Ask the Code - Ask cannabis - Scared of tests

Dear Code of Conduct,
Now that cannabis is legal are you going to do random drug testing?
- Scared of tests
Dear Scared,

The rules around substance testing are set out in our Substance Use Guidelines.  Currently, we test in four situations:
  1. Pre-employment testing for safety sensitive positions.
  2. Reasonable cause testing (where we have objective reason to believe the person may be under the influence of a substance).
  3. Post incident or near miss (where reasonable cause exists).
  4. Post-treatment abstinence monitoring
