An overdose can happen to anyone. Throughout the pandemic, there has been a drastic increase in opioid overdose deaths. As a result, the Ontario government has made the availability of life-saving naloxone kits a priority.

INDUSTRY BUSINESS PARTNERS
It may come as a surprise that 30% of opioid-related deaths among people employed during the pandemic occurred among those working in the construction industry, and 1 in 7 occurred in alcohol settings such as bars, nightclubs, etc.
As a result, the Ontario Government has introduced new legislation, the “Working for Workers Act” that will require all workplaces that have a risk of worker opioid overdose to have naloxone kits on hand for better worker protection, or face significant fines.
We offer businesses training both virtually through zoom or on another platform, or in person for larger groups. Training generally takes less than 20 mins.
We encourage you to consider incorporating naloxone administration into your current Workplace Safety Training Program in order to ensure your workplace is well prepared in the unfortunate event of an opiate overdose at your business site.
