Canada Drug & Alcohol Awareness — Employee Training
Fitness for Duty. Reasonable Cause. Compliance.
Making the Workplace Safer and Mitigating Liability with Training
This course is for all employees that need to understand safety risks in a workplace with a drug and alcohol policy and that are subject to drug and alcohol testing.
Corridor’s drug and alcohol awareness training for employees focuses on the keys of being “fit for duty”, how drug and alcohol testing is conducted, what happens if the test is positive, return to duty procedures and outlines individual responsibilities for ensuring the health and safety of all staff. The training also educates employees on the health effects of alcohol use and abuse, illegal drugs, prescription drugs, cannabis — the difference between smoking/inhalation, edibles and the prolonged effect of ingesting cannabis.
This 1 hour course will ensure that all employees understand the drug and alcohol policies and aid in keeping the workplace safe. Topics in our employee courses include:
- Applicable legislation (human rights, privacy, OH&S)
- Drugs and their effects (alcohol, cannabis, illicit drugs, prescription medications)

- What can trigger an investigation and testing
- Safety risks
- Reasonable cause and post-incident testing protocols

“We are here because of the broader fitness for duty issues, and there are a lot of different substances that can affect someone’s ability on the job. Some of them are legal; some of them are illegal… Our concern is more than just cannabis; we need to address the whole fitness for duty side of things.”
