Impairment

Are you fit to work?

The term impairment refers to a variety of conditions and/or substances that impact a worker's normal ability to work safely.

Impairment (also known as unfit for duty/work) at any worksite can have severe consequences for not only the impaired worker, but also their co-workers, supervisor, and employer.

Impairment can come from fatigue, stress, illness, or the use of alcohol, illicit drugs, prescribed and over-the-counter medication.

Cannabis legalization: what should employers know?

Employers have always been responsible for ensuring their workers are able to perform work safely. This has not changed with the legalization of recreational cannabis.
