The Canadian Model for Providing a Safe Workplace was first issued in 1999 to establish standardized alcohol and drug guidelines ensuring fairness and consistency throughout the industry. It helps to standardize the approach, testing, application and rehabilitation of workers.
The purpose of the Canadian Model is to contribute to a safe workplace for all workers by reducing the risks associated with the inappropriate use of alcohol and drugs. This Safety Awareness Bulletin is intended to help create awareness and enhance understanding of the Canadian Model.
July 1st 2018 The Canadian Model for Providing a Safe Workplace released the updated 6.0 version to represent a standardized alcohol and drug policy for the construction industry. This updated policy provides best practices, procedures and guidelines to help reduce the risk of substance abuse in the workplace.
