Workplace Alcohol and Other Drug (AOD) Factsheets

To assist workplaces respond to alcohol and other drug related harm in the workplace, NCETA produced a series of factsheets about commonly used drugs and their impact on safety and well-being of individual employees, and overall safety and productivity of the workplace. Although the factsheets may be used as part of an education strategy to raise workers' awareness of the potentially negative impact of AOD on workplace safety and productivity and on thier own health, the data about harms and the recommended levels of drinking contained in them has now been updated. 

Updated Information

Current data about alcohol-related harms in the workplace is available on the National Alcohol and Drug Knowledgebase (NADK) website.
