This session focuses on the cultural realities around the use of alcohol in the workplace.  of The reality is that we have a culture of ‘substance abuse’ whether alcohol or other inhalants.  Many persons drink before work etc.  With the new breathalyzer testing more businesses are exposed by employees who may continue with such practices.  Whether testing daily before work needs to be considered, Employee Assistance Programmes implemented or otherwise, this needs to be a conversation for us as practitioners.  This can potentially be linked as well to the seemingly rising mental health issues and suicide rates.  We can explore how programmes act as a form of mitigation and can even explore how insurance premiums might be affected based on some these factors.
