Boston, MA On June 5th from 11 a.m. to 12 p.m. the AGCMA-Associated General Contractors of Mass. will hold an Opioid Stand Down as part of its new Building the Path to Recovery campaign to eliminate Opioid use in the commercial construction industry.
In continuation of the successful AGC MA Commercial Construction Industry Opioid Summit this past January, AGC MA will once again be joined by the MA Building Trades, OSHA and the Grayken Institute for Addiction as allies in the Stand Down.
The Building the Path to Recovery’s campaign mission is to create awareness and support industry members and their families by providing continuous resources for employers and employees through educational platforms and communication channels.
As part of the campaign, and through a grant from the MA Construction Advancement Program (MCAP), AGC MA members will receive an Opioid Stand Down package complete with an opioid awareness toolbox talk, vinyl job-site signs, branded tee-shirts and hard hat stickers. The AGC MA Safety and H.R. committees will provide manuals on Onsite Safety and H.R. Best Practices. Members will also receive an Opioid Use Stand Down Planning Guide and social media kit provided by the AGC MA staff.
The central location for the Stand Down will take place at AGC MA-members John Moriarty & Associates and Janey Construction Management’s Omni Boston Hotel project, located at 370-430 Summer St. in the Seaport District.
AGC MA members and the media will be invited to participate in the Stand Down on every one of their jobsites to work in coordination to deliver the campaign message.
Continued efforts will include additional resources through the AGC MA website, social media, the AGC MA newsletter and various speaker programs.
