IRSST - Institut de recherche Robert-Sauvé en santé et en sécurité du travail

Scientific Division

The mandate of the Scientific Division is to define research orientations and programs and have them approved, to ensure the scientific coordination of all the IRSST’s research fields, as well as to follow up on the annual and five-year research plans. The research orientations are defined based on ongoing monitoring of the literature, identification of emerging risks, and statistical surveillance activities, while taking into account the occupational health and safety concerns of workplaces and ensuring that the IRSST’s leadership can be exercised through dissemination of its research results. Finally, the Scientific Division sees to the evaluation of the scientific quality of its research and the application of scientific and ethical policies in research.
