Black Pearl Maritime Security operates under the strict guiding principle of the following drug and alcohol abuse policy: No duties will be performed while under the influence of alcohol or drugs.

We have a zero tolerance approach to the consumption of alcohol and any form of unlawful drugs or illegal substances by any employee whilst providing any services to Black Pearl or any of Black Pearl clients, with the exception of prescribed drugs that has been approved by the company before embarkation.

Personnel on prescribed drugs must declare this fact to the Operations Team & Master upon joining the vessel, or upon prescription if prescribed during the period of service on board. If the prescribed drugs are having an effect on your performance or general health, you should immediately report this to your Team Leader.

Our Team Leaders are responsible for carrying out visual checks on all personnel and reposting back to Head Office any concerns. We undertake an ongoing programme of mandatory and random drug and alcohol testing for all our security personnel.
