Yourwellness is passionate about giving back to the local communities in which we distribute the magazine and this partnership with Alcohol Health Promotion and the workforce will have an extremely positive effect on keeping people safe in Brighton
Sussex, UK (PRWEB UK) 16 March 2013
Yourwellness Magazine recently visited Alcohol Health Promotion and the Workforce in Brighton & Hove to find out how they operate, and how they support businesses in Brighton.
Yourwellness discovered that Alcohol Health Promotion and the Workforce supports employers and employees by providing free workshops raising awareness about alcohol. This service supports local businesses with policy development and supporting people into services as required.
The company car is an extension of the workplace, so Yourwellness posed the question; “How many of company vehicle drivers are over the limit on a Monday morning? Do the companies know? Or are they just hoping?”
Yourwellness asked the Step Aside Consultancy (http://www.thestepasideconsultancy.co.uk/4/-Drink-Driving-&-The-Morning-After.html) who specialise in the treatment of Alcohol and drug dependency and discovered that When 4% beers and ciders - average strength beers and ciders are two-hour pints. i.e. each pint takes at least two hours to leave your blood stream from when you stop drinking.
5.5% beers and ciders - stronger beers and ciders are three-hour pints.
3%-4% cans - are a two-hour drink.
5%-5.5% cans - are a two and a half-hour drink.
Super strength cans - can be a whopping 7.5% or even up to 9%.
A 7.5% can is a three and a half-hour drink.
A 9% can is a four-hour drink.
Drink five super-strength cans on a Sunday night and you should not drive for about 21 hours – so completely unfit for work on a Monday!
