Use this simple step to prevent any alcohol-related accidents among your drivers…
In order to prevent any alcohol-related accidents among your drivers, you need to implement a breathalyser-test system for all your drivers. In other words, all your drivers must pass a breathalyser test before starting work every day. You may even implement it before each driver finishes their shift.
What this will do is ensure that your drivers are fit to drive your vehicles.
