OHS is everyone's business!


The CNESST proposes a toolkit to guarantee that op​erations can resume or continue under the safest and healthiest possible conditions in the context of COVID‑19. It is addressed to employers and workers in all economic sectors to support them in their management of health and safety.

A generic prevention guide and interactive and printable quick references are offered for all work environments. A poster serving as a reminder of the preventive measures for workers’ health in the context of COVID‑19 is also available.

The proposed measures must be adapted by the different sectors to their specific conditions to guarantee that operations can resume or continue under the safest and healthiest possible conditions. Special tools for certain economic sectors are also available.

The tools presented are scalable. Consult this page regularly for new information.

It is important for workers, employers and other players in the workplace to co​operate to have healthy and safe work environments for all! Dialogue and cooperation are essential to achieve this.
