Alcohol contributes to significant health, social and economic costs to workplaces.

The benefits of addressing alcohol-related harm include:

  • A safer workplace
  • Increased performance and productivity
  • Reduced absenteeism and presenteeism
  • Decreased turnover of staff
  • Improved morale
  • Improved health and wellbeing of employees

As part of VicHealth's Creating Healthy Workplaces project, LeeJenn Health Consultants, the National Centre for Education and Training on Addiction and South East Business Networks are working with the Victorian manufacturing industry to develop new and innovative approaches to reducing alcohol-related harm in the workplace. 

The findings from this research project will be released in early 2016.
