||Is your workplace addictive?
||Jan. 1994, Vol.12, No.1, p.14-17. 19 ref.
||The problems of addictive behaviour and their manifestation and management in the workplace are reviewed. While addictions to alcohol, drugs, smoking and gambling are frequently encountered, other addictions, such as "workaholism", are less well known. Alcohol misuse results in considerable costs to industry in terms of working days lost, while smoking has a wide range of direct and indirect consequences for the health of employees. The development of addictive behaviour is discussed along with the management of addictions and profiling of potential addicts.
