Why Bring Secondhand Drinking Pocket Guides Into the Workplace?
People don’t set out to cause secondhand drinking or to cope with it in harmful ways. By sharing these pocket guides, companies, public agencies, hospitals, labor unions, colleges, nonprofits and similar groups share with their employees, students, members and constituents the key information that has long been missing to empower individuals to self-elect change, whether they are the person causing SHD or the one coping with it.
