Event Details


Alcohol Concern recently merged with Alcohol Research UK to create a major independent national charity, working to reduce the harms caused by alcohol. We offer a wide range of training for those whose work brings them into contact with people drinking at potentially harmful levels.

Managing alcohol in the workplace



This one-day training package will give managers the skills and confidence to respond appropriately to alcohol-related harm in the workplace. It will equip them with effective evidence-based tools recommended by the Department of Health, NICE guidance and the World Health Organisation.


Who should sign up?

The course is appropriate for anyone who manages or supervises others as part of their role, including HR professionals and team leaders.


What will it cover?

The course will cover:

  • Understanding the risks that alcohol can pose in the workplace
  • Using and interpreting screening tools
  • Responding to intoxicated individuals
  • Appropriate actions to take in response to alcohol-related issues among staff
  • Consideration of whether incidents represent conduct or capacity issues


What will I learn?

You will:

  • Develop confidence in dealing effectively with any workplace issue that involves alcohol, including dependence and intoxication.
  • Practice skills for talking to staff about their drinking and helping them to reduce risk, as well as exploring treatment options for those who need further support.
  • Work with the trainer and other participants to discuss interpretation and implementation of your alcohol policy.
