Lean Construction techniques offer the builder a new and proven tool box of techniques to address all these challenges while increasing profits at the same time.

Opioid abuse is linked to problems with workplace productivity and safety. According to a report released in August 2018 by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH), from 2011 to 2015, construction workers died from opioid overdoses at six times the average rate for all Massachusetts workers.

Join us for a discussion of changing laws and legal concerns related to opioids and medical marijuana in the workplace. We will review recent court decisions, the interaction between state law and potential conflicts with federal laws and other legal challenges for employers. Also learn what NAHB is doing to address the opioid epidemic in the home building industry.
