Occupational health

The Occupational Health and Safety team at the Direction de santé publique of the CISSS de Laval offers a wide range of services to employers and workers depending on your economic sector and the priorities established by the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité au travail (CNESST).

Our occupational health programs include evaluating workplace risks, providing information about health impacts, screening for workplace illnesses (e.g., hearing loss, asbestosis and occupational asthma) and supporting the control or elimination of these risks.

We also provide guidance and advice to employers on emergency care and first-aid services in the event of a workplace injury or poisoning.

For a safe maternity experience

As per the Act Respecting Occupational Health and Safety, any pregnant or breastfeeding worker may request preventive measures to ensure that her position poses no risk to her pregnancy, her unborn child, or the child she is breastfeeding. If this isn’t possible, she may be put on leave or removed from tasks that pose a risk.

To enforce these laws, the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) runs the “For a Safe Maternity Experience” program.

To access this program for employees, you must first see your doctor to describe your position and tasks. The doctor will then consult with a physician in the public occupational health network (RPSAT) in the region to assess whether your position poses a risk.

Companies and businesses are ideal places to encourage adults to adopt healthy habits—as long as they create environments that make it easy for people to do so. 
Anything that lets you improve staff health is an excellent investment. Workplaces that invest in prevention and employee health have been shown to:

  • Increase engagement and productivity
  • Decrease absenteeism and presenteeism
