The question of whether fork lift truck operators should be allowed to operate under the influence of alcohol or drugs may seem straightforward. However, the mechanisms for ensuring that employees are always free of any and all substances that increase the risks of accidents are less so.
• Should fork lift truck operators be allowed to work under the influence of alcohol and drugs?
• If you answer no – then do you have a policy for testing employees for alcohol and drugs?
• If not – should you?
• Is such a policy legal? If it is then how can it be enforced?
In this highly focussed session Richard Evers of Synergy Health plc will explain the risks associated with alcohol and drugs in the workplace. He will answer these and other important questions, drawing on the practical experience of working with a wide range of companies and organisations.
