At the National Level
The nation’s growing opioid epidemic is presenting challenges in workplaces both large and small. It is costing employers around $10 billion from absenteeism, according to the American Society of Addiction Medicine. A key Senate committee is moving ahead with The Opioid Crisis Response Act and hopes to bring a legislative package to the floor before the house breaks for Memorial Day. Highlights of the Act include that it will:
• Spur development of non-addictive painkillers and strategies to manage pain
• Clarify FDA authorities to encourage responsible behavior for handling prescriptions
• Provide support for states to improve Prescription Drug Monitoring Programs
At the State Level
In Kentucky an Opioid overdose bill (HB 428) recently passed the house. The bill would specifically apply to victims of heroin overdose in Kentucky’s largest population areas. It would detain victims resuscitated by first responders and require them to enter a hospital for stabilization and referral to treatment. The bill now goes to the Senate for consideration.
The Surgeon General has urged employers to stock opioid overdose antidote on worksites. But before taking such an action employers should have a workplace safety program in place and have legal guidance as laws vary from state to state regarding liability for administering antidotes.
