Effective June 1, 2023, there is new legislation under the Occupational Health and Safety Act that requires employers with a known risk for a worker to experience an opioid-related harm in the workplace to have a naloxone kit. Not every workplace is required to have naloxone kits and trained individuals. This free safety connection will provide insight and understanding into the legislation so you are better equipped to make decisions around this requirement. The session will cover when a kit is required, what needs to be in the kit, where to store the kit, training, and other considerations. WSPS will share an assessment tool and work through some scenarios to help shed light on this requirement.
