Brake provides training for employers on tackling drink and drug driving

Road safety charity Brake is urging employers to tackle drink and drug driving among at-work drivers.

To help employers ensure they have the right measures in place to prevent drink and drug driving, Brake has announced a seminar on the topic.

The seminar will share the latest research into drink and drug driving and its affects as well as providing guidance on workplace interventions and the next steps in roadside enforcement technology.

Ellie Pearson, professional engagement manager at Brake, said: “It’s really important that any organisation employing at-work drivers takes steps to tackle drink and drug driving. This seminar is a fantastic opportunity for employers to hear first-hand from leading practitioners about the issue, and I’d urge organisations to attend.” 

The seminar, sponsored by Dtec, is entitled Zero Tolerance: Tackling drink and drug driving and will provide essential training for any organisation employing at-work drivers.

Leading experts will discuss the latest research into the dangers of driving after consuming any amount of alcohol or drugs and effective interventions, such as random testing and education programmes. The seminar will also feature an interactive session.

The seminar will take place from 12pm until 4pm on Wednesday, October 14, in central Manchester. Places cost £70 + VAT for Brake Professional members and £120 + VAT for non-members.
