Description

As suppliers of roadside drug screening kits to all 44 police forces throughout, England, Scotland and Wales, we are all too aware of the shocking scale of the UK’s problem with drug driving. Over the years we have watched as drug drive arrest numbers have steadily risen, with many police forces reporting that drug drive arrests surpassed those for drink driving in both 2019 and 2020. Most notably one force reported more than 50% of those arrested were driving for work. These figures are not slowing down, with new research showing that one in twenty fatalities on our roads nationally, is now caused by drug drivers. It stands to reason, that if society is witnessing such an increase in drug usage then businesses are not immune to the problem. This event is for anyone who manages or supervises safety critical employees. Join us for an interactive discussion where we will outline best practice around drug and alcohol screening and offer insights into current police statistics on drug and drink driving. Educational resources will be available for attendees following the event.
