Toolbox Talk 5: Avoid drink problems (PDF + 3 days trial video)
Toolbox Talks are a new product from the Men's Health Forum that aim to put the health back into health and safety.
PDFs that you can print out and use in a variety of ways, Toolbox Talks are an easy way to get over key health messages in a short accessible manner. Originally developed for employers and team leaders, anyone can use them with any group of men to provide a fun and informative event lasting 15-50 minutes that will help all participants live and work more healthily.
This particular talk looks at alcohol, its effects, how to cut down and what to do if you're concerned about your drinking.
There are two sheets. The first contains a quiz, cartoon, photos and discussion points that will provide stimulus for any trainer regardless of their level of experience. Sheet two provides all the 'answers' – a copy can be given to all participants or just used by the trainer to bring the session together around the key learning points.
New updated version including CMO's revised alcohol guidelines for men, 2016.
