General Workplace Safety Hazards – 2

The 2nd hazard is something that has been gaining attention in this century because of the increased addiction rates among the general population.


We all know that drugs are not allowed at work. But with some individuals who have a problem with substance abuse this is a rising problem. It is not necessarily illegal drugs, but rather the use and misuse of opioids which have been gaining attention.



It is important to be aware and notice the signs of addiction, particularly opioid addiction and to take it up with the person involved or have a superior take it up with the person involved.


Offer your support but also be firm regarding this, if the person needs help see to it that they get it.
