Addressing the Opioid Crisis
ELECTRI International is taking a close look at the opioid crisis facing the construction industry. A 2017 study revealed that construction workers are among the most susceptible to opioid abuse, second only to food service industry employees. At a recent ELECTRI Council round table discussion, participants agreed safety is the top priority for the workforce, employers, and customers. Safety is the leading driver of concern over the opioid crisis.
ELECTRI’s White Paper provides links contractors can use to learn more about new laws and information from the CDC on ways to address the opioid crisis in the workplace.
