Seminar on tackling drink and drug driving

Road safety charity Brake is urging employers to tackle drink and drug driving among at-work drivers, with a seminar looking into the latest research.

The seminar on helping employers ensure they have the right measures in place to prevent drink and drug driving 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.

Sponsored by Dtec, the seminar entitled Zero Tolerance: Tackling drink and drug driving  will provide essential training for organisations that employ at-work drivers.

Brake has announced that 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 is also said to feature an interactive session.

The seminar will take place from 12pm until 4pm on Wednesday 14 October 2015 in central Manchester. Places cost just £70 + VAT for Brake Professional members and £120 + VAT for non-members.
