About This Course:
As a result of the ongoing opioid overdose epidemic, unintentional poisonings are now the number-one cause of accidental death in the United States, surpassing motor vehicle accidents. This is particularly concerning, especially for organizations operating in high safety-risk industries, which must continuously balance safety, productivity, employee health and well-being, drug use and testing policies, compliance with the Americans with Disabilities Act, state worker’s compensation laws, and more.

Join us for an all-new webinar led by experts at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention’s (CDC) National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) who will provide an overview of how the epidemic is impacting workplaces and practical insights into what employers can do to help combat the opioid overdose epidemic’s potentially devastating impact on the workplace. The panel includes an employment and safety lawyer who will address the OSHA and employment law aspects of the issue.What You'll Learn:
  • The makeup of the opioid overdose epidemic among the U.S. population/workforce and across occupation and industry groups
  • How work-related factors, such as injuries, pain, and stress, may contribute to opioid use and misuse
  • How to apply guidance for employers related to naloxone, fentanyl, and responding to a suspected opioids overdose
  • How to align post-incident drug testing policies with OSHA’s new rule to improve tracking of workplace injuries and illnesses
  • How opioid treatment may interface with legal medical marijuana use, and how the laws on worker protections for cannabis users are changing
  • How to recognize the impact that opioids have on worker productivity and safety, and when you have an obligation to take action under OSHA’s general duty clause
  • How to apply the ADA’s “reasonable accommodation” requirements, undue hardship analysis, and the “direct threat” to safety defense, as applied to workers with health issues that includes opioid treatment or other medications that can impact fitness-for-duty
  • And more!
