Prevention and safety

The prevention of work accidents and occupational diseases is everyone's responsibility.
Organizing prevention in your workplace starts with good health and safety management. In this way, you implement measures to ensure sustainable prevention. Sustainable prevention facilitates behavioural change and ownership of good practices.

For their physical or psychological health, workers have the right to work in a safe and healthy workplace.
Trained first aiders must be present in the workplace at all times. The CNESST oversees the First Aid in the Workplace Program. Interested in becoming a first aider? See all the information about the Program.
Consult the accident investigation reports produced by the CNESST. They are used to specify the causes of work accidents and to present preventive measures that could have been put in place to prevent such accidents.
