Impairment in the Workplace

​​​​ Impairment and Workplace SafetySAFE Work Manitoba's latest campaign, Impairment in the Workplace, reminds us that it's important for everyone to understand the policies and procedures when it comes to impairment at work.

Has your business updated its Workplace Impairment Policy?

​With new cannabis legislation going into effect mid-October, now is a good time to review how your business plans to address impairment in the workplace. 

Impairment in the workplace is not only unsafe for the impaired worker, it's unsafe for the people around them. If a person is impaired because they consumed drugs or alcohol, it's important to know what steps to take to ensure they aren't putting themselves or others at risk.
