If one of your drivers was found to be impaired by drugs and/or alcohol and you were asked to show evidence of how you manage driver fitness for work – would your systems stand up?
Operating a heavy vehicle requires a range of mental and physical attributes and drivers must be alert and responsive to changing conditions at any time. As a driver, being ‘fit-for-work’ encompasses a range of factors that can cause impairment such as drugs and/or alcohol, quality sleep, mental and physical health, alertness and concentration, medical conditions and lifestyle issues.
Transport Operators have a responsibility to have systems in place to manage driver fitness for work.
Drivers have a responsibility to be fit for work, including maintaining 0.00% blood alcohol content and be free from impairment by drugs, in accordance with State Road Laws.
