Waging a Counterattack on Opioids
in the Workplace and at Home
May 11 | 9:00 – 10:15 AM MDT

The opioid crisis is waging a war across the U.S. According to the National Safety Council, approximately 75% of workplaces are affected by this crisis. The number of Americans dying of overdoses grew dramatically during the pandemic. More than 105,000 Americans died of overdoses between October 2020 and October 2021, with 70% being the result of opioids.
According to the Health Institute, Colorado experienced a 38% increase in drug overdoses in 2020 vs. 2019. Construction workers and extended families are disproportionately at risk for soft tissue injuries at work and home (athletics/sports) and from orthopedic, dental, and general medical surgical procedures. Join us to learn how to protect your workforce and your family from opioids through practical and proven first-exposure prevention strategies.
