Safety: Drugs, alcohol and ground handling

14:15 - 14:45

This session will identify the requirements on aviation businesses to develop drug and alcohol policies, particularly where employees are operating heavy and potentially dangerous GSE. What should you include in your employee handbook and how do you enforce the rules? The session will investigate whether drug and alcohol testing is a necessity in the high-risk environment of the apron.
