Construction Opioid Awareness Week

Jul 20, 2018

PBX Assists in Creating a Resolution to Bring Awareness

to Opioid Usage by Construction Workers

Pennsylvania House of Representatives unanimously supported a resolution declaring the last full week of July as “Construction Opioid Awareness Week.” PBX worked with construction associations and labor organizations across the Commonwealth to launch this initiative.

House Resolution 981 designates the last full week of July as “Construction Opioid Awareness Week” in Pennsylvania. This resolution states the problem and suggests that construction companies promote awareness of the problem and potential solutions. Our organization plans to make resources available to our members and we will encourage each member to participate in a toolbox talk on opioids during this week.
