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

Research Ethics Committee

The IRSST’s Ethics Policy on Research Involving Humans is one of the tools the Institute and its staff have at their disposal to help them appropriately address the various dilemmas and concerns associated with research involving human subjects.

The Institute’s Research Ethics Committee (REC) supports this process, which is fundamentally based on respect for human dignity. The IRSST’s REC has a mandate to assess the ethical validity of research projects requiring the involvement of human subjects conducted by IRSST researchers or by research collaborators who do not have access to such a committee. The projects carried out by external researchers are submitted to the REC in their institution.
