The alarming truth about drug driving in the workplace

Just how common is drug driving in the workplace? We’re joined by Lesley O Brien , managing director of Freightlink Europe, D.tec International managing director Ean Lewin and former collision investigator and fleet risk prevention specialist Andrew Drewary as we take a look at some of the shocking truths around drug driving.

  • Should testing of drivers be mandatory?
  • Who’s responsibility is it, employer or employee?
  • What are the consequences?

As well as this, we also take a look at the impact of the traffic police shows that we see on TV. Do they do more harm than good?
