Impairment and Cannabis in the Workplace

Being impaired at work – whether by alcohol, drugs or another source – can affect our ability to focus, make decisions, follow instructions, and handle equipment and tools. This course focuses on impairment and the steps a workplace can take to address this issue, using cannabis as an example. Key steps include educating and training supervisors and employees on recognizing and dealing with impairment, providing clear guidance to all parties, and using a fair and consistent approach when applying policies and procedures.
