Introduction 5

8 Introduction Canadian National (CN) is committed to the health and safety of its employees, the public and the environment in order to become the safest railway in North America. As part of this commitment, CN, its employees and unions, have a responsibility to maintain a safe workplace, free from the negative effects of alcohol and other drugs. As such, CN has zero tolerance for impairment in the workplace. Management, unions and employees are concerned with alcohol and other drug use because it can affect the health, safety, performance and conduct of employees on the job, and impose hardships on the employer, employee, co-workers and family. In this light, CN has introduced this policy as an important component of its overall safety program to minimize risk in all operations. Policy Scope This policy applies to all employees of CN and its subsidiaries who are based in Canada. Those employees in safety sensitive positions are held to a higher standard and are subject to more serious consequences because of the direct impact that these positions have on safety. In addition, Canadian-based employees who operate into the United States are subject to the rules and regulations governing cross-border operations. U.S.-based employees of CN are subject to the rules and regulations of that jurisdiction. Because company concern for safety extends to the operations of contractors and tenants, they are also expected to adhere to these standards, in whole or in part, as a condition of contract or lease. Policy Statement All employees are required to report and remain fit for duty, free of the negative effects of alcohol and other drugs. It is strictly prohibited to be on duty or to be in control of a CN vehicle or equipment while under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, including the after-effects of such use. Specifically, the use, possession, presence in the body, distribution or sale of illegal drugs while on duty (including during breaks), on or off company premises, on company business, or on company premises including vehicles and equipment, is prohibited. Possession, distribution or sale of beverage alcohol, and the consumption of any form of alcohol, is prohibited while on duty (including during breaks), on company premises, including vehicles and equipment, off company premises, or on company business. Employees are expected to use over-the-counter or prescription medications responsibly. All employees, in particular those in safety sensitive positions or who can be in the control of a CN vehicle or equipment, are responsible for investigating whether the medication will affect safe operations. Employees are required to check with their own physician or pharmacist, report any concerns to CN s designated medical provider and abide by their recommendations to ensure safety. Policy 6

9 Prevention and Assistance Personal problems affecting an employee s performance, health or safety can often be overcome with proper education, counseling or treatment. CN is committed to helping any employee who may have a problem related to alcohol or any other drug. However, the employee must be willing to address the problem before it has any impact on performance. Seeking assistance is the preferred method of dealing with these problems. In these cases, the employee s employment or advancement opportunities will not be affected, provided approved rehabilitation is undertaken and results in satisfactory control of the problem. Employees should encourage co-workers who may have a current or emerging alcohol or drug problem to contact the Employee and Family Assistance Program (EFAP), where assistance will be provided in line with the company s EFAP policy. Using the services provided by the EFAP does not eliminate the requirement to meet performance expectations. In addition to the educational program outlined in the EFAP policy, CN provides educational and awareness programs for employees concerning this policy and its application. Available Means to Assess and Monitor Policy Compliance Supervisory Management of Performance: Supervisors will be trained as to their responsibilities in administering this policy. Medical Assessments of Fitness for Duty Employees who work in or transfer into safety sensitive or safety critical positions are required to undergo pre-placement and periodic medical assessments that evaluate the impact, if any, of medical conditions on fitness for work. As part of these assessments, heath conditions such as substance abuse disorders can be identified, assessed and monitored through medical examination, and biological testing (including drug testing). Where an employee in a safety sensitive or safety critical position is diagnosed as having a substance use disorder, medical monitoring, including drug and alcohol testing, may be required to ensure on going fitness for duty in this position. Reasonable Cause and Post Accident Testing Biological testing for the presence of drugs in urine or alcohol in the breath is conducted where reasonable cause exists to suspect alcohol or drug use or possession in violation of this policy, including after an accident or incident. Post accident testing is done after any significant accident or incident where an experienced operating officer, upon consideration of the circumstances, determines that the cause may involve or is likely to involve a rule violation and/or employee judgment. In cases of reasonable cause or post accident testing, any employee whose breath alcohol concentration is over 0.04 or who tests positive for illegal drugs would be considered to be in violation of this policy. Employment Contracts Employees may be monitored on the compliance of this policy, including testing for drugs and alcohol, as part of their employment contract. This would be established as a condition of continuing employment or reinstatement after dismissal. Policy 7

10 Searches CN reserves the right to conduct unannounced searches for alcohol or drugs where there are reasonable grounds to believe they are present on premises, vehicles and equipment owned, leased, or otherwise controlled by CN. Impaired Driving Charge or Conviction Employees who require a valid driver s license in the performance of their duties or who operate railway equipment and where driving privileges are lost or suspended due to an impaired driving charge or conviction while not on duty, nor in a CN vehicle, nor on CN premises, must immediately report such loss to their supervisor. A medical assessment will then determine whether the employee suffers from a substance use disorder. Rule G and Rule G By Pass This policy supplements but does not modify the General Safety Rule 1.1, Canadian Rail Operating Rules (C.R.O.R.) Rule G and the Union/Management Agreement on The Control of Drug and/or Alcohol Abuse. (Rule G By Pass). Nothing in this policy reduces the requirements of Rule G (given in the policy guidelines) or changes the provisions of the Rule G By Pass agreement (summarized in the policy guidelines). Hosting* To demonstrate CN s commitment to a safe, healthy workplace free of the negative effects of alcohol or other drug use, the company supports and provides guidance for responsible hosting practices, including designated driver programs. Violations Violation by an employee will result in corrective action up to and including dismissal. Violation by contractors or tenants will be considered a breach of their contract or lease. Refusal to complete the testing process set out under this policy is considered a policy violation. Authority The Senior Vice-President, Network Operations and the Vice-President, People, in consultation with other Vice-Presidents and Divisional Heads, are jointly responsible to develop and implement information, education, testing and follow-up required under this policy. Supporting Guidelines See your supervisor for detailed guidelines supporting this policy which address implementation, testing procedures, consequences of policy violation, reinstatement requirements, procedures for EFAP referral, designated safety sensitive positions, and other related issues. * Hosting Practices on page 29 Policy 8

11 GUIDELINES In support of a safe work environment, the following guidelines have been developed to clarify and implement Canadian National s (CN) Policy to Prevent Workplace Alcohol and Drug Problems. In the event that a situation arises that is not covered in these guidelines, please contact your supervisor or Human Resources representative. Guidelines 9

12 POLICY STANDARDS To minimize the risk of unsafe and unsatisfactory performance due to the use of alcohol or other drugs, all employees must report and remain fit for duty, and respect the following standards: Alcohol Possession, distribution or sale of beverage alcohol, and the use of any form of alcohol, is prohibited while on duty (including during breaks on or off CN property), on company business, or on company premises, including vehicles and equipment. Limited exceptions to this restriction will be allowed with prior approval of a Vice-President. This does not limit retail outlets and licensed business establishments from carrying out their normal operations. Presence in the body of alcohol above a BAC of 0.04, when on duty or on company business or premises, is also prohibited for all employees. In any situation where employees are to be tested with reasonable cause including after an accident or incident, they are prohibited from using alcohol within eight hours of the accident or incident, or until tested or advised that a test will not be necessary. Illegal Drugs The use, possession, presence in the body, distribution or sale of illegal drugs is prohibited while on duty (including during breaks), on company business, or on company premises, including vehicles and equipment. Any presence in the body of illegal drugs, as demonstrated by a positive drug test with reasonable cause or after an accident, is in violation of this policy. Medications All employees are required to use medications, both prescribed and over-the-counter, responsibly. The possession of prescribed medications without a legally obtained prescription, and the distribution, offer or sale of prescription medications is prohibited. The intentional misuse of medications (e.g. using the medication not as it has been prescribed, using someone else s prescription medication, combining medication and/or alcohol use against direction) is prohibited while on duty (including during breaks), on company business, or on company premises, including vehicles and equipment. Medications of particular concern are those that inhibit or may inhibit an employee s ability to perform a job safely and productively. (See Appendix Medication Guidelines). All employees are expected to manage potential impairment during working hours due to the legitimate use of medications. Employees are required to contact their personal physician, pharmacist or designated medical provider to determine if the medication or combination of medications can have a negative impact on performance, and to take appropriate steps to manage any associated risk. All employees holding a safety sensitive position and in the control of a CN vehicle or equipment are expected to investigate whether the medication will affect safe operations by checking with their own physician or pharmacist and report any concerns to CN s designated medical provider (at ). The medical provider will assess the situation to determine whether the employee can safely perform regular duties. Where it is determined that continued use of the medication will affect the individual s ability to operate safely, employees are required to respect any recommendations including modified work, if needed and available, in order to eliminate safety risks. Guidelines 10

13 Employees On-Call It is the employee s responsibility to remain fit for duty when on call. For the purposes of this policy, unionized employees receiving compensation for being on call are considered on duty. If an employee is not on call and unexpected circumstances arise (e.g. an emergency situation) when he/she is requested to perform unscheduled services while under the influence of alcohol, drugs, or medications, it is the responsibility of that employee to refuse the request and ask that the call to work be delegated to another employee. The inability of an employee in this situation to accept a work assignment will not result in corrective action. Implications for C.R.O.R. Rule G and Rule G By Pass Agreement The requirements of this policy align with and supplement the requirements of Rule G and the Rule G By Pass agreement. CROR Rule G: The use of intoxicants or narcotics by employees subject to duty, or their possession or use while on duty, is prohibited. The use of mood altering agents by employees subject to duty, or their possession or use while on duty, is prohibited except as prescribed by a doctor. The use of drugs, mood altering agents or medications, including those prescribed by a doctor, which, in any way, will adversely affect their ability to work safely, by employees subject to duty, or on duty, is prohibited. Employees must know and understand the possible effects of drugs, medication or mood altering agents, including those prescribed by a doctor, which, in any way, will adversely affect their ability to work safely. Rule G By Pass Where employees are eligible for Rule G By Pass under the terms of the Union/Management Agreement on The Control of Drug and/or Alcohol Abuse, the employee will not be considered in violation of the Policy to Prevent Workplace Alcohol and Drug Problems or in violation of Rule G but will be subject to the terms of the Rule G By Pass Agreement (please refer to HR for the full terms of this agreement). By Pass agreement covers employees from UTU, TCRC, RTC, IBEW, BMWE Applies to employees subject to Rule G Applies where employees who are under the influence of alcohol or drugs on the job are reported by a co-worker or where they are reported by a supervisor before the start of their work shift. (CN Police are considered to be supervisors for the purposes of Rule G By Pass). Employees are eligible for only 1 Rule G By Pass in their career at CN. Under a Rule G By Pass, employees are required to comply with the evaluation and any subsequent recommendations. Guidelines 11

14 Medical Assessments of Fitness for Duty Employees who work in safety sensitive positions (including safety critical positions) are required to undergo medical assessments before placement in a safety sensitive position; on a periodic basic, as long as they work in a safety sensitive position; and, as medically indicated when they have a health condition that can affect the safety of operations. Part of the medical assessments of fitness for duty, employees will be assessed for substance use disorders as well as other medical conditions that can have an impact on safety. Assessments will be done according to good medical practices and will be managed by Medical Services When employees in a safety sensitive position are diagnosed as having a substance use disorder, they may be required to comply with a relapse prevention agreement in order to maintain fitness for duty in a safety sensitive position. This agreement is a confidential, therapeutic agreement between the employee and Medical Services who will monitor fitness for duty and compliance with the relapse prevention agreement. The exact terms of the relapse prevention agreement will be established by the medical professional monitoring fitness for duty based on good medical practices. Where the monitoring process has established that an employee does not comply with a relapse prevention agreement, management will be informed that the employee is not medically fit for work in a safety sensitive position because of non-compliance with this agreement. Return to work in the safety sensitive position would then be governed by the provisions of a Contract for Continuing Employment established between the Union and the Company, subject to meeting the requirements for fitness for duty. Guidelines 12
