If you were drinking the night before, keep in mind that even though you had a few hours sleep, the alcohol in your system may not be completely gone. One 12-ounce can of beer contains .02 percent of alcohol; most states consider .08 percent to be over the acceptable limit. Your body can process .02 percent per hour. Do the math: If you were out until 4 o’clock in the morning and your shift starts at 8 o’clock and you had eight beers and four shots of tequila, you will still be considered over the limit at the beginning of your shift. We are not even factoring in the tremendous hangover with which you will be dealing.
