Workplace safety in the cannabis industry should be a top priority. People who work behind the scenes in the growing cannabis industry are often being exposed to unregulated and extremely unsafe working conditions. It's beyond just being unsafe, it's a human rights violation.

One way to ensure workplace safety in the cannabis industry is for business owners to be prepared for (and avoid) safety hazards such as: inadequate air flow, exposure to toxic pesticides during application, mixing of chemical fertilizers without protective goggles, unlabeled bamboo stakes, flammable solvents and loose CO2 canisters.

If you are planning on running your marijuana production facility for the long term in the cannabis industry, you must create a safe workplace for your workers, provide your employees with adequate safety training and create products that are safe for consumers.

3C's CEO Nic Easley highlights these important points about workplace safety in the cannabis industry along with other helpful information in this video.
