Our Naloxone Toolkit is designed to assist employers with an easy, step-by-step process for implementing a naloxone program immediately within their organization. Our workforce is faced with overdose death rates reaching over 108,000 individuals annually — one death occurred every five minutes within the U.S. in 2021.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics reports that overdose deaths at work increased by at least 135% from 2015 to 2020. Recent studies show higher opioid overdose death rates among workers in industries and occupations with high rates of work-related injuries and illnesses. This affordable toolkit will prepare your employer by enabling you to develop a naloxone policy, procedures, and employee training program.

Our Naloxone Toolkit is designed for you to implement immediately at your organization, complete with policy and procedure examples, an employee training module, and more.
- A policy template that provides drafted language addressing the organization’s purpose of the naloxone program, policy outline, regulatory provisions, and employee training. The policy example to be provided has received legal review.
- A procedures template that provides a checklist of items that will need to be discussed prior to completing your policy and procedures documents and training implementation.
- Documentation outlining naloxone use, deployment, maintenance/replacement, reporting, and definitions language. Templates include a Naloxone Usage Report and Program Awareness materials, such as Company Program Employee Flyer and an employee training email copy template to assist with the program launch.
- A Facilitator’s Guide that will assist personnel within your organization to easily introduce the program and training to employees. This detailed guide provides step-by-step training set up, policy and procedure points to review, and talking points to introduce and conclude the training. A self-guided training handout is also available for those employees taking the training on their own. Templates include an Attendees Training Participants Log to track your training attendees information, along with a Facilitator’s Feedback Form to encourage input from each facilitator on how SAFE Workplaces can improve the program. An Attendee Feedback Form is also included to allow input to the facilitator regarding the effectiveness of the training and overall program.
- A 30-minute training module that can be offered in-person or virtually, introducing the overdose epidemic and its impact in the workplace and community. The goal of the training is for attendees to gain an understanding of the magnitude of the opioid epidemic, how it affects the workplace, preventative measures available such as naloxone, and how to administer it. The content will provide opioid/fentanyl overdose, signs/symptoms, and naloxone education, as well as additional information on overdose causes, naloxone myths, the brain science of addiction, risk factors, impact on families, non-opioid alternatives, and recovery outcomes. A set of four questions will be administered at the end of the training to assess knowledge enhancement by the participant.
