Workplace Prevention

The Specialized Human Resources Services Team | December 10, 2020
Workplace Prevention is an important element in the success of sound health and safety management in your company.

Lussier Dale Parizeau offers you solutions that favour a proactive approach by eliminating hazards at the source for the health, safety and integrity of your employees. We have a solid expertise in occupational health and safety and, amongst others, in the field of construction. Our risk prevention programs make it possible to implement solutions that solicit the participation of employers and employees, that meet and comply with all legal requirements, and that are within the means and resources of the company.

Above all, occupational health and safety management requires a specific action plan and an approach adapted to your needs for the implementation of various elements of prevention.

 

Prevention Program: Our integrated tools will allow you to improve
your practices through the implementation of preventive measures
and will allow you to promote the prevention of work accidents and
occupational diseases among your staff. Our approach is based on
solutions that aim at collaboration between the parties.

 

 

Prevention Audit: The Prevention Audit takes place as a visit to the
worksite or the company to assess health and safety practices, make a diagnosis and issue recommendations. The site or company visit also makes it possible to ensure that safe methods are being applied to prevent workplace accidents.

 

 

Safety break and Occupational Health and Safety (OHS)
Committee: The primary objective of a safety break is to make your
workers aware of the various hazards to which they could be exposed to during the course of their work.

 

 

Inspection of Equipment and Personal Protective Equipment
(PPE): Improper use of PPE or damaged equipment is a major cause of workplace accidents. We can inspect your equipment and provide you with appropriate recommendations.

 

 

Intervention and Infringement Report from the Commission
des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail
(CNESST): Health and safety advisors and our specialized legal counsel will assist you in analyzing and interpreting the CNESST report and may suggest a response and corrective action approach.

 

 

Preventive Sheet and Work Procedure: Any task that presents a risk must be accompanied by a work procedure that describes the risks and preventive measures. We can assist you in the development of these documents, whether for preventive sheets or work policies and procedures.

 

As an employer, you have an obligation to exercise due diligence through the exercise of three duties: foresight, efficiency and authority. Due diligence is one of the defences that an employer has when facing criminal prosecution in matters of occupational health and safety. Thus, sound due diligence is exercised by putting elements demonstrating that you have fulfilled your duties of foresight, efficiency and authority within your company into place.

All of the elements applied to each of the due diligence duties will save you both time and money, as they will allow you to defend yourself in the event of a lawsuit.

We invite you to contact us if you have any questions regarding workplace prevention.
