Alcohol and other drugs can have a big impact at work, and at events and venues.

Employers have a responsibility to keep their staff safe from the risks that impairment brings. Likewise event organisers, venue owners and managers need to be responsible hosts. Employees, event-goers and punters need accurate info and services to help them stay safer at work and at play.
