As Christmas approaches, many logistics companies across Ireland are starting to think about drug and alcohol testing programmes.
For firms offering transport, haulage and other distribution services, Christmas 2021 promises to be a particularly busy one. Coupled with increases in binge drinking across Ireland and the social pressures of the festive period, now is the time for logistics companies to put in place a robust drug and alcohol testing policy.
Why should I invest in drug and alcohol testing for logistics?
Drug and alcohol misuse can lead to staffing issues for your business, particularly during the busiest time of the year. Even worse, it could lead to legal action in the event of an accident or incident.
Comprehensive drug and alcohol testing is a crucial part of any logistics firm’s health and safety policy. Not only for vehicle drivers, but also for warehouse workers, machine operators and even office-based staff.
When you implement a drug and alcohol testing programme, you can increase productivity and reduce the likelihood of accidents and incidents.
