Evolving cannabis research and regulations may impact the future of work in several ways, as highlighted in a recent NIOSH blog, Cannabis and Work: Implications, Impairment, and the Need for Further Research.
Join the NIOSH Total Worker Health ® Program and Center for Workers’ Compensation Studies on January 29th for a 60-minute webinar where workers’ compensation (WC) system thought leaders will further discuss the current status and future directions of related WC cannabis topics:
• How public policy guides the use of cannabis in the treatment of work injuries.
• Research on potential uses in workers’ compensation.
• Impact of cannabis use on workplace safety and health and compensability.
Speakers will include Dr. John Howard (NIOSH), Jennifer Wolf (International Association of Industrial Accident Boards and Commissions, IAIABC), Raji Chadarevian (National Council on Compensation Insurance, NCCI), and John Ruser (Workers Compensation Research Institute, WCRI).
The webinar will be moderated by Jamie Osborne (NIOSH) and Steve Wurzelbacher (NIOSH).
