As employers we can have a real impact on the health and wellbeing of our staff. It has been identified that problem drinking can have a range of impacts in the workplace including poor decision making, errors in judgement, increased absent rates and accidents / injuries.
There are many measures employers can take to support staff to make healthier lifestyle choices with relation to alcohol these include introducing a policy, holding health awareness activities for staff and providing training for managers.
