Envisioning a Collective Response to the Opiate Crisis Research Organization: National Association of Home Builders

David Jaffe
VP, Legal Advocacy

There is a need to raise awareness and provide education to help stem the tide of the opioid epidemic’s reach into the home building industry. NAHB is committed to undertaking a leadership role to address the opioid issue. However, this requires the support of subject matter experts to develop the resources necessary to raise awareness and create educational materials. An Opioid Working Group has been formed that will work with these outside experts to devise a comprehensive educational strategy. This project will provide much needed help to reduce opioid-related job-site injuries and deaths in the residential home building industry.

Key deliverables include:

  • Creation of toolkits and an educational website
  • Handbooks, fact sheets, webinars, workshops and eLearning courses
