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
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.
