OPIOID AWARENESS WORKSHOP
We are facing a National Public emergency from Opiod poisoning. Deaths related to prescription and illicit opiods and potent synthetic opiods like fentanyl have had a significant increase in North America.
Health Canada remoed Narcan@ (Nalaxone) from the Prescription Drug list, as a result of this health crisis. The results were that emergency use of Naloxone could be utilized without prescription, as of 2016. It was made available to the public to use in cases of suspected opioid poisioning prior to the arrival of EMS personnel, to expedite saving a life from this powerful poison.
The objective of the Opioid Awareness workshop is to prevent disabiility and death by helping the general public recognize, access help and provide emergency care to victims of suspected opiod poisoning.
Opiod poisoning happens frequently at work, in the field or in the public. Hazard Assessment Part 2 of the Alberta Occupational Health and Safety Code notes that the employer shall assess the job hazards and train their employees to recognize hazards and receive training. Due to the higher frequency of this overdose, we ioffer this workshop as a convenient, reasonable and fast means to be trained. We come to your facility for groups or offer it at our locations.

No Show Policy
A "No Show" is defined as a student who does not attend or arrives more than 15 minutes late for a registered class. All “no shows” will result in a forfeit of course fees. The student will have to register again and pay to attend our programs.
A course prerequisite is any requirement a program identifies as necessary for a student to have successfully completed before taking the course. For example, H2S Alive, Common Safety Orientation and Ground Disturbance require that you bring government issued picture i.d. to the class. For recertification of CPR and First Aid, it is a requirement to send us the ticket to prove that the card has not expired yet.
It is the right of Allstar Enviro Safety and/or the instructor to cancel a student's registration in a course if the student has not satisfied the published prerequisites for the course. Failure to provide proof of prerequisites on the day of the training will result in a full forfeit of course fees. Students are ultimately responsible for knowing and adhering to course prerequisites.
Third Party Registrations and Payments (companies, parents, spouses, friend, etc.)
As a third-party registrant, you agree to these policies on behalf of the student. It is the third party’s responsibility to ensure that all communication for the program is received by the student.
