Cannabis Safety: Enhanced Workplace Impairment Policies
By: Paula Stanley, Manager Environmental Health & Safety, email
Is your business or workplace ready for the legalization of cannabis?
Although it is a big change for Canadian policy, is it really a big change for your business? Your expectations are the same, that employees not report to work while under the influence. As an Employer you have a right to include the use of recreational cannabis in your impairment policy. A workplace impairment policy is now a critical part of your overall Health & Safety Program.
Everyone has a duty to ensure safety at work and understand how using a substance (medical or recreational) can impact their ability to do their job safely.
How will you be communicating this to your teams? What will your policy be?
