Marijuana at Work – Presented by:  ARCpoint Labs

As of today, 46 of the 50 states in our country authorized either the personal and/or medical use of marijuana or cannabidiol (CBD).  This means, one in four Americans now live in a state where cannabis use is fully legal for all adults. With stats like that, there are sure to be impacts in today’s workplace environments that employers need to be aware of, and most importantly, be prepared. With new laws come new rules and court decisions for employers to navigate. We will review the top concerns for the workplace along with tools for employers to stay ahead of these fast-changing rules.

In this seminar you will learn:

-How new state laws are effecting businesses like yours

-What concerns you should have and the questions you should be asking

-How to stay ahead of the changes and maintain an easy to follow drug and alcohol testing program


Creating a Safety Culture in Today’s Climate  – Presented by: 

Talking points will include:

-Getting employees to buy into a culture of safety on the jobsite

-How to promote a safer jobsite to prevent injury

-The reality of substance abuse in the construction industry

-The impact of employees coming to work impaired (Marijuana, Opioids, etc.)
