Meeting Topic & Overview:
Cannabis, Opioids, and Other Legal Drugs in the Workplace
The legalization of cannabis for recreational use, in addition to opioids, and other legal drugs may present concerns and challenges in the workplace. Although legal, employers need to increases awareness of the impacts of cannabis opioids, and other legal drugs in the workplace and prepare for potential questions and challenges. The main focus of this presentation is on health and safety as well as employer and employee rights and obligations. Participants will explore general guidelines for responding to impairment and will also be encouraged to explore their organization’s specific policies, procedures and protocols surrounding cannabis opioids, and other legal drugs in the workplace.
The presentation will also addresses the stigma that users of cannabis and other legal drug users may encounter at work and highlights the importance of creating a supportive workplace that promotes respect and inclusion for those facing challenges and strives to keep employees safe and healthy.
