Information and Data Sheet 2: Workers' alcohol use and absenteeism

Ann Roche, Ken Pidd

    Research output: Other contribution


    There is a large body of international research literature concerning alcohol and the workplace. Much of it concerns the prevalence of use in the workforce, or workplace and other factors contribute to use. Comparatively little has focused on the effects that workers’ drinking have on the workplace.

    One of the key research findings to emerge to-date concerning the effects of workers’ drinking shows a consistent relationship between alcohol consumption and absenteeism. Until now, very little has been known about the precise nature of the relationship between workers’ consumption patterns and absenteeism. In particular, very little was known about the profiles of risky drinkers themselves.
