IWH Speaker Series
The link between workplace injury and fatality risks and the use of substances affecting the central nervous system
Nancy Carnide, Institute for Work & Health
Prescription and recreational drugs that act on the central nervous system can have many adverse effects, including cognitive and psychomotor impairment. An IWH systematic review has looked into the link between workplace injury and fatality risks and the use of such substances—including opioids, benzodiazepines and cannabis. In this presentation, Dr. Nancy Carnide shares findings from that systematic review.
