Is your driver fit to drive today? It’s a question that a passenger could ask at any time. Would you be able to prove that they are?

Any alcohol in the body increases the chance of an accident by three times. Many legally prescribed drugs can impair a driver to the point that they should not be working.

A robust company drug and alcohol policy should give you the confidence to know that your drivers are not impaired by alcohol or drugs, prescribed or otherwise. It’s also essential that those administering the policy are trained and know the procedures to follow to ensure HSE compliance.

Whether you are in the early stages of implementing a policy, or require a refresher course for staff members, AlcoDigital provides award-winning, CPD-accredited training across the UK.

Attending its one-day course – from £99 per delegate – ensures that you can effectively test drivers for alcohol and drugs in the workplace.
