Title of Presentation
Weed at Work: Medical or Legal - What's My Role? My Responsibility?

Session Description
Regardless of whether your employees are using marijuana for medical purposes or recreationally, the health and safety implications for workplaces are many. Managing this complex topic requires specialized knowledge in several key areas: the science of the substance, the role of a workplace drug and alcohol policy, and strategies for effective workplace management. It also requires employers to bring together a combination of resources for effective oversight and program application. Coordinating these various components may seem daunting but, as with most things, is doable with a thoughtful strategy and planned approach.

This session is designed to provide you with insight and practical tools to educate your workforce, protect your organization and mitigate overall risk. Current best practices will be presented and discussed, with an action plan for successful implementation.

Learning Objectives
Explain how the safety concerns with marijuana differ from alcohol. Identify required policy components to address marijuana use. Identify the key elements of a safety management system to address marijuana use.
