Ask the Code - Cannabis edition - Concerned coworker
Dear Code of Conduct,
I am concerned about one of my coworkers: he smells of cannabis, his eyes are red and he is yawning all the time. He operates safety sensitive equipment. Am I obligated to do or say anything?
- Concerned coworker
Yes, you do need to say something because you have an obligation to help keep the workplace safe. You should reach out to one of these contacts:
- Your Leader
- Your HR Business Advisory Business Partner
- A Corporate Health Consultant
- Your Union Representative (if you are unionized).
- Your Safety Advisor
One of the people above can talk to this individual and investigate further. Thank you for asking this question and helping to keep our workplace safe for everyone.
