Drugs and Alcohol in the workplace

This infographic from SHPOnline shows just how much alcohol and drug abuse has had a huge impact on the United Kingdom’s economy, with it costing the UK £36bn in total each year. Seventy percent of these substance abusers are in full time employment, and seventeen million working days are lost to alcohol misuse alone.

Impact of Alcohol Addiction in the workplace

Even more shocking is the bigger impact that drinking can have someone’s workplace. One in four workers have admitted to making a mistake at work as a result of a hangover. Of course we all know that mistakes at work can be fatal in some high risk working environments.
