“Using available state and federal statistics, including the Centers for Disease Control, and interviews with a wide range of industry experts, Clapham details in clear, concise manner the toll that opioid abuse has taken on the construction industry,” the award judging committee wrote in bestowing the honor. “The story explains why construction workers are particularly at risk for opioid abuse, why so many workers are reluctant to seek help, and steps the industry and trade groups are taking to help workers, including having confidential employee assistance programs.”
