Unfortunately, there are regular reports of people working in our industry being arrested for using drugs such as stimulants and marijuana. In the event of an accident caused by such drug abuse, the responsibility of the employing company may also be called into question. A recent study of the number of arrests of professional drivers for stimulant use in recent years found that, in FY2012, there were 43 cases involving limousine hire and taxi drivers, 167 cases involving truck drivers, and six cases involving bus drivers. These figures show that the problem of the use of controlled substances is becoming widespread throughout the entire transport industry.
For the development of further safety management systems, all employees are tested for controlled substances every year, based on the following principles.
1. Contribute to the sound development of the industry by spreading drug testing throughout the industry.
2. To achieve this, conduct testing every year to gain trust in the industry and the company.
Sakura Kotsu has a responsibility as part of public transportation, and as such has a major social responsibility. To ensure transport safety and to gain the ongoing trust of our customers through the complete elimination of operations under the influence of drugs, we will conduct management against the risk of operations by users of controlled substances.
