Why Do I Need Opioid Awareness Safety Training?
Opioid addiction is on the rise in the United States. Those who are addicted to opioids risk injuring themselves and others, and often don’t receive the aid that they need. Learning how to recognize the signs of opioid addiction in yourself and others can allow people to address the issue quickly and effectively in order to make a safer living environment.
Because of this requirement, employers have a legal and ethical obligation to develop and maintain a workplace that is free from hazards associated with drugs and alcohol. Employees have the right to work in an atmosphere that promotes the safety and well-being of all.

Frequently Asked Questions
What problems are associated with the use of opioids?
Opioid use has a number of side effects, such as dizziness, nausea, vomiting, constipation, and even respiratory problems. Regular use of opioids can also lead to a physical dependence and addiction with severe withdrawal symptoms. Many users are able to seek help and begin the long road to recovery, but many others are at a high risk of drug overdose before they get to that point.
Should I tell my employer if I have a drug problem?
The first step in addiction recovery is admitting you have a problem; if you want to begin recovery from substance abuse, then tell your employer so they can help you with that process. It is the employer’s responsibility to create a safe and hazard-free work environment for all of their employees; they cannot fulfill that responsibility if they are not aware of their employee’s individual needs.
Why is opioid prevention important?
To put it simply, opioid abuse ruins lives. Users may experience a brief sense of euphoria or relief from pain, but more likely than not, the cost is their life. Thus, the whole point of opioid prevention is to save lives and create safe communities and workplaces.
