Risk of Impairment from Cannabis

When workers are impaired on the job, whether by fatigue, use of drugs, or
consumption of alcohol, it can have serious consequences.

A white paper, published by the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and
Safety, discusses the implications associated with the use of cannabis for both
therapeutic and recreational purposes. It includes information for employers,
workers, and others interested in workplace health and safety, and offers
guidance on how to:

- address the potential for impairment as part of a hazard assessment
- establish a concise policy and program on the use of any substance that can
cause impairment
- determine the actions the workplace can take regarding impairment
- implement accommodation practices where necessary, including therapeutic
needs and substance dependence
- create a supportive, healthy and safe workplace.
