Brake to run seminar for employers on tackling drink and drug driving
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.
The seminar, sponsored by Dtec, will take place from 12pm until 4pm on Wednesday 14 October 2015 in central Manchester. Places cost £70 + VAT for Brake Professional members and £120 + VAT for non-members.
Entitled Zero Tolerance: Tackling drink and drug driving , the seminar will see leading experts 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.
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.”
