BWC Launches Opioid Workplace Safety Program

BWC’s pilot program to support employers willing to hire workers struggling to overcome an addiction to opioids and other dangerous substances launched this month in three counties.

The Opioid Workplace Safety Program will provide up to $5 million over two years to help employers in Montgomery, Ross and Scioto counties hire, manage and retain workers in recovery.

BWC is partnering with county Alcohol, Drug Addiction and Mental Health boards to coordinate the pilot program. The boards will identify eligible employers and employees, disperse funding and measure results. 10/17/2018
