Alcohol and Work Injuries: A Bad Combo

Drinking to excess is a huge health risk. It stands to reason that generally, people who have less to do drink more often. A recent study analyzed data from 61 studies in 14 countries and had some surprising findings. In fact, people who work more than 48 hours per week are 13 percent more likely to engage in risky drinking than people who work 35 to 40 hours per week.

About 40 percent of Americans who work full-time work more than 50 hours a week, so there may be a major drinking problem directly affecting those who we wouldnt generally consider at risk. The researchers are based in Finland, which has a different standard of risky drinkingalmost twice the American standard. In Europe, risky drinking is considered more than 14 drinks per week for women and 21 drinks for men. In the United States, risky drinking is considered anything more than 7 drinks per week for women and more than 14 drinks per week for men.

Excess Drinking Linked to Work Injury

Drinking to unwind after a long day of work creates a vicious cycle of binge drinking to forget long work days and long work days to make up for and pay for binge drinking. The solution seems to be to not overwork oneself but there are jobs that require socialization outside of the workplace where drinking is, if not required, then strongly encouraged. Depression and sleep problems may also play their roles in excess drinking, both of which are symptoms of overwork.

Excess drinking can result in poorer work and has been linked to work injury. In Denver, a workers comp lawyer or Denver disability lawyer can help with work injuries but ideally, workers remain healthy in the first place. High-stress jobs exist wherever there are people willing to work harder to improve their lots in life. Denver workers compensation attorneys work hard to help clients who are injured on the job regardless of the circumstances. The best way to stay healthy is, of course, to find healthy outlets for stress and not overwork oneself in the first place. Awareness of the issue at least is a step toward remedying it.
