Earlier this week, the Pennsylvania Senate unanimously passed a bill that would require employer safety committees to educate workers on substance abuse.

If signed into law Senate Bill 147 would modify state statutes to require that in order to be certified by the workplace safety committee from the Pennsylvania Department of Labor & Industries, employers must provide information regarding the risks associated with substance abuse, including prescribed opioid painkiller use.
