Drugs & Alcohol
It is Navios Tankers' policy that no seafarer, whatever rank, will navigate the vessel or will operate its equipment while impaired by drugs or alcohol or where there is any risk of impairment.
The Company has banned any form of drugs, with the exception of prescribed medications, as well as the misuse of legitimate drugs. Random testing of all crew for banned substances and alcohol is permitted. In addition, the Company controls the use of all medical supplies on board managed vessels.
The Company has the right to dismiss and impose penalties, as per national and international regulations, to anybody using alcohol or banned substances on board the vessel, caught in possession of alcohol or banned substances, found to have been instrumental in bringing alcohol or banned substances on board and/or found to have a positive trace in any random testing sample, unless prior notice with authorization for use has been given by the Master.
