Learn about your role as a worker in recognizing and responding to workplace impairment.
When most people think about impairment, the use and effects of alcohol, cannabis, or other drugs likely comes to mind. While these may be the most obvious sources, impairment can be caused by any substance or event that results in a lack of concentration, the inability to do a task, or the inability to make decisions. Examples can include bullying, life stresses, unresolved conflicts, and fatigue.
