Today’s issue of WorkCompRecap features the unfortunate news from Chesapeake Employers’ Insurance Company that overdose deaths caused by prescription opioids continue to increase in Maryland with 210 deaths in the first half of 2016, which was a 10% increase over 1H 2015.
In response, Chesapeake Employers noted the importance of helping tackle the issue of opioid drug abuse and addiction on all fronts, including helping employers promote the prevention message in their workplaces. As a result, they have created the “STOPioid Drug Addiction Prevention Message Kit” for employers. The kit is free and includes prevention awareness posters; a safety article, tip sheet and flyer; as well as digital graphics.
