DRUG FREE WORKPLACE

Universal Training Institute adheres to all requirements of the Drug-Free Schools and Communities Act amendment of 1989, Public Law 101-226. UTI is committed to protecting the safety, health and wellbeing of all employees, students and other individuals in our environment and do not tolerate the use, distribution or possession of any illegal drugs. We recognize that alcohol abuse and drug use pose a significant threat to the goals of UTI. We have established a drug- free environment that balances our respect for individuals with the need to maintain an alcohol and drug free school. UTI encourages students to voluntarily seek help with drug and alcohol problems. UTI’s drug-free workplace is applicable during all working and school  hours, whenever anyone is conducting business or representing the organization, while on UTI property, at school-sponsored events, and during offsite clinical operations and at any-time while engaged in a learning or working activity at Universal Training Institute.

It is a violation of our drug-free workplace policy to use, possess, sell, trade, and/or offer for sale alcohol, illegal drugs or intoxicants.

Any UTI student or employee who is convicted of a criminal drug violation in the workplace must notify the school within three days following the conviction. UTI will take the appropriate action within 30 days of notification.

All information received by UTI through the drug-free workplace is confidential communication. Access to this information is limited to those who have a legitimate need to know in compliance with relevant laws, U. S. Department of Education disclosure requirements, and UTI’s management policies.

One of the goals of UTI’s drug-free workplace is to encourage students and employees to voluntarily seek help with alcohol and/or drug problems. If, however, a person violates the policy, the consequences are serious.

In the case of applicants for admission, their violation of the drug-free workplace policy will result in any admission to the school being withdrawn.

If a student violates the policy, he or she will be subject to progressive disciplinary action and may be required to enter rehabilitation. A student who is required to enter rehabilitation but fails to successfully complete it and /or repeatedly violates the policy will be dismissed from school. Nothing in this policy prohibits student from being disciplined or discharged for other violations and/or performance problems.

Universal Training Institute recognizes that alcohol and drug abuse and addiction are treatable illnesses. We also realize that early intervention and support improve the success of rehabilitation. To support our students and employees, our drug-free workplace:

  • Encourages students to seek help if they are concerned that they or their family members may have a drug and or/alcohol problem.
  • Encourages employees /students to utilize the services of qualified professionals in the community to assess the seriousness of suspected drug or alcohol problems and identify appropriate sources of help

 

Shared Responsibility:

A safe and productive drug-free workplace is achieved through cooperation and shared responsibility. Students, employees, and management have important roles to play.

Any student or employee should not attend class or report to work when his or her ability to function in a classroom or work setting is impaired due to on-or off-duty use of alcohol or other drugs.

In addition, employees and students are encouraged to:

  • Be concerned about working in a safe environment.
  • Support fellow students and workers in seeking help.
  • Report dangerous behavior to their supervisor or instructor.

It is the supervisor or instructor’s responsibility to report all violations to the proper UTI Administrator and/or Department head.

 

Communication

Communicating our drug-free workplace & school environment policy to supervisors, employees, and students is critical to our success. To ensure that all employees and all students are aware of their role in supporting our drug-free workplace program, the policy will be reviewed at orientation sessions for new employees and orientations for new students.
