As an employer, you play an important role in preventing workplace injuries and promoting a safe and healthy workplace. In fact, in Quebec, under the Act Respecting Occupational Health and Safety (AOHS) and the Act respecting industrial accident and occupational diseases (AIAOD) as well as their various regulations, you have a legal obligation to properly inform, instruct and supervise your employees and to do everything you reasonably can to protect them.

We can never stress this enough: registering with the "Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail" (CNESST) is not an option!
