To coincide with the upcoming festive period, New View Consultants has released an updated version of its ‘morning after’ drink drive e-learning module for fleet drivers.
The ‘highly interactive’ module explains how long alcohol can stay in your system, the difficulties in relating units to time, and how alcohol can impact on a driver’s ability.
The module, which includes a simple quiz, only takes a few minutes to complete and has been designed to be accessible across a host of platforms including tablets and smartphones.
The module is integrated with New View Consultants’ advanced learning management system which automatically informs a fleet manager when one of their drivers has completed it.
Data published in December 2015 by the Government’s THINK! campaign revealed that in 2013 an estimated 740 reported drink drive collisions took place in the morning, and around 5,500 people fail breath tests between 6am and midday every year.
The THINK! research also found that 58% of the 800 drivers surveyed would have four or more drinks on a night out, and still sometimes take a risk by driving the following morning – with only a third (33%) aware they could still be over the limit.
Ian Edwards, research director, New View Consultants, said: “Responsible organisations are quite rightly worried about this issue and need something that is concise and simple to educate their drivers.
“Our module highlights just how easy it can be to still have alcohol in your system the next morning.”
The module is priced at £3 + VAT per driver ‘to encourage maximum take up over the Christmas period’.
