'Shocking' alcohol awareness results
In a recent survey carried out in a meeting of business people in Shrewsbury, 94% were unaware of how to work out the number of units in an alcoholic drink.
This is one of the topics taught to business drivers in TCC Automotive’s drink and drug awareness workshops. The calculation involves multiplying the volume by strength and dividing it by 1000 to realise the number of units in a drink.
Jo Baugh, director of TTC Automotive, said: “It is important to know the amount of alcohol in a drink in order to be aware of the limits for your health and the dangers of excessive consumption.
“We conducted the survey to examine how much people know about alcohol and units and the results were quite shocking. Only a small minority of those canvassed knew how to work out units of alcohol in a given bottle with 94% totally unaware.”
