy (DAP).  It is recognized that no set of standards and guidelines, however complete, can accommodate all possible combinations of circumstances that may arise.  Instead, these procedures are designed to be a working tool and foundation for use, and are to be applied using basic fairness, good judgment, and common sense. Any reference herein to one gender is intended to include both genders.

There is a vital interest by all electrical construction industry partners in maintaining the highest standards for the employee work environment in order to ensure the efficient operations necessary to provide reliable products and services to customers.  Therefore, it is desirable to establish a strong policy to promote a safe and secure work environment free of the use of illicit drugs, unauthorized use of controlled substances, and the abuse of ethyl alcohol.

  1. Initial-hire Testing
