Cannabis and the Workplace: Managing the Impact of Legalization

Cannabis is Legal, Now What? How to Safely Manage the Impact of Legalization in your Workplace

Cannabis in the workplace is a rapidly growing and highly contentious issue, especially for employers who operate in safety sensitive environments. The Canadian Government has legalized cannabis for non-medical recreational use, effective October 17 2018. The topic of cannabis accessibility and consumption is sensitive, complex, and highly polarized with issues and implications for health and safety. Employers have questions about how to respond to this new landscape. What changes are necessary to current policies and procedures? What if employees’ recreational use off-duty affects workplace performance? Are you ready for this unprecedented change? What do you do if you are not? This presentation focuses on helping employers to understand the changes, the implications for health and safety, and to provide an “urgent response” solution to the various challenges in safety sensitive industries.
