(ii) the drugs do not affect your ability to safely perform your duties.
You must not drink alcohol at the workplace when working, attend work in circumstances where you have been affected by alcohol, or otherwise perform your duties while affected by alcohol. This requirement will not prevent you from consuming alcohol at a social or client function approved by the Company provided that:
you do not drink excessively at the function; and
you do not after the function, drive or operate machinery or do anything else which may pose a risk to the safety of yourself or others.
You must comply with the duties and obligations imposed on you under any policies, procedures or directions (collectively described herein as policies) of the Company as varied from time to time.

The Company may at its absolute discretion, vary, replace or remove any policies, or may introduce new Company policies, at any time.
In the event of any inconsistency between these Terms and any policy, these Terms will prevail to the extent of any inconsistency.
