Alcohol

A period of sobriety will clear your head

Every third Finnish employee belongs in the risk group regarding alcohol consumption. Are you one of them?

If your weekly alcohol use is not binge-drinking and does not pose risks on your health, your body is thankful. The weekly limit for moderate consumption is 24 units for men and at most 16 units for women.

Do you know how much you are drinking?

Alcohol use does not usually become a problem overnight, but during a long period of time. Therefore you should evaluate your own alcohol consumption from time to time, as well as risks related to it. As an aid for evaluating your drinking, you can use e.g. the AUDIT test developed by the World Health Organisation.

The groups in occupational health services and healthcare centres will provide you with support for reducing alcohol use.
