SafeWORK Summit 2018 - "O'Cannabis"
O'Cannabis - The implications of marijuana – both medical and recreational – on your current workplace policies.
On July 1, 2018, Canadians will enter a brave new world as the Liberal government legalizes recreational marijuana.
The new legislation is simple to understand in terms of the rights of individuals; however, it gets much more complicated when it comes to how marijuana should be used, tolerated or forbidden at work. Now more than ever, employers and employees must know how to discuss and deal with marijuana in the workplace. The best thing you can do to protect your business and your people is to stay informed, be prepared for questions that come up, and understand the implications of marijuana – both medical and recreational – on your current workplace policies.
Our Keynote speaker will be announced soon so stay posted
Managing Mental Health Matters – Invited Speaker, Canadian Mental Health Association
As a responsible employer, we know you're focused on providing a physically safe workplace for your employees. But what about their mental health? Just as you would address physical injuries with first aid, it's equally important to address mental health with similar approaches.
Managing Mental Health Matters is focused on helping managers, supervisors and other leaders learn how to effectively recognize and manage mental health related issues in the workplace. It's important for managers to be aware of what may be necessary or practical when providing workplace accommodations. There is a legal duty to offer reasonable accommodation when an employee is suffering from a disability, seen or unseen. Reasonably accommodating staff can provide opportunities for maximizing productivity. Knowing the opportunities and limitations will allow managers to be as effective as possible with all employees.
Additional speakers and topics forthcoming.
