Impairment and Workplace Safety

Impairment and Workplace Safety

​Recreational cannabis becomes legal on October 17, 2018, and you may be wondering how that will affect your workplace. If a person is impaired at work, it can negatively impact their safety and the safety of others in the workplace.

Employers have a responsibility to ensure a safe workplace, as set out by Part 4 of The Workplace Safety and Health Act in Manitoba. Developing, updating and following a policy to address workplace impairment will demonstrate due diligence on the part of the employer.

Visit our resources and check out our campaign to learn more about developing and updating impairment policies.

Our Impairment FAQs and our Shop Talk on cannabis are also available in French.
