Mining Companies
Tools for the Safe Integration of New Workers

Did you know that during their first few months on the job, new workers are at much greater risk of sustaining a compensated time-loss injury than experienced workers? By virtue of its activities, the Qu̩bec mining industry faces its own particular challenges when it comes to the safe integration of new workers.
Protecting against Falls from Heights
How to Design a Horizontal Lifeline System

Falls from heights are still a major cause of workplace accidents. Too often, workers don??t use lifelines because there is no anchor point available, or because they find that fixed anchor points limit their movements too much. This limitation can be overcome, however, with the use of a horizontal lifeline system.

Hands-On Experimentation with Risk Estimation Parameters and Tools

From 1999 to 2003, 64,000 accidents and 100 deaths were determined to be attributable to hazardous machines in Qu̩bec industries. Although the tools and methods for estimating the risks associated with this equipment offer a first-line prevention strategy, an IRSST study revealed that they come in very different forms and that a number of their characteristics can have a significant influence on the estimated level of risk.
