Content

Safety Critical – Driving for Work – managing the risks of intoxicants (defined as drugs and alcohol).

Driving for work involves a risk not only for the driver, but also for fellow workers and members of the public, such as pedestrians and other road users.
Driving for work includes any person who drives on a road as part of their work either in:

A company vehicle: Their own vehicle and receives an allowance from their employer for miles driven. As an employer or self-employed person, you must, by law, manage the risks that may arise when you or your employees drive for work. Although employers cannot directly control roadway conditions they can promote and influence safe driving behaviour amongst their employees.
