||Data from the 1988 US National Health Interview Survey were analyzed for a sample of 29,192 adults who were employed at some time during the previous year. After adjusting for the effects of age, sex, education, occupation and strenuous job activity, the odds ratio of occupational injury increased with frequency of heavy drinking. Odds ratios were slightly decreased by the inclusion of smoking as a control variable. Odds ratios were also slightly lower when the analysis was restricted to current drinkers, suggesting that the risk of work injury was increased by light or moderate as well as heavy drinking.
