address the potential for impairment as part of a hazard assessment,
establish a concise policy and program on the use of any substance that can cause impairment,
determine the actions the workplace will take regarding impairment,
implement accommodation practices where necessary (including for therapeutic needs, substance dependence or disability due to substance dependence), and
create a supportive healthy and safe workplace.
