Across Canada, between January 2016 and September 2021, three out of four people dying from an opioid overdose were men, and 20-30% of those employed at the time of their death worked in construction or other skilled trades.
Physically demanding jobs may come with pain, injury and stress. This often leads to using substances to cope. People who use drugs may not reach out for help when they need it because they fear that they will be judged, get in trouble, or be seen as weak.
To bring awareness to this issue and help those who may be afraid to reach out for help when they need it, the Ontario Building Trades have partnered with St John’s Ambulance (SJA) in developing a construction-specific “Opioid Poisoning and Response Training” program.
401-75 International Boulevard, Etobicoke, ON M9W 6L9. Spaces are limited and subject to change.
