ISO 14001

Psychomotor skills

Alcohol use impairs the user’s ability to perform tasks that require conscious effort, including movement, coordination, manipulation, and dexterity as well as automatic responses like grace, strength, and speed.

Cognitive skills

Alcohol affects the user’s ability to focus, remember, learn, and understand information. Users may not fully understand or remember proper safety protocols and instructions, creating a dangerous work environment.


Even with low doses of alcohol, users tend to underestimate impairment and risks. Alcohol users may take risks and make decisions they would not make while sober, endangering their safety and the safety of others.


Alcohol reduces risk aversion, increases impulsivity and aggressive behaviour among those prone to aggression, and reduces inhibitions as blood alcohol content increases.

With over 40 years of experience, we are industry pioneers and through our ongoing research we continue to be leaders in using applied science and technology to develop innovative solutions to address our community needs.
