Every year, immigrant workers enter Québec’s labour force, thus changing the demographic and ethnocultural composition of workplaces. In order to better understand the employment characteristics of immigrants that could have implications for preventing occupational injuries, the researchers from the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) analyzed quantitative studies that documented the distinctive features of work performed by immigrants and the risks to their health and safety. The authors also analyzed the content of population surveys that could provide information on the risks to the OHS of immigrant workers.
To support the members of occupational health and safety committees, purchasers and workers, the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) has published a pamphlet entitled How to Choose Slip-resistant Occupational Footwear.
The Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail (IRSST) awarded the IRSST prize for the best scientific article published in the last six years in prevention of industrial accidents, occupational diseases and rehabilitation of affected workers.
