The legalization of marijuana is not a dangerous experiment—the prohibition is the experiment, and it has failed dramatically, with millions of victims all around the world. –Sebastian Marincolo

The legal cannabis industry has important employee health and safety implications for legal growers. Legalized recreational marijuana is forecasted to become a $22.6 billion industry in Canada. Alright! This will include the retail market, growers, product makers, testing labs and security. All these new workers coming into a relatively new industry will require health and safety training delivered in a way that will stick.
We know safety training isn’t the most exciting subject matter for most people. That’s why we provide engaging and entertaining trainers. They make it an enjoyable experience for your staff, and they deliver the information so that your people will actually remember it! Cannabis companies, in particular those involved in growing and harvesting operations, realize they need to make workplace health and safety a priority. According to an estimate by Cannabis at Work, Canada could add 150,000 jobs in the industry over the next couple of years alone. That’s a lot of new workers that will need training.
Cannabis growers need to prepare their workers for a wide range of potential workplace hazards. New staff needs to receive their WHMIS training before they begin their work, and no one should operate equipment until they are properly trained to use it.
Some of the issues that can impact the health and safety of your workers:
By being proactive, your company can demonstrate to your employees that they are appreciated and valued. This helps attract and retain the best candidates in a competitive job market.
