Managers and supervisors should be trained to recognise the signs of problems with alcohol. They should know what to do if they suspect an employee has a problem or if they are approached by an employee who declares a problem.

Managing Alcohol Problems - Training for Line Managers

Alcohol dependency affects 1 in 20 workers and line managers are increasingly responsible for managing such problems, often with little training or support to guide them.

Our 2.5 hour on-site alcohol awareness training sessions for line managers provide participants with knowledge of how alcohol affects the body, alcohol related risks to performance and ill-health and signs of high risk drinking and dependency. The course provides line managers with the skills, confidence and knowledge they need to manage and support problem-drinking employees sensitively, effectively and in line with your alcohol policy. 

Training consists of a combination of interactive presentation, pairs' work, case studies and whole group discussion.

Participants receive a range of alcohol awareness materials and our Managers' Guide to Alcohol in the Workplace and we align our training with your workplace alcohol policy.
