GPS challenge of the week…DRUGS! Nearly 21 million Americans have a substance use disorder! It makes no difference if the abuse is with prescription drugs, illegal drugs or alcohol, these substances can lead to catastrophic accidents with serious if not fatal injuries.  These accidents could injure not only the worker abusing the drugs but could also injure innocent coworkers.

DO NOT ABUSE PRESCRIPTION DRUGS, ILLEGAL DRUGS OR ALCOHOL!

If you experience or see a safety concern on your assignment, please contact our Safety Hotline at 803-760-1441 or contact your local GPS office.  If you are injured on your assignment, please call MEDCOR at 1-800-775-5866 then contact your local GPS office.
