Aaron North, co-founder President & CEO at Vector Medical Corporation

While there is growing concern among Canadian employers about the risk of worker impairment from cannabis and other drugs of abuse, the conversation has begun to broaden. Increasingly, employers are contemplating the safety implications of impairing prescription medications, including opioids, SSRIs, mood stabilizers, and even nausea medications.

This webinar explores the workplace safety risks associated with neurocognitive and psychomotor side-effects seen in many of today’s most widely-used prescription medications. The session then takes a deep dive into the impairment profiles of several common prescription medications, highlighting strategies OHNs can utilize to recognize and manage this long-standing and ever-increasing issue.
