3. Developing an alcohol policy for the workplace

Depending on your role you might get involved in developing or updating an alcohol policy for your workplace.

Workplace alcohol policies can have or be part of a broader health promoting approach, rather than having a more punitive focus.  Taking a proactive approach to worker health and safety can have numerous benefits not only for the company but for New Zealand as a whole. Check out the tools below.
