Drug Free Workplace

In order to provide a safe and secure operation for members, guests and employees, the USSCMC is a Drug Free Workplace.

It is our policy that there shall be no use or possession of recreational drugs on Sailing Center property. Further, any employee who reports for work intoxicated or whose job performance is affected by use of recreational drugs prior to the workday will be subject to immediate dismissal.

The term recreational drugs includes illegal drugs and controlled substances. Prescribed drugs or caffeine are not considered recreational drugs.

Reports regarding incidents involving recreational drugs shall be submitted immediately to the Executive Director.  A USSCMC employee is subject to drug testing based on: (a) the observation of behavioral, physical or performance indicators that the employee’s work performance is not safe or professional (b) for incidents of post-casualty injury or accident; or (c) for other job-related reasons within the discretion of the USSCMC.

An employee who tests positive will be given an option to take a second test at his/her expense. Any positive test result is grounds for immediate termination. Failure to report for an appointed drug test may be grounds for termination.

A Medical Review Officer (MRO) and licensed physician will review all medical records at the laboratory. The MRO is responsible for determining if an employee is taking any prescription medication(s), and will then report to the Executive Director if an employee has tested positively or negatively. No other records are forwarded to the USSCMC.

USSCMC’s drug policy also applies to off-site settings or functions outside normal working hours when the employee is acting in his/her capacity as a USSCMC representative or such conduct otherwise affects his/her job performance.

Smoke Free Workplace

The USSCMC prohibits smoking in its main building, the shop, on the docks, or in the boats.

Staff shall not smoke in front of members, junior members, regatta participants or summer campers, or while on duty.

Appearance Guidelines

Hair: Neatly groomed, clean, tidy without extreme or exaggerated color or styling.

Personal Hygiene: Since all staff and instructors are representatives of the USSCMC, it is expected that you will pay the highest regard to maintaining a high level of cleanliness and prevention of body odor.

Accessories: Cosmetics, cologne, perfume, hats, and jewelry must be used in moderation. Nose rings, and any other body piercings (except earrings) are not acceptable jewelry.

Under no circumstances will any staff wear any jewelry that might pose a safety hazard in the execution of their job duties.

Uniforms: Staff members are expected to present a professional appearance on and off the USSCMC property. Uniforms will be issued to staff members whose jobs require clothing necessary for a particular assignment or for recognition by the public. If a uniform is issued to you, you are required to wear it during any period of time for which you are compensated by or are recognized by the public as a representative of USSCMC. The employee is responsible for keeping the uniform properly maintained and presentable. All attire worn when on-duty must be clean, neat, properly fitting with no holes, tears, or stains.

Footwear: During the work day 8:20 to 4:20 shall wear water appropriate, closed-toe, non-skid closed toe footwear. No bare feet at any time, in the building or on property, or on the waterfront.

PFDS:  PFDs with holes or tears should not be used. PFDs should be of the proper size, so they fit snugly. When afloat in an official capacity, PFDs must be worn and zipped up whenever on the water. 


In order to create a more comfortable environment for learning, USSCMC employees are not to engage in the use of profanity or any language or verbiage that would be reasonably construed as sexist, racist, off-color, vulgar, uncivil, or otherwise inappropriate to their status as professional employees.

Dispensing of Medications

The Executive Director and any designee will be responsible for dispensing medications within his /her control during working hours.


Employees should recognize their responsibility as role models for their profession and conduct themselves as such in a professionally responsible manner in any setting or gathering where others could perceive them as representing the USSCMC. Personal presentation is largely a matter of opinion. However, USSCMC policies regarding the dress, personal presentation and behavior are designed to maintain a certain level of professionalism and socially acceptable appearance in all employees. Emphasis on a happy, welcoming, and helpful presentation is the foundation to the high guest service objective of Summer Camp. Employees must adhere to these requirements in all matters concerning personal appearance, grooming and decorum.
