The increasing problem of drug driving at work

Broadcast Wednesday 2nd June 2021
Presented in association with:

Speakers: Ean Lewin and Andrew Drewary

Despite the misconception that drug misuse in the workplace is not a common occurrence, recent Police drug-drive statistics have shown that many forces are now catching 2 to 3 times more drug-drivers than drink-drivers and a significant number of these arrests are those who drive for work.

Employers have a legal, moral, and social responsibility to ensure their drivers remain drug and alcohol-free at the wheel. However, managing drug and alcohol (D&A) use in the workplace can be perceived as a complex, un-manageable and often an uncomfortable problem.

Ean Lewin is the Managing Director of D.tec International which he founded in 1996. Since, Ean has been fundamental in the creation of the new Road Traffic Act Section 5a ‘above the limit on drugs’, he worked in support of police officers highlighting their struggle to enforce the Road Traffic Act Section 4 ‘impairment’.

Ean is a technical expert on drugs of abuse and has vast experience in the practical and legal implications of implementing and running drug detection systems.

Andrew Drewary is an award-winning road safety specialist and collision/incident investigator and analyst, and a regular speaker at fleet, logistics and road safety conferences.

He has managed the investigation and analysis process for more than 37,000 road traffic collisions and logistics incidents over the last 17 years. He has used the information from these collisions to provide bespoke, innovative, and interactive road safety solutions to fleet operators.
