Drug and alcohol management

The Bus Safety Act introduced new obligations relating to drug and alcohol management for bus operators.

If you are an accredited or registered bus operator, you must:

  • Develop a written drug and alcohol management policy for your bus operations
  • Consult with your bus safety workers (employees and contractors) when developing the policy
  • Implement and maintain the policy to ensure it is appropriate and up to date.

Bus safety workers should speak to their managers if they have any queries about the policy, or if they are impaired by alcohol and/or drugs.
