Scottish policy note

The alcohol policy framework; ‘Changing Scotland's Relationship with Alcohol: A Framework for Action’ (2009) outlined continuing work with partners to develop and promote workplace alcohol policies, noting that the workplace can be a key point of connection with individuals in the promotion of a healthier relationship with alcohol. The Scottish Government and Alcohol Industry Partnership and the Scottish Centre for Healthy Working Lives have already led to the development of a model workplace alcohol policy that organisations can adapt for their own use (www.infoscotland.com/alcohol). They also commit to now taking this to the next level by seeking to apply more proactive management-led workplace programmes on tackling alcohol misuse, starting from within Scottish Government, with a view to rolling out action across the public sector and encouraging similar action in the private sector
