Driver impairment in the workplace is a very serious issue that can have significant impacts on both the individuals involved and your organisation as a whole. There are several forms of driver impairment, including alcohol impairment, and drug impairment.
Alcohol impairment, for example, can slow reaction times, reduce the ability to concentrate, and impair judgment, making it dangerous (and illegal) for individuals to drive a vehicle. Similarly, drug impairment will also cause significant issues with perception, reaction time, and coordination, and can lead to mistakes that could result in serious accidents.
In the workplace, driver impairment can result in increased risk of accidents and injuries. Furthermore, it can also harm the reputation of your organisation, leading to legal and financial consequences.
Don't wait to be reactive to a driver impairment situation. To minimize the risk of driver impairment in the workplace, it is important for organisations to have clear policies and procedures in place to address the issue, as well as to provide preventative training and resources to help employees understand the dangers of driver impairment and how to avoid it.
The Driver Impairment workshop is designed to raise awareness of the consequences of alcohol and drugs, better empowering your workforce to make more informed and safer decisions before getting behind the wheel of a vehicle.
