Random Roadside Drug Testing Commenced on the 13th of April 2017

A commencement order on 13th April 2017 gave effect to the Road Traffic Act 2016. This legislation will make it illegal for all motorists, including those who drive in the course of their work, to drive while under the influence of alcohol, cannabis, cocaine or heroin. Tests may also be conducted for the presence of alcohol, benzodiazepines and other prescribed medication. 

Reporting for Work under the Influence of Drugs and Alcohol

Under Section 13(1) b the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 all employees must ensure that they are not under the influence of an intoxicant (defined as including drugs and alcohol and any combination of drugs or of drugs and alcohol) to the extent that he or she is in such a state as to endanger his or her own safety, health or welfare at work or that of any other person.  Under Section 13(1)b of the Safety Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 employers are obliged to remove any employee from their place of work, who reports for or is on duty under the influence of intoxicants.

This high value seminar will outline a best practice approach for Irish businesses who are legally obliged to manage the risks of employees who drive in the course of their work.

A delegation of 21 qualified nurses from China recently visited Waterford and spent time at UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre and Whitfield Clinic. The visit included a tour of the advanced radiation therapy centre and an overview of the multi-disciplinary approach to patient care.

“Even though everyone’s cancer journey is different, education and knowledge are key to taking the fear out of the unknown,” said Karen Fagan, UPMC Clinical Nurse Manager, who told the group about the UPMC Whitfield’s approach to the patient experience. “When patients come to us for their course of treatment, they are cared for by a dedicated multi-disciplinary team. Meeting and dealing with the same people during this difficult time helps build rapport and can be a great source of comfort.”

The visiting delegation also had the opportunity to meet with Cheryl Brill, Senior Vice President, international clinical operations and quality at UPMC, who was on-site to share information about UPMC’s experience in China and the success of this patient approach around the world.

The in-practice Specialist Nurse Managers were in Ireland as part of a collaborative education programme devised by the Abraham Trust, which facilitates the exposure of nurses to specialised medicine at different centres of excellence.

Deirdre Chapman, Nurse Allocation Officer, Department of Nursing and Health Care at WIT spoke of the strong links and excellent relationship that exist between WIT, UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre and Whitfield Clinic. Research collaborations are ongoing with UPMC and Whitfield Clinic which provide valuable clinical placements for undergraduate nursing students and applied healthcare students.

The UPMC Whitfield Cancer Centre has been offering the most advanced radiation therapy to public and private patients from the southeast region for the past 10 years. As part of UPMC Hillman Cancer Center, the UPMC Whitfield leverages innovation and expertise from around the globe to deliver world-class care to patients close to their homes.

What Our Members Say

“Tom Murphy Car Sales Ltd has been a member of Waterford Chamber of Commerce for over 25 years.

It’s a membership that serves us well as we find it gives us a platform to interact with similar businesses and puts us in front of a wide audience.  Having staged a number of very successful Chamber events, both at our dealership on the Cork Road and at venues chosen by the Chamber, it really puts into perspective the value of networking and meeting with potential customers face to face.

We intend to continue the partnership between Waterford Chamber of Commerce and Tom Murphy Car Sales into the future, as the results speak for themselves and we see the value in being a member of Waterford Chamber.”
