Latest News: Driving automatic disqualification now in force
The Road Traffic (Amendment) Bill 2017

The Road Traffic (Amendment) Bill 2017 on Friday 20th July passed all stages in the Dail with 75 TDs voting in favour and eight TDs voting against. Under the proposed legislation, drink driving offences committed at BAC levels between 50mg and 80mg will incur an automatic disqualification of 3 months instead of the current penalty of a €200 fine and 3 penalty points. This has major implications for employers and employees who undertake driving as part of their duties.

Drugs and Alcohol at Work - Managing Reasonable Suspicion
Under Section 13(1) b the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 all employees must ensure that they are not under the influence of an intoxicant to the extent that he or she is in such a state as to endanger his or her own safety, health or welfare at work or that of any other person.

Random Roadside Drug Testing
A commencement order on 13th April 2017 gave effect to the Road Traffic Act 2016. This legislation will make it illegal for motorists to drive while under the influence cannabis, cocaine or heroin. Tests may also be conducted for the presence of alcohol, benzodiazepines and other prescribed medication.

Employee Drug Testing
The European Workplace Drug Testing Organisation seeks to harmonise drug testing processes across Europe. This presentation will cover sample matrices, drug panels, screening and confirmation issues, medical reporting requirements and how conflicting legislation has created the situation we now have. The EWDTS efforts in the UK will be compared to current drug driving legislation and more importantly the new Psychoactive Substances Act.
