Cannabis & The Workplace

Someone who is impaired may have difficulty completing their work tasks safely and may put themselves, their coworkers and the public in danger.


There are many potential causes of impairment. In addition to factors such as fatigue, and certain medical conditions these include the use of legal and illegal substances such as:

  • Alcohol
  • Cannabis
  • Street drugs
  • Certain medications


Employees must:

  • Work safely
  • Understand the impact that using substances (medical/therapeutic or non-medical) can have on their safety and that of others
