Published:  15 November, 2018

UK businesses have a legal responsibility of ensuring staff are not over the alcohol limit while at work, to support this, ARCO a leading UK health and safety expert, says it wants to encourage the use of breathalysers in the work place this festive season.

To tackle this, many UK businesses are being advised to adopt a drug/alcohol screening for employees this winter with an emphasis on those in safety-sensitive industries, including jobs that require the operation of industrial machinery or driving and logistics.

Arco says it can provide a range of breathalysers including the new Drager Alcotest models.
