- This event has passed.
The annual costs of opioid addiction in construction continue to grow, both in terms of human impact and lost production on the jobsite. And the AGC of Greater Milwaukee focuses on this issue as part of its multi-faceted approach to safety.
That is why the AGC is working with the State of Wisconsin to bring in Paul Krupski, Director of Opioid Initiatives for the Dept. of Health Services, to speak to our members about the opioid epidemic in Wisconsin, as well as warning signs and treatment options. The second part of the program will focus on resources for employers, effective communications with employees, and ways to successfully assist an employee’s return to work following an injury.
Safety conscious employers who attend this program will attain the basic tools necessary to create a safer worksite for their employees and company.
