CPD Gambling Awareness Training

Accredited CPD training in gambling awareness for your organisation.

Gambling and the workplace — a growing problem

Problem gambling not only harms individuals and families, but also has a significant impact on employers, businesses, and other work organisations.

According to Public Health England, problem gambling costs the UK economy an estimated 1.27 billion a year, and is linked to:

  • Poor concentration on work
  • Poor work performance
  • Sleep deprivation
  • Increased lateness and absence
  • Negative impacts on employers and work colleagues

Additional impacts on workplaces can include mental health issues, misuse of company property, reduced health and wellbeing, and relationship breakdowns.

Public Health England also estimate that 15% of online gamblers are gambling in the workplace, leading to a direct loss of productivity.

Gambling in the workplace is on the increase, and there’s a pressing need for more education on gambling harms, and how those harms have an impact on employees and employers.

What our clients say

Tony and his team hosted a seminar and their CPD gambling awareness training course on the Amey SRM A533 Bridge Replacement, to the project team on Friday 11th November 2022.

The seminar was enlightening, highly educational and informative, making us far more aware of the web of gambling options in the arena. It helped us to understand the environment better, providing us with tools as to how to identify, provide help and guidance to friends, family and colleagues.

I promoted Red Card's time with us as a measure of well-being but also recognising the difficult environment post-Covid 19 we are now enduring.

I would recommend this session to one and all, someone out there amongst us, or you know who needs help.

Thank you, Tony and your team from Red Card Gambling Support.

Gambling and the construction industry

Gambling affects workers in every sector, and the construction industry is no exception. In fact, as Swedish researchers found, construction workers are particularly vulnerable to problem gambling. According to the ERSA (Employment Related Services Agengy), 8% of people in the UK construction industry know someone who has been fired due to gambling.

Education is the first step towards tackling this industry-wide problem. Red Card deliver impactful CPD sessions to construction industry companies, using lived-experience presenters to discuss openly gambling harms and sources of help.
