Workplace injury and alcohol use in a major state rail organisation
Davey, Jeremy, Zinkiewicz, Lucy, & Obst, Patricia (1999) Workplace injury and alcohol use in a major state rail organisation. In McClure, Roderick (Ed.) Third National Conference on Injury Prevention and Control, 9-12 May, Brisbane, Australia.
Within the railway industry, alcohol misuse has the potential to affect productivity and also to endanger the lives of the public and employees. This paper will outline the findings of a survey of 4979 railway employees and their use of alcohol and perceptions of alcohol as a problem in the workplace. Of the sample, 13% reported having seen an alcohol related accident and 84% felt that alcohol affected the railway workplace. Issues associated with workplace problem drinking will be discussed along with employee opinions on how to address this major workplace health and safety issue.
