Alcohol abuse at workplaces in Italy is likely underestimated, due to the fact that only few data are available. This phenomenon is difficult to describe because of the limited information and the lack of validated methods of data collection. On their basis we performed a survey, using the data collected by the Alcohol Unit of Internal Medicine of the Bari University, to assess the prevalence of alcohol-addiction in different economic activities, as cathegorized according to ATECO 91 classification. In the studied sample, the most numerous group was rapresented by unemployed (19.9%). Among workers, the building industry showed a prevalence data (7.7%) which is comparable to the result of the Public Administration (7.4%). This work suggests the need to set up a national surveillance system, based on validated methods for data collection, that would eventually result to an useful tool for those in charge of the prevention of alcoholrelated risk.

Abstract

Alcohol abuse at workplaces in Italy is likely underestimated, due to the fact that only few data are available. This phenomenon is difficult to describe because of the limited information and the lack of validated methods of data collection. On their basis we performed a survey, using the data collected by the Alcohol Unit of Internal Medicine of the Bari University, to assess the prevalence of alcohol-addiction in different economic activities, as cathegorized according to ATECO 91 classification. In the studied sample, the most numerous group was rapresented by unemployed (19.9%). Among workers, the building industry showed a prevalence data (7.7%) which is comparable to the result of the Public Administration (7.4%). This work suggests the need to set up a national surveillance system, based on validated methods for data collection, that would eventually result to an useful tool for those in charge of the prevention of alcoholrelated risk.
