New webpage for substance abuse and impairment in the workplace

Published on: July 17, 2018

A new webpage is available to help prepare for cannabis legalization and address concerns about substance use and impairment in the workplace.

You’ll find information about the effects of substance-use impairment in the workplace and the responsibilities of workers and employers to manage impairment. You can also access a primer on how to prepare for cannabis legislation.

Physical or mental impairment in the workplace can create a significant risk of injury and death to the impaired worker, co-workers, and members of the public.
