Webinar: Prescription Drugs And The Mobile Workforce – How Can We Assess And Manage The Risk?

The effects of illicit drugs on driving performance is well known and is the focus of many workplace drug tests. However, the effects of prescription drugs is often overlooked, despite potentially having similar risk profiles.
