CLEVELAND, Ohio - Addiction recovery-themed hard hat stickers, carpenter's pencils and sports radio ads are a few of the tools public health workers in Massachusetts are using to reach those hardest hit by opioid overdose deaths there: trade workers. Those initiatives might be of interest to officials in Ohio where construction trade workers also are at a higher risk to die from opioid overdoses.
CLEVELAND, Ohio -- We know that construction workers are especially at risk for opioid overdoses. The jobs are tough. And for years, pain pills were liberally prescribed and often shared on job sites. There's also a work hard/play hard mentality. Other physical or dangerous jobs carry some additional risk. Tree trimming, farming, mining and drilling landscaping, machine and auto-body repair also carry an above-average risk of dying from an opioid overdose.
CLEVELAND, Ohio – Ohio construction workers last year were seven times more likely to die of an opioid overdose than workers in other jobs, according to a Plain Dealer analysis of 12,000 opioid overdose deaths in Ohio from 2010 through 2016. The Plain Dealer explored the deaths that involved heroin, fentanyl and other opioids, using categories created by the federal Bureau of Labor Statistics, to see which jobs and industries in Ohio might be hardest hit.
Muck Rack makes it simple to find people, tweets, or articles that mention any name, keyword, company, hashtag etc. We've compiled this guide to help you make the most of your search.
Selecting a term
Start searching tweets, articles from media outlets, articles mentioned in tweets, journalists'
names, titles and bios with some suggested searches:
Companies or Topics (e.g. iPhone, Microsoft)
Phrases (e.g. "cloud computing") — use quotes to keep the terms together
Twitter handles (e.g. @username) — returns those who have mentioned or replied to
Names (e.g. "David Pogue")
Hashtags (e.g. #sxsw, #london2012)
Bio details (e.g. vegan, Olympics, father)
Muck Rack's Advanced Search allows for many boolean operators.
Find results that mention multiple specified terms, use AND or
+. For example, ensure each result contains both Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg by
searching Musk AND Zuckerberg or Musk + Zuckerberg.
Use the operators OR or , to broaden your search when you'd like either of
multiple terms to appear in results. (This is the default behavior of our search when no operators
are used). For example, results will contain either cake or cookie by searching cake OR cookie or cake,cookie
Use NOT or - to subtract results from your search. For
example, searching Disney will yield results about the Walt Disney Company as well as Walt Disney
World Resort. To exclude mentions of Disney World, search for Disney -World or Disney
When using one of these operators with a phrase, enclose it in quotation marks. For example, you can
find results about smartphones excluding Apple's iPhone 4S by searching smartphone -"iPhone
Exact case matching or punctuation
If you're searching for a brand name or keyword that relies on specific punctuation marks or capitalization, you can
find results that match your exact query by adding matchcase: before the keyword you're searching for, like matchcase:E*TRADE .
Use parentheses to separate multiple
boolean phrases. For example, to find journalists talking about having fun in Disney World or
Disneyland, search for ("disney world" OR disneyland) AND fun.
An asterisk can be used to search for any variation of a root word truncated by the asterisk. For example, searching for admin* will return results for administrator, administration, administer, administered, etc.
A near operator is an AND operator where you can control the distance between the words. You can vary the distance the near operation uses by adding a forward slash and number (between 0-99) such as strawberries NEAR/10 "whipped cream", which means the strawberries must exist within 10 words of "whipped cream".
