Exploring the Impact of Work and the Workplace on Alcohol and Drug Use

Created by

There is growing evidence of the role workplaces play in shaping alcohol and other drug (AOD)-related behaviours and how to intervene to prevent or minimise problems.

This presentation outlines patterns and prevalence of AOD use among workers; workplace factors that can facilitate or exacerbate AOD use; the role played by workplace cultures; and evidence-based strategies to ameliorate AOD problem. Attention will be paid to the social and emotional impact of COVID-19 on workers. Emphasis will be placed on effective and practical intervention options.
