Opioids and Workplace Injuries

Learn how employers can identify and address the complex opioid issue in the workplace.

A recent report by the White House Council of Economic Advisors estimated that the cost of the opioid crisis to our country was over $500 billion. Much of that cost is born by employers and industry. Many employers and HR managers feel overwhelmed by the problem and don't understand the best ways to address this dilemma. It is more than just a nuisance as lives and families are being destroyed. This topic will break down the complex opioid issue into smaller, understandable and actionable matters that will improve the health and productivity of your organization.
