Drink and drug driving in the workplace

Alcohol and drug issues are a serious health and safety risk, particularly for employees who are driving on the road. As of 1 April 2021, the blood-alcohol limit is zero for drivers of heavy vehicles greater than 4.5 tonne (GVM).

We’ve worked closely with industry health and safety experts and the Alcohol and Drug Foundation to develop a toolkit to help businesses manage the risks of alcohol and other drugs (AOD) in the workplace. 

Your free toolkit includes:

  • An online policy builder – answer a few questions about your workplace and a tailored, comprehensive policy is generated
  • An employer’s guide – contains information to support businesses to successfully implement and manage the policy
  • Online education for employees - to help employees understand their obligations to the policy and the impacts of alcohol and other drugs in the workplace.
  • Resources - to help you identify and manage alcohol and drug problems in the workplace.
