Marijuana and Opioids in the Safety Culture

People suffering from physical or mental pain often turn to legal drugs and substances that when used in proper doses can provide temporary relief. However, many pain relievers have diminishing returns the longer people use them. Some also have highly addictive properties. Marijuana and opioids are controversial for this very reason, that in some people they are highly addictive and damaging to themselves and others. In the workplace, people using these legal pain relievers could unintentionally put everyone at higher risk for injury incidents, especially when their use is abused. How can we help our colleagues who might be addicted?

During this general awareness webinar, we’ll discuss the legal use and benefits of marijuana and opiates, as well as the dangers and health concerns, including:

  • Workplace injury hazards
  • Dangerous side effects
  • Addiction signs and symptoms
  • How to help colleagues in a positive safety culture
  • Addiction help and treatment resources
