EWA: European Workplace and Alcohol
The European Workplace and Alcohol project (EWA) is a European project co-financed by the European Commission running from 2011 to 2013.
EWA is a public/private sector partnership with involvement of governmental and public sector organizations, public and private employers, non-governmental organizations, representatives of civil society, international networks representing global companies and employer and employee organizations, and trades unions.
The primary aim of EWA is to develop effective methods of engaging with workplaces, and their workforces, to raise awareness and bring about individual and organisational change that leads to safer alcohol consumption, and thus a reduction in alcohol-related absenteeism, presenteeism and injuries.
The project will involve implementing practices in twelve European countries (Belgium, Spain (Catalonia), Croatia, England, Finland, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Romania, and Scotland).
