||Between 1988 and 1992 a careful examination was accomplished by a transport company in Spain in order to determine absenteeism and industrial accident rate on 43 possible excessive alcohol drinkers. Their age was 46 (average) and they had 23 years of service. A comparative study of the results obtained from check-ups on the 478 employees that belonged to the staff was carried out. The possible excessive alcohol consumers were tested by means of anamnesis, a drink questionnaire, physical exploration and blood test results. By analyzing the results of the study, a higher level of absenteeism and industrial accidents in possible heavy drinkers is perceived.
