The report summarises the most recent scientific evidence on the linkages between harmful drinking and productivity or employment, and on the workplace as a locus for addressing harm from alcohol. The report also looks at concrete workplace interventions.
The opportunities for action identified in the report extend to parties beyond the Alcohol and Health Forum, including to European businesses and organisations representing their employees, for whom it is hoped the report can serve as a resource for further work.
