Developing an Alcohol and Drug Policy Workshop

Labour, Employment & Human Rights Group, Environmental, Health and Safety Prevention Services, Occupational Health and Safety & Workers' Compensation Group

With the anticipated legalization of recreational marijuana, employers are facing new and unique challenges regarding safety in the workplace. Employers need to prepare for legislative changes and the potential effect to the health and safety of their workers in the workplace. Employers should be reviewing any current alcohol and drug policies or consider creating a new policy with the focus for workers to arrive to work 'fit for duty'. 

This half-day workshop provides human resource and OHS managers and supervisors with a practical experience in the development of a 'fit for duty' policy that includes the potential hazards of alcohol and drug use in the workplace. This workshop will provide a best practice review of the essential elements of a policy: planning, implementation and review. The second part of the workshop will be creating or refining a policy for your specific workplace.

  • Recent case law and relevant decisions regarding drug and alcohol policies   
  • A review of the legislated duties of workplace parties and how these duties may affect roles and responsibilities within your policy   
  • A review of the essential elements of every policy, considering specific industries and types of workplaces   

  • Working through essential elements and assisting in the organization of an effective and legally compliant drug and alcohol policy
