An Act to modernize the occupational health and safety regime

Major changes have modernized the legal framework for occupational health and safety. The Act to modernize the occupational health and safety system was assented to on October 6, 2021 by the National Assembly after months of debate and demands reflecting the interests of various stakeholders: workers, employers, health professionals, etc. Some measures have already come into force. Others will be implemented gradually in the months and years to come. The questions are already numerous: Who will have to set up a health and safety committee? What will be the power of the CNESST in matters of return to work? Is the employer's right to cost sharing and transfer affected? What occupational injuries will be easier for workers to prove? This workshop provides a first overview of the main changes and their impact on the daily life of employers. In order to maintain the friendly approach that characterizes our training sessions, we will limit registration to 20 participants. This workshop will be offered remotely.
