||Alcohol-related absenteeism: The need to analyse consumption patterns in order to target screening and interventions in the workplace
||July 2009, Vol.47, No.4, p.345-347. 20 ref.
||The impact of alcohol, tobacco and drugs in the workplace is reflected in two to three times higher rates of absenteeism, three times higher compensation claims and a quarter of all occupational accidents. This editorial argues in favour of screening employees for their alcohol consumption during their regular annual medical examinations, and providing suitable preventive interventions and treatment.
