Information sheet for employers and employees on requirements under Health and Safety Legislation.

From time to time both employers and employees ask questions of the Health and Safety Authority (HSA) about intoxicants at work and specifically the duties that arise for the employer and for the employee. The HSA can answer only those questions that arise under our legislation – i.e. The Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005, which we will call “The Act”.

So, what follows below, in a “Frequently Asked Questions” format, attempts to provide responses which we hope will serve the purpose of guiding you on intoxicants in relation to health and safety at work. Depending on the structure and size of your company, you may be able to get assistance from whoever is accountable for human resource management or owner / manager or trade union in regard to other aspects of managing intoxicants at work.
