Ohio Trucking Safety Council - July Program
Thursday, July 13, 2023 (11:30 AM - 1:30 PM) (EDT)
The July meeting of the Ohio Trucking Safety Council will feature Allison Sharer from Safex discussing "MMJ. THC. CBD. OMG: The Employer's Challenge."
Businesses are struggling to figure out how to respond to marijuana ... and hemp ... and Delta-8 THC ... and CBD. And it’s no wonder, as our country is in the midst of trying to change our culture's relationship with our most widely used illicit drug - marijuana. And those changes are happening at a very quick pace. The majority of states across the county have some sort of marijuana law on the books. No two state’s marijuana laws are the same, and the laws are changing constantly due to legislation and court decisions.
Employees are wondering what all these new laws and products mean to them and their jobs, while employers are left wondering about whether -- or how -- to adjust company policies and operations in an ever-changing environment. Discover some of the challenges employers need to overcome when deciding how to respond to the use of these substances.
To increase awareness of
- Current trends re. marijuana and related products
- Operational issues facing employers and employees around these issues
- Key decisions that need to be made - particularly relating to policy, testing and employee/supervisor awareness
- Testing options
