Background and Objectives: Alcohol consumption among various occupations' staff leads to many problems. Therefore, due to the importance of the issue, this comprehensive study was conducted to determine the prevalence of alcohol consumption among industrial workers.
Methods: In this descriptive cross-sectional study, the data were collected using a structured questionnaire through interview based on the workers’ self-reports. The participants included 13,128 workers across the country selected by multi-stage cluster sampling according to the population of labor workers and industrial centers in each province. The data were reported according to the consumption prevalence in the 10 spatial planning zones.
Results: In the optimistic situation, wokers in Ardebil (10.7%), Kermanshah (10.6%) and Guilan (7.1%) reported the highest frequency of alcohol consumption. The country’s mean prevalence of current consumption was 3.2% and the prevalence of alcohol consumption in life was up to 12.4% in the workers.
Conclusion: The data are based on the self-report of the participants. Therefore, the estimated prevalence rate is considered optimistic and below the actual prevalence. In the work environments of the country, especially in provinces with the highest frequency, special policies and interventions are needed to reduce the prevalence of alcohol consumption and minimize the harms caused by it.
