Why test for drugs and alcohol?

The Air Navigation Order 2000, made under the Civil Aviation Act (1982), stipulates that it is “an offence for a crew member of an aircraft, an air traffic controller, or a licence maintenance engineer to be under the influence of drink or drugs so as to impair his capacity to carry out his aviation related functions”. Airline operators therefore have good cause to implement a strict drug and alcohol testing policy.

The following is prohibited under the Civil Aviation Publication 19.

  • The reporting to work under the influence of alcohol, that is, with a blood alcohol level in excess of 0.02%.
  • The consumption of alcohol less than 8 hours prior to the specified reporting time at the workplace.
  • The reporting to work in any safety-critical area under the influence of any prescription or non-prescription medication or drug, unless the person is completely sure that the medication or treatment will not have any adverse effect on their ability to perform safely their duties.

As you can see the aviation industry has set out its drug and alcohol testing at work policy – have you?
