Cannabis can have a major impact on the safety of your workers, and cannabis legalization is creating new challenges. Learn how cannabis can affect employees’ ability to work, drive and function, discover policies you should have in your workplace, and get the information and resources you need to address marijuana use and cannabis-related products.
The symposium is targeted at those who may deal with the consequences of cannabis, including health and safety professionals, law enforcement, municipalities, supervisors, union representatives and human resources staff.
