Montreal, April 17, 2019 – At the Gala Excellence ÉTS of the École de technologie supérieure, held on April 8, the Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et sécurité du travail (IRSST) was named Partenaire d’excellence en recherche-innovation [outstanding innovation-research partner].
This honour underscores the exceptional collaboration between the IRSST and the ÉTS in joint research projects. For a number of years now, the two institutions have frequently collaborated on a variety of major projects, such as the Development of a range of comfort indices for earplugs to improve hearing protection for workers project, whose importance was underscored at the gala. A total of 11 joint research projects are currently being carried out by the ÉTS and the IRSST.
“The IRSST is proud to be among the ÉTS’ recurring partners. There is no question but that the collaboration between the two organizations’ researchers moves occupational health and safety research forward, while also expanding the Institute’s reach,” affirmed Marie Larue, president and CEO of the IRSST. In addition to the ÉTS, the IRSST collaborates with numerous universities and research centres in Québec, elsewhere in Canada and around the world.
The Institute’s researchers and those it funds conduct studies and help advance knowledge in matters related to the prevention of industrial accidents and occupational diseases and the rehabilitation of the affected workers.
