Alcohol in the workplace

Just like any other drug, the use of alcohol in the workplace can impact in a number of ways, including safety, productivity and worker relationships.

Coming to work hungover.

If you go to work with a hangover, this can be as bad a going to work intoxicated. In fact, without realising it some individuals can still be intoxicated from the night before.

Tiredness, headaches, reduced concentration are just a few symptoms that can occur from a hangover, all of these can lead to safety concerns in the workplace. There are no remedies for a hangover, despite there being many claims out there. Simply our bodies take time to recover, even the healthiest person can only process one standard drink per hour.
