A free webinar is being held to advise fleets on tackling drug driving among their employees.
The event is being organised by road safety charity Brake's Global Fleet Champions campaign.
Topics to be covered include the risk that drug driving can pose to organisations, how different drugs affect driving, the role of testing in the workplace, and policies and procedures that can help.
Speakers will include Road Safety Smart's Andrew Drewary, and Freight Link Europe partner Lesley O'Brien.
Places can be booked via the Global Fleet Champions website.
Brake head of programme delivery Scott Williams said: "Drivers who are impaired by drugs, whether illegal or prescription, are never fit to be in control of a vehicle.
"Any drug-driver presents a serious risk to your fleet's safety and reputation, and is a danger to other road users.
"Robust drug policies and procedures are vital for ensuring all your employees are safe to be behind the wheel."
