L'affaiblissement des facultés et le cannabis au travail (français) (1 heure)

Les employeurs ont l'obligation de veiller à ce que tous les travailleurs aient la capacité de remplir leurs fonctions en toute sécurité. Avoir les facultés affaiblies au travail, que ce soit à cause de l'alcool, de drogues ou d'une autre raison, peut nuire à la capacité de se concentrer, de prendre des décisions, de respecter des consignes et de manipuler de l'équipement et des outils.
