    Workshop: Opioids and the Workplace

    UAW Region 9A

    256 W. 38th Street 12th Floor

    New York, NY

    From 1999-2016, more than 350,000 people died from an overdose involving

    prescription and illegal opioids. On average, 115 Americans die every day from an

    opioid overdose. Overdoses involving opioids killed about 48,000 people in 2017.

    Approximately 40% of those deaths were from prescription opioids.

    This national opioid epidemic is impacting communities and worksites throughout

    the country. In this workshop participants will learn facts about the crisis, the impact

    of prescription and illegal opioids, the connection between hazardous jobs, workplace

    injury, and opioid misuse, overdose, and addic tion, jobs that may have occupational

    exposure, worker protection guidelines, and non-punitive strategies for helping

    addicted workers.
