Our policy is designed to comply with federal and state laws requiring tests, and with the demands of our customers who require us to drug test.
As a condition of initial and continued employment, Horizon Shipbuilding requires all employees to report to work and perform their duties without any unlawful or mind altering drugs in their systems.

You must maintain any prescription medication in the original container labeled with the name of the employee and the prescribing physician.

- If involved in a job-related accident, which is in the discretion of management, caused or could cause recordable injury or property damage.
- Where the Company has reasonable cause to believe that an employee has violated its Drug and Alcohol Policy.
- As a part of a “random” system of periodically testing employees without advance notice.
- Upon return from a leave or layoff.
- When required to do so by our customers.
- As part of any rehabilitation/probation program.
Employees who operate vehicles on the street, which in excess of 26,000 pounds will also be tested as required by the Federal Highway Administration and State Motor Carrier Safety Regulations, including at recertification physical examinations. Alcohol testing will be done where required by law or as part of post-accident, reasonable cause testing, or rehabilitation-related testing.
Before testing, all individuals will be given the opportunity to report their use of all medications on a written form.
Anyone who needs help for drug or alcohol problems should immediately seek assistance and quit abusing drugs and alcohol before he or she is caught in violation of the policy.
