It’s surprising how easy it is to hide something, even from a co-worker working right next to you. Impairment affects employee, driver, and workplace safety. Employees may drive to and from work and may drive as a part of their job. Drug and alcohol impairment represent a constant safety threat. They can hinder employee judgment and motor skills, frequently resulting in near misses, crashes, injuries, and property damage. According to SAMHSA, most people who misuse alcohol, prescription drugs, or illegal drugs are employed. In an upcoming 30-minute webinar, Our Driving Concern Senior Program Manager Lisa Robinson will discuss this topic.
Company-sponsored events can pose a potential liability for both the employee and the employer. Curtis Johnson, VP of Claims Operations with Texas Mutual Insurance Company, will share what employers should consider when planning formal and informal employer gatherings to reduce employers’ exposure to liability while keeping employers employees safe on the road this holiday season.
The occupational arena and impaired driving meet up in ways we wish they wouldn’t. Detective Mike Jennings of the Austin Police Department will share emerging trends and provide details that help all of us improve safety in our workplace, roadway, and anyplace.
