Widespread availability and use of opioids is hazardous in daily life and potentially disastrous in workplaces. A great deal of discussion of opioids is appearing in popular media. However, employers and employees in manufacturing and related workplaces should be interested in taking the discussion to a deeper level in order to address awareness and actions that might maintain a safe workplace.

At the end of this presentation, the participant will be able to:
- Describe relevant toxicological issues of opioid use and control
- Illustrate current status of the problem in the workplace
- Identify personal and workplace hazards and responsibilities
