Abstract

Although public health campaigns focussing on alcohol use in the workplace are gaining increased publicity little evidence on the use of screening in the workplace. In this studying 152 mining personnel completed an alcohol screening test (the AUDIT). 133 of those that completed the AUDIT consented to a breathalyser test. The study found substantial evidence of hazardous alcohol use amongst participants, especially among younger males.

Citation countsare sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.
