The Connection Between Workplace Safety and Well-being in the Cannabis Industry Webinar
This webinar will discuss the WORK AND WELL-BEING IN THE COLORADO CANNABIS INDUSTRY project that was conducted by researchers at Colorado State University and the Center for Health, Work & Environment at the Colorado School of Public Health in conjunction with partners in the Colorado cannabis industry. The purpose of this project was to conduct a survey about work-related health, stress, and well-being among workers in the cannabis industry of Colorado.
The researchers collected survey data from cannabis industry workers employed in the state of Colorado (with a majority of survey participants working in the Front Range) to develop a report to give back to the industry with recommendations for best practices, training, and health and safety policies.
The researchers asked cannabis industry workers various questions about their current health and safety training programs, experiences at work, general health and well-being, feelings of work stress, and personal cannabis and tobacco use, among others. The results of this report and others will be discussed to provide recommendations and guidance for cannabis worker safety and training.
