Abstract A campaign for the reduction of alcohol consumption at work was carried out in a Madrid comapny in the food sector which employed 100 workers, mostly males. The alcohol consumption of the workers investigated and information concerning the negative effects of alcohol was transmitted to the workers. The duration of the campaign was 40 days and it resulted in a slight decrease of alcohol consumption among the participants and a significant increase of the knowledge concerning alcohol among them. This did not, however, increase the awareness of the risks associated with this consumption.
