Minimise risks caused by driving under the influence of alcohol
In the workplace it is particularly important to systematically eliminate the risks posed by driving under the influence of alcohol. This increases the safety for employees, passengers and other road or workplace users.
The Dräger Interlock® prevents drivers under the influence of alcohol from starting their vehicle. If the Dräger Interlock® device detects an alcohol value above the pre-set limit, it prevents the engine from being started. Eliminating this risk will also safeguard the reputation of your company and potential liability costs.
With more emphasis on fleet and road safety, and increased awareness of the true cost of a fleet vehicle being involved in a road traffic accident, many fleet operators are taking a more proactive role to tackle drink driving by installing interlock devices. The interlock device protects the driver and gives the fleet operator peace of mind that their drivers are fit to be behind the wheel.
Driving under the influence of alcohol continues to be an issue in the UK and, despite campaigns to raise awareness of the dangers, incidents involving drink drivers show no signs of slowing. Evidence from countries, such as Sweden and the US, shows that mandatory installation of an interlock device for drink drive offenders can be more effective than other types of sanctions. Rather than revoking an offender’s driving licence, it focuses on changing behaviour and thereby reducing the incidents of drink driving
The Dräger Interlock® 7000 is an alcohol measuring instrument with vehicle immobilizer. After a breath alcohol measurement it prevents an drunk driver from starting the vehicle. The device helps to reduce alcohol-related accident risks. The Interlock 7000 follows a simple principle: Ready when you are. Swiftly ready for use, precise measurement results and reliable technology ensure this principle.
