Policy Purpose

The Board will generally accept claims when a worker, who is drunk or intoxicated, suffers personal injury as a result of an accident arising out of and in the course of employment only when the accident represents a risk of employment that the worker was less able to avoid due to intoxication. However, when the accident is shown to be due solely to the drunkenness or intoxication of the worker, the claim is not accepted.
