Some forestry workers who work in safety sensitive environments do not acknowledge or heed the warning labels on their prescription or over-the-counter medications.
On the jobsite or while driving or operating machinery, this means that workers could be lightheaded, nauseous, dizzy, drowsy or weak.
If workers are required to make decisions that affect the safety of themselves or others, the probability of making a mistake may increase.
