Drugs and Alcohol at Work - Employer's Legal Obligations

EAP Institute DrivingForWork2018

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.

The EAP Institute is announcing a seminar "Drugs and Alcohol at Work - Employer's Legal Obligations" in the Aspect Hotel, Kilkenny on Thursday, 24th May 2018. Speakers will include Maurice Quinlan Director of the EAP Institute, Pat Ward MBA Corporate Services Manger, Dublin Port Company and Duncan Carmichael, Sales Manager Agriyork400 Ltd.
