As more workers become involved in the cannabis industry, there is an increased risk of injuries and exposure to industrial hazards in the workplace. Many of the same principles associated with agricultural production apply to cannabis production safety. Learn how preventive efforts make good business sense when you begin to consider the possible costs associated with a tragic accident. Overall, a lack of information about what equipment is needed, how to protect your workers, and how to put these compliance programs in place.
Education is important for informing workers about workplace hazards in the cannabis industry and controls so they can work more safely and be more productive. Learn the role of education and training is to provide workers and managers with a greater understanding of the safety and health program itself. Find how they can contribute to its development and implementation, but depending upon employees’ specific responsibilities, employers must provide them with training that relates to cannabis operations conducted at their worksites.
The cannabis industry is considered a “moderate hazard” workplace by government safety regulatory agencies and administrations, but real hazards exist in the form of pesticides, electricity and, slips, trips, and falls. You will learn the first step to implement a successful and compliant safety program is to educate everyone in the workplace on the applicable rules and regulations. You must understand what it takes to implement a cannabis industry safety and health compliance program is knowing which specific regulations need to be included.
Almost every day, you hear about an active shooter when a cannabis location is robbed. Since the cannabis industry produces a valuable commodity, knowing how to react is key to avoiding a frightening and unpredictable situation. The cost to owners and insurance companies is substantial in financial losses, not even counting the loss to business revenues that may occur from adverse publicity. More alarming is the growing trend in violence during these times, which in some cases have led to many employees and customers being injured.
Bloodborne pathogens are infectious micro-organisms in human blood that can cause disease in humans. Learn what to do when there is an injury from a sharp object that may expose workers to bloodborne pathogens. Workers in many positions in the cannabis workplace may be at risk for exposure to all bloodborne pathogens. In order to reduce or eliminate the hazards of occupational exposure to bloodborne pathogens, you must always implement an exposure control plan for the worksite with details on protection measures.
Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD’s) affect the muscles, nerves, blood vessels, ligaments, and tendons. Workers in many different positions in the cannabis industry can be exposed to risk factors in the workplace, such as lifting heavy objects, bending over, reaching overhead, carrying heavy loads, working in awkward body postures, and performing the same or similar tasks repetitively. Learn how exposure to risks for MSD’s in the cannabis industry increases the chances of worker injury and how these specific work-related MSD’s can be prevented.
There are several types of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and programs that can be put in place to help protect the health and safety of cannabis workers. Different types of respirators may be needed to help protect against short- and long-term exposure to cannabis plants, mold, or pesticides. Additionally, safety eyewear and safety sun wear can help protect from the sun, Ultra-Violet (UV) lights, pesticides, chemicals, debris while handling cannabis and using gloves, protective clothing, and proper eye protection to prevent worker injury.
Slip, trip, and fall hazards are the most common in the cannabis industry and they make up the majority of accidents. The potential for these same-level incidents exists when unintended or unexpected changes occur between the feet and the walking surface. Learn different examples, including items blocking pathways, loose mats, and wet walking surfaces. Slip, trip, and fall hazards can come in many forms, for example, during cultivation workers may encounter a slip hazard while working if the cannabis plants had been watered recently.
Cultivation operations require a great deal of electrical energy. This translates to hazards in many forms such as temporary wiring (ex. extension cords), missing breakers, blocked electrical panels, improperly wired units, electricity use in high humidity and watering areas, improper repairs, unguarded fans, overloaded circuits, inadequate wiring, lack of training and electrical safety. Beyond these electrical hazards listed in their routine operational states, employers are further required to protect from hazardous energy sources on equipment.
Learn how hazardous materials in the cannabis industry are any materials that poses a significant hazard to human health, safety or the environment, such as substances that are flammable, corrosive, reactive, oxidizing, combustible, toxic or radioactive. Hazardous materials commonly found in cannabis-related activity include, but are not limited to: fertilizers, soil amendments, rodenticides, herbicides, fungicides, pesticides and insecticides, as well as fuel used onsite for power generators and/or heating elements, plus many more.

Accessibility Compliant Platform
One of the biggest challenges that learners face today is "accessibility" in their eLearning solutions. Our platform is American Disability Act (ADA), Accessible Canada Act, etc. compliant, and why we started our "Industry Impact Program".
We are sensitive to disabilities so we provide closed-captioning (sub-titles) for hearing-impaired and screen readers for visually-impaired individuals who want to learn. We have worked extensively to MEET these "accessibility" standards.
Our platform is composed of a complex system with many aspects of development that are always evolving so "accessibility" is NOT a state so it's a continuous process of improvement in response to our learners and platform functionality.
Our Founder's Message
"How do you describe your training? Underwhelming? Non-existent? If you've said anything other than a "well-oiled machine," then you’re at the RIGHT place if you want to transform ordinary training into a perfected eLearning solution.
Is training actually making a MEASUREABLE difference to you? I often ask this question about my "learning experiences" when I got started in cannabis, I didn't like the answer. That's why we're here, so you will always be a cannabis expert.
In the spirit of "open-sourcing" our eLearning solutions you’ll find our ground-breaking training, industry strategies, and Ed-Tech to learn everything you need (or actually GROW your biz) and much more... without all of those headaches."
