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

Documentation Centre

IRSST's Documentation Centre responds to requests from IRSST personnel for documentary information in the occupational health and safety (OHS) field. However, the documents are accessible for consultation on site for anyone interested in OSH.

To obtain research support, we invite you to contact the CNESST documentation centre.


We manage our document holdings in partnership with the Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) and joint sector-based associations (JSAs) within the occupational health and safety documentary network.

The publications listed in the catalogue and located at the documentation centres of the CNESST or JSAs participating in the documentary network can be borrowed by contacting directly the documentation centre concerned.


Consultation area

The Informathèque is open to the public, by appointment, during business hours for anyone wishing to consult documents on site.

Interlibrary loans (ILL)

Monographs can be loaned free of charge for a maximum of four weeks to libraries upon request. Reference books, Standards and journals are excluded from the loan service.
