NSC Wants Workplace Policies for Painkiller Use

From the National Safety Council website:

“A new report by the National Safety Council examines recent court decisions in which injured workers died from an overdose of pain medications.

This report identifies:

– When opioid-related overdose is compensable.

– How to protect your injured workers from potential dangers of opioid pain medications.

– How employers can reduce the risk of compensable costs associated with opioid use or related to opioid use.
