Alcohol locks - STBU

Alcohol locks

According to some sources, alcoholism affects around 700,000 to 900,000 people in Poland. However, the number of Poles who abuse alcohol may be much higher, reaching up to 2 million. This social problem also affects daily work. And the consequences of alcohol abuse in certain positions can be enormous, especially when it comes to driving vehicles. Alcohol locks could be a solution.

Alcoholism – a social problem

In a recent survey by LiveCareer.pl, nearly 400 out of 1,400 surveyed employees confirmed drinking alcohol while performing their duties.

Drinking at work or coming to work under the influence of alcohol is a real problem in many companies. A problem that not only affects the quality and efficiency of work, But, above all, impacts the safety of the employee and those around him.

Alcohol appears among various occupational groups, including corporate employees, machine operators, and drivers. The latter group is particularly concerning as it not only endangers themselves but also other road users.

Unfortunately, previous tools aimed at eliminating such risks have been ineffective.

A possible solution to this problem could be an amendment to the Labor Code introducing the possibility of testing employees’ sobriety by the employer.

This means that as of February 21, 2023, the employer may independently conduct preventive sobriety checks, even if the employee shows no signs of being under the influence of alcohol.
