Naloxone in Ontario Workplaces
Naloxone is a drug that can temporarily reverse an opioid overdose. When someone overdoses on opioids, their breathing either slows or stops completely. If used right away, Naloxone can help them breathe normally and regain consciousness.
Psychological Health & Safety
Now more than ever, workers in the broader Public Service in Ontario are at risk for work-related mental injuries due to the frequency and severity of direct and indirect exposure to psychological hazards and psychosocial factors in the workplace.
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) is a mental health condition caused by witnessing or experiencing actual or threatened death, serious injury or violence.
The workplace is an important support system and resource to help workers build and strengthen resiliency. There are many ways leaders and the work community can foster qualities for resilience.
