Fit for Duty (Impairment) Policy

Project Timeline: 1-2 Weeks | Cost: $560

Schedule Free 30 Minute Consultation

Package Overview

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.

Package Includes:

Program & Policy Review
Policy Development & Program Amendment
Management Program Review
Training Support Recommendations

How can we help?

Our Process

  1. Our team will start by reviewing any existing policies regarding prohibited impairment.
  2. We will then develop a new policy and program that includes but not limited to: goal, implementation, statement of philosophy, application and worker and management details.
  3. Once completed, we will review the updated program with management team and any additional key personnel.

Why is an Impairment Policy Important?

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.
