An employer is required to ensure that every reasonable precaution is taken to ensure the protection of workers, including prohibiting impairment or the presence of alcohol or drugs in workplaces. We provide support to employers who do not have available internal resources to investigating and updating policy, or who want to bring in an outside firm to support culture change or reinforce the importance of compliance.
The first step we take in these projects is a 30 minute discovery meeting to better understand your needs and context. This also will give you an opportunity to ask any questions you might have about our audit process or about the act and legislation in general.
To book a discovery meeting or just ask some questions, call our consulting team directly at (866) 756-5554.

An employer is required to ensure that every reasonable precaution is taken to ensure the protection of workers given their circumstances. The employer is also required to prepare and review a written occupational health and safety policy at least once annually and develop and maintain a program to implement that policy
There are provisions in three sector regulations under The Occupational Health and Safety Act that expressly prohibit impairment or the presence of alcohol or drugs in workplaces. There are requirements for all workplace parties (including workers, supervisors and employers) under these three regulations.
