New CCOHS online course addresses impairment in the workplace
Feb. 1, 2018 – When workers are impaired on the job, whether by fatigue, use of drugs, or consumption of alcohol, it can have serious consequences. To help workplaces take steps to address the issue of impairment, the Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety (CCOHS) has launched the e-course Impairment and Cannabis in the Workplace.
Using cannabis as an example, the e-course, Impairment and Cannabis in the Workplace, will provide managers and supervisors, health and safety committee members, human resources specialists, and health and safety advisors with an understanding of what impairment is, as well as its impact and causes, and the importance of having a workplace policy and corresponding procedures about impairment.
Impairment and Cannabis in the Workplace is available on the CCOHS website: www.ccohs.ca/products/courses/impairment/.
