West Australian workplaces are well placed to respond to and create supportive and healthy workplace environments and a safe workplace culture aimed at preventing and managing alcohol-related harm.
To achieve this, good practice workplace responses that form part of a "whole of workplace" safety and health approach are required. A fitness for work alcohol policy, tailored to suit the individual needs and resources of each workplace, forms the foundation of an organisation's culture around alcohol and it's responses to alcohol-related harm in the workplace1.
The How to develop an alcohol policy, interactive guide for workplaces, aims to provide workplaces with a 'best practice' framework to inform the design, development, implementation and evaluation of a fitness for work alcohol policy.
