Employees should be tested at work see whether they have an alcohol problem, according to the Alcohol Health Network
We asked users of ITV News' Facebook page what they thought of this proposal.
Don Shenker, director and founder of the Alcohol Health Network, said offering workers confidential tests for alcohol could "help prevent problems later".
A standardised test for alcohol misuse should be introduced for people at work, a leading medical journal has said.
Employees should take a test which identifies whether or not they are "risky" drinkers, according to an article on bmj.com.
If a problem drinker was identified, employers could help tackle alcohol misuse by providing advice and "prevent alcohol-related harm and sickness costs", Don Shenker, director and founder of the Alcohol Health Network, wrote.
