Due to the rapid spread of COVID-19, and to ensure the health and safety of its employees and its entire network, the IRSST has implemented exceptional measures.
Bertrand Galy holds an engineering diploma from the École Spéciale des Travaux Publics, du Bâtiment et de l'Industrie (ESTP Paris) with a speciality in Public Works. After obtaining a master’s degree in civil engineering and a Ph.D. from Montréal’s École de technologie supérieure (ÉTS), his interests turned to occupational health and safety. He has been a researcher at the IRSST since the fall of 2013 in the Mechanical and Physical Risk Prevention field. Mr. Galy’s many research interests include protection against falls from heights, safety of trenches and excavations, safety of mine hoists (control and monitoring systems and parachutes), and seismic vulnerability of structures (particularly, soil-structure interaction problems). He has also been a course lecturer in structural analysis at the ÉTS since the summer of 2010.
