OHS Canada’s inaugural symposium on marijuana in the workplace, which was held at the International Centre in Mississauga on February 21, 2018, featured three experts who shared their insights on workplace-safety issues associated with the legalization of recreational marijuana. Topics addressed include balancing compliance and enforcement requirements with employee privacy, understanding accommodation and bona fide occupational requirements, learning best practices in ensuring fitness for duty and managing worker expectations. The symposium was followed by a roundtable during which the speakers took questions from the floor.
