To All: Several week ago there was a discussion of the issues associated with Over the Counter Medications and the workplace. There was a good article on the subject contained in the April 2001 issue of Occupational Safety and Health. The URL is http://stevenspublishing.com/Stevens/OHSPub.nsf/frame?open& redirect=http://stevenspublishing.com/Stevens/ohsPub.nsf/PubHome/3CE57CE75DB42 FDA86256A1600738A41?Opendocument CHECKLIST: MINDING YOUR OTCs http://WWW.PRQ0.COM/apps/redir.asp?link=XbcdbhfhCG,YccejdfbaCG From cold remedies and headache medicines to antacids and sleep aids, American workers regularly dose themselves with over-the-counter (OTC) medicine before heading to their jobs. These remedies can help companies save money by ensuring employees are at work instead of at home sick. But too often, people don't follow the recommended dosage instructions, resulting in impaired judgment, blurred vision, dizziness, sleepiness and decreased motor skills. In many workplaces, these symptoms can lead to deadly accidents. Gary Jones
