DRUG AND ALCOHOL PREVENTION PROGRAM
NOTICE TO STUDENTS AND EMPLOYEES
Ohio State College of Barber Styling has established a Drug and Alcohol Free Awareness Program (DAFAP). The DAFAP encompasses the following four phases:
WARNING OF THE DANGERS OF DRUG AND ALCOHOL ABUSE:
Drug and alcohol use impairs memory, alertness and achievement. It erodes the capacity to perform, think and act responsibly. It may be grounds for termination of your enrollment with the institution or other legal action. SCHEDULE A specifically details the Uses and Effects as it relates to alcohol.
THIS INSTITUTION HAS A POLICY OF MAINTAINING A
DRUG AND ALCOHOL FREE LEARNING ENVIRONMENT
All students and employees are hereby notified that the unlawful manufacture, distribution, dispensing, possession or use of illicit drugs and alcohol is prohibited in the institution's learning environment. Any student or employee must notify the institution of any criminal drug and alcohol statute conviction for a violation occurring in the learning environment no later than five days after such conviction. In compliance with the Drug-Free Workplace Act of 1988, the institution's "workplace" consists of the following locations:
Ohio State College of Barber Styling, 4614 E. Broad St., Columbus, OH 43213, or, any teaching site, or any '"off-site" location (i.e. field trips, job placement, luncheons, meetings, etc.) where the activities are in any way related to the institution.
LISTING OF THE AVAILABLE LOCAL DRUG COUNSELING,
REHABILITATION AND ASSISTANCE PROGRAMS:
Please refer to SCHEDULE B.
NON-COMPLIANCE WITH THE TERMS OF THIS INSTITUTION'S
DRUG-FREE WORKPLACE STATEMENT
Non-compliance will result in the following action being taken by this institution:
a. The student or employee would be required to actively participate in a drug or alcohol abuse assistance or rehabilitation program approved by federal, state or local health, law enforcement or other appropriate agency. Attached SCHEDULE C contains a description of the applicable legal sanctions under local, State, and Federal law for unlawful possession, use, or distribution of illicit drugs and alcohol.
b. Community service with one of the above stated agencies.
c. If at any time an OSBC faculty member believes a student is under the influence of alcohol or illicit drugs, that student will be dismissed for the day. Upon returning, the student will be subject to a hearing to discuss the matter and to further document our no tolerance Drug and Alcohol Policy. A second occurrence will prompt written notice of the event to the Ohio State Barber Board and may result in immediate expulsion.
ALCOHOL USES AND EFFECTS
Alcohol consumption causes a number of marked changes in behavior. Even low doses significantly impair the judgment and coordination required to drive a car safely, increasing the likelihood that the driver will be involved in an accident. Low to moderate doses of alcohol also increase the incidence of a variety of aggressive acts, including spouse and child abuse. Moderate to high doses of alcohol cause marked impairments in higher mental functions, severely altering a person's ability to learn and remember information. Very high doses cause respiratory depression and death. If combined with other depressants of the central nervous system, much lower doses of alcohol will produce the effects just described.
Repeated use of alcohol can lead to dependence. Sudden cessation of alcohol intake is likely to produce withdrawal symptoms, including severe anxiety, tremors, hallucinations, and convulsions. Alcohol withdrawal can be life-threatening. Long-term consumption of large quantities of alcohol, particularly when combined with poor nutrition, can also lead to permanent damage to vital organs such as the brain and the liver.
Mothers who drink alcohol during pregnancy may give birth to infants with fetal alcohol syndrome. These infants have irreversible physical abnormalities and mental retardation. In addition, research indicates that children of alcoholic parents are at greater risk than other youngsters of becoming alcoholics.
