Employee Health: Opioids, Alcohol, Mental Stress and Physical Injury
Presenter: David Whitlock, Whitlock Law
Date/Time: Friday, July 26 from 9:30a to 10:00a
Let’s have a frank discussion about what is possibly the most significant threat to your business: your employees’ health and well-being.
This is a dangerous industry, with the leading number of on-the-job injuries, so physical injury is bound to happen. What happens next can lead to major problems. Why? The injured worker will have the physical injury to deal with, plus the mental stress of being out of work. Many will turn to alcohol and opioid use as – at first – pain relief, but later, daily use to “get through the day.” And this problem extends to the worker’s family members, also. There are some tools and guidance which we will explore. The bottom line is that we all need to be more involved.
