With construction workers facing high rates of injuries, pain management needs, and mental health assistance, the impact of opioid misuse is a serious concern.

NECA has joined forces with the Alliance for Naloxone Safety in the Workplace (ANSW) to offer vital fentanyl overdose reversal training for job sites, aiding in the fight against the opioid crisis.

Implementing a Naloxone Training policy is essential in tackling this issue. Naloxone, capable of reversing opioid overdoses, can save lives in critical situations. By offering Naloxone training and supplying worksites with this medication, companies can significantly contribute to protecting their employees’ well-being and addressing the challenges of opioid overdoses in the construction sector.

ANSW empowers employers with essential knowledge, policies, and training to successfully implement Naloxone programs within their businesses.
