Halewood Internaitonal has a clear company policy on alcohol and drug use (agreed with Unite the Union). There is an ongoing programme of random testing periodically carried out on-site by an external company to monitor compliance and, accordingly, improve employees’ safety in the workplace. Halewood International has used external trainers to present to staff on the risks and potential consequences of alcohol or drug use.
From time to time the company circulates relevant materials relating to responsible drinking and the company intranet features a permanent link to drinkaware.co.uk. The company is committed to promoting industry initiatives within the business as well as externally and in addition to this takes every opportunity to educate employees on responsible drinking.
Company social events are held off-site and non-alcoholic beverages are always made available, free-of-charge, to encourage responsible behaviour.
All the company's products and marketing materials contain links to drinkaware.co.uk.
