Alcohol and substance misuse

The University is committed to and responsible for ensuring a healthy and safe environment for work, study and leisure.

We recognise that on occasion and for a variety of reasons, members of our staff or student community may suffer stress and/or ill health. Among these reasons may be problems related to alcohol or substance misuse which affect work and study.

Where appropriate the University will look to help the person affected deal with these problems, restoring well-being and a safe, healthy and congenial working and study situation.

Our measures are designed above all to prevent misuse. However they also clarify action to be taken when unacceptable quantities of alcohol are consumed, or controlled substances or dangerous drugs are misused.
