Abstract The consumption of alcohol and drugs is widespread in society in general, including among workers. The implications of the consumption of these substances in the working environment are very important, giving rise to diseases, occupational accidents, absenteeism, occupational disabilities and reduced productivity. Various measures are necessary in occupational settings to prevent and to minimize the risks resulting from the consumption of these substances. These should include prevention and support programmes offering basic information and medical assistance to affected workers.
