What is Drinkaware at Work?
Drinkaware at Work is a comprehensive alcohol training programme that will support health, safety and wellbeing agendas of UK businesses.
As an independent alcohol education charity, Drinkaware has over 13 years’ experience of working in partnership with others to help reduce alcohol-related harm.
One of our core values is that we are led by evidence and facts. Every year we commission a UK representative survey to find out who is drinking, how much and why. We have used the information from these surveys to create our accredited Drinkaware at Work programme.
Drinkaware at Work was originally developed following requests from organisations who wanted to support their staff with alcohol awareness training but were struggling to find a course that met their requirements. So, in 2018 we launched Drinkaware at Work and continue to develop, adapt, and improve our training based on feedback from clients. We believe we now provide the best alcohol awareness training programme available and are very proud of our Drinkaware at Work course which encourages employees to think about alcohol alongside the other health information they receive.
There is a range of training to suit the needs of different organisations including:
The courses include key topics that have proven to be the most interesting and informative for participants. Amongst these topics is an explanation of what a unit of alcohol is, information about the UK Chief Medical Officers’ low-risk drinking guidelines, a look at the impact that alcohol has on the body and mind, the definition of binge drinking, how long the body takes to process alcohol and the importance of alcohol awareness in the workplace.
Drinkaware at Work is suitable for all employees. The courses have not been developed for drinkers who are dependent on alcohol (although we do offer information suitable for anyone in this situation) but, are designed to offer interesting and informative content for everyone, including non-drinkers.
Data privacy is of paramount importance and all personal data entered by participants in the Drinkaware at Work programme is protected by Drinkaware’s full privacy notice which is available to all our customers.
Improving the wellbeing of staff, enhancing the safety of your workforce, increasing productivity are just some of the benefits of improving your team's alcohol awareness. Find out how Drinkaware at Work can help your team.
