More choice for employers looking to access free Naloxone training
By law (Occupational Health and Safety Act, section 25.2 and O. Reg. 559/22), businesses at risk of a worker opioid overdose are required to have at least one naloxone kit available onsite and staff trained in its use.
To support the compliance of this legislation, Ontario’s Workplace Naloxone Program was established, providing eligible employers free naloxone training for up to two workers and one free nasal spray naloxone kit per workplace.
The program launched with two training providers; however, to increase training access to employers, there are now eight official training providers in total.
