Safe and Sober Transport - Business to Business Seminar

29 April 2012

Driving for work involves risks for the driver himself but also for other road users. Employers, managers and supervisors must, by law, manage the risks that employees face and create when they drive for work. After speeding, drink-driving remains the second biggest contributory factor leading to road crashes in Europe.

In companies, the alcohol interlock is used as a quality assurance tool to comply with a company's alcohol and drugs policy. With the alcohol interlock, a company can guarantee that they only use sober drivers for their transport services. Many companies have already had alcohol interlocks in their vehicles as an excellent guarantee of safe and sober transport services. More and more municipalities, county councils, public agencies and companies that source passenger and goods transport services are making alcohol interlocks a requirement in negotiating contracts and other public tenders.

In this context, ETSC together with the Road Safety Authority (RSA), the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) and the Police Force of Ireland (Garda Sí­ochána) are setting up a Business to Business seminar in Dublin on the implementation and use of alcohol interlocks in small, large and public companies. Debates will focus on the good practice in developing organisational policy and process for alcohol as well as implementation processes, timeline, costs, benefits and feedback from experienced companies.
