Misuse of alcohol and drugs are an occupational hazard. It can lead to poor health, increased absenteeism, lower productivity, a higher risk of injury and increase the likelihood of accidents and injury.

Statistics show that alcohol misuse is the most significant risk factor for death, ill-health and disability among 15-49-year-olds in the UK. Each year in the UK, drugs cost society £10.7 billion in policing, healthcare and crime.
