Even small amounts of alcohol or drugs affect driving and could cause a devastating crash. Drivers are also at risk of impairment from some over-the-counter and prescription medication, and driving the morning after consuming alcohol or drugs. Employers have a responsibility to ensure their drivers are alcohol and drug free through effective policies, education and testing procedures.
Our academic and practitioner speakers will discuss:
- why drink and drug driving are important road safety issues, and the risks associated with them;
- how some over-the-counter and prescription medication can impair driving;
- policies to help mitigate driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs;
- measures to help employers identify drink and drug drivers; and
- measures to raise awareness of impaired driving through education and communication programmes.
