John Dony- Director, Campbell Institute: National Safety Council 

This spring, the world was turned on its head, and no industry has been unaffected by the global impact of COVID-19. While there is no doubt the past several months have been a trying time, many organizations have risen to the challenge of keeping their people safe throughout this crisis. In April, the National Safety Council convened a national task force of such employers, along with trade associations, government organizations, doctors, mental health experts, and perspectives from the legal, HR, and labor communities.  Dubbed SAFER (Safe Actions for Employee Returns), this task force has proposed recommendations and provided tools for employers readying to return to or expand operations. This session will share some key ongoing recommendations from the task force as we enter into the next phase of our shared mission to keep our people safe, from the workplace to anyplace.

Shannon Bresaw- Program Director

This session will explore the development and implementation of New Hampshire’s Recovery Friendly Workplace (RFW) initiative, established by Gov. Chris Sununu in 2018. It empowers businesses to promote health and wellness by creating work environments that address substance use concerns head on. The initiative gives businesses the resources and support they need to foster a supportive environment that encourages the success of their employees in recovery — empowering workplaces to proactively challenge stigma, provide support for people recovering from substance use disorder, and prevent substance misuse.
