Concateno, Europe’s most experienced drug and alcohol testing company, is supporting Brake, the road safety charity, in raising awareness of the dangers of drink and drug driving to fleet managers.
Concateno has co-sponsored a new guidance sheet, entitled ‘Not a drop, not a drag’, produced by Brake in association with the UK’s Department for Transport. Aimed at fleet managers, the guidance sheet provides practical advice and case studies to help organisations educate their drivers as to the risks of driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs.
The sheet also offers management guidance on introducing an effective drugs and alcohol policy, covering best practice on employee consultation and education, the role of drug or alcohol tests and an explanation of employers’ rights with regard to testing. The guidance sheet has been produced to coincide with Road Safety Week’s (23-29 November) theme which is also ‘Not a drop, not a drag’.
