Workplaces have had to provide accommodations for medical use of cannabis since 2001. With legalization of marijuana in 2018 and the current opioid crisis, employers face increasing challenge providing safe workplaces and supporting their employees, particularly in the absence of a way to assess impairment. The Canadian Standards Association operating under CSA Group has engaged SRDC to produce a research paper on the management of workplace drug impairment.
By means of a literature review, environmental scan, and key informant interviews, SRDC will identify and assess the latest research on workplace drug impairment policies, guidelines, and training programs, and provide a gap analysis indicating which areas lend themselves to standards-based solutions.
