Addressing Opioids-1139396500 600x400With the holiday season upon us, it’s a good time to review how your organization is handling opioids and substance abuse. Stressful situations, like the holidays, present special challenges for those battling addiction. Understanding opioids and substance abuse is the first step in improving your employees’ safety and your bottom line.

The National Safety Council (NSC) offers a toolkit with sample policies, fact sheets, presentations, safety talks, posters, white papers, videos, that will help contractors implement a workplace program on opioids and substance abuse disorders. According to the NSC, “employers will be more successful in reducing opioid-related issues if employees actively support a policy.”
