||French legislation regarding alcohol is often not well known by doctors. It includes legislative texts developed at various times and whose objectives range from the care of the sick to the protection of public order. Legislation of a particularly medical nature is addressed in this article along with provisions concerning driving and the prevention of alcohol consumption at work. Two texts in particular are examined: the law of 6 March 1917 (in Jan. 1980, recourse to an alcohol test in the absence of an industrial physician was limited to workers whose execution of tasks or operation of certain machines could seriously compromise the health and safety of the enterprise) and the decree of 5 Oct. 1960 which requires employers to make fresh drinking water available to workers and which specifies the role of the medical service and the social partners of the enterprise in the prevention of risks associated with the consumption of alcohol.
