Alcohol, a depressant that reduces activity in the central nervous system, is the most commonly abused drug in the United States. It contributes to more accidents, illness and death than all other drugs combined. An alcohol intoxicated person exhibits loose muscle tone, loss of fine motor coordination and impaired judgment.
In the workplace, alcohol affects a person’s production and causes them to miss more work days. A person under the influence puts themselves and others at risk for injury. In addition, alcohol abusers file more workmen’s compensation claims than substance-free employees. Studies have shown that employees impaired by alcohol are responsible for an estimated 45 percent of all workplace injuries.
