||Drinking social norms and drinking behaviours: A multilevel analysis of 137 workgroups in 16 worksites
||Sep. 2007, Vol.64, No.9, p.602-608. 33 ref.
||The objective of this study was to examine the relationship between drinking social norms and heavy drinking, frequent drinking and drinking at work. The sample included 5338 workers with complete data, spread between 137 workgroups from 16 American worksites. Multivariate adjusted models showed participants working in workgroups in the most discouraging drinking norms quartile were 45% less likely to be heavy drinkers, 54% less likely to be frequent drinkers and 69% less likely to drink at work than their counterparts in the least discouraging quartile. These findings suggest that public health efforts at reducing drinking and alcohol-related injuries and diseases should target interventions at worksites.
