||Worksite barriers to the effective management of alcohol problems

||A survey of 7,255 supervisors in 114 worksites across seven major U.S. corporations revealed three classes of barriers to workplace interventions in cases of alcohol abuse: organizational, interpersonal and individual barriers. Most managers reported encountering some barriers to interventions; the extent of perceived barriers was related to characteristics of the worksite, the job, and/or the environment. Barriers were greatest for female managers, managers in larger worksites, and first-line supervisors, and were related to the form of intervention (formal or informal). Corporate intervention strategies should take into account differences between company worksites and job levels.
