The latest addition to CPWR’s resources for responding to opioids in construction is an updated training program, intended for use by experienced instructors, to increase awareness of opioids and decrease the stigma associated with opioid use.
Construction has been hit particularly hard by opioids — state-level studies have found that construction workers are six to seven times more likely to die of an opioid overdose than workers in other professions. CPWR is playing a leading role in helping our industry respond through a wide range of resources.
The training program below was updated in the fall of 2021. A second module will be added later. We welcome your feedback on how to make it even more effective.
