Healthy Workers Alcohol Program

Share this page

Alcohol can play a large role in the culture of many workplaces, from social functions and events, to lunches and outings celebrating team and individual employee success, regular social gatherings between employees, and as a means of managing work-related issues including stress.

Whether workplace safety, productivity, or employee health and wellbeing forms part of your workplace's rationale for responding to alcohol-related harm, a safe workplace culture around alcohol provides a number of benefits:

  • a safer working environment with decreased risk of accidents, injuries and fatalities
  • compliance with occupational health and safety¬†related legislation
  • increased employee performance and productivity
  • reduced absenteeism
  • decreased staff turnover and early retirement
  • reduced operating, reputational and indirect costs
  • improved work relations and staff morale
  • improved health and wellbeing of employees

The Healthy Workers Alcohol Program, coordinated by the Drug and Alcohol Office, provides free information, resources and specialist workplace support, and advice on alcohol-related harm and issues in the workplace.
