The United States Postal Service (USPS) published a “Safety Talk” for employees that discussed everything from sunburns, to dog bites, to substance abuse. The section of the Safety Talk on substance abuse included a definition of substance abuse and how the USPS assists its employees who may be chemically dependent on a substance. The USPS also has a Postal Employee Assistance Program (EAP) for treatment and support. The Safety Talk also included an EAP brochure which the USPS encouraged all employees to review and share with family, children, and friends, to help assist others in treating their substance abuse. The Safety Talk ends with the phrase, "Let's end substance abuse together."
This button was most likely given at the same time as the Safety Talk’s publication, to help enforce the USPS message to end substance abuse.
