What Is Cnesst?
The Period to Contest the Verdict of a Decision on Workplace Hazardous Materials Information System
CNESST administers occupational safety and health plans for the province. It works like a public insurer for employers and workers and at the same time oversees prevention measures implemented at the workplace. CNESST is to help accident victims with financial support and help them return to work.
It also helps employers by helping them create a hazard free workplace. CNESST is responsible for the enforcement of two laws related to occupational safety and health. The system in place for the exchange of information related to hazardous materials is called the workplace hazardous materials information system, or WHMIS.
It is designed according to the laws of the provinces. It is a tool that focuses on preventing accidents. The period to contest the verdict is ten days if the decision was an inspection or if the worker refused to reassign work to a breastfeeding or pregnant worker.
The CNESST will listen to arguments and give its verdict during the contest. It is possible that the CNESST will overrule the decisions that were made before. If a worker is still dissatisfied, they have 45 days to contest it with the Commission des Lesions Professionnelles.
Occupational Safety and Health Inspectors
If a company has a minimum of one worker, then it has to register with theCSST after the first worker is hired, and it should happen within fourteen days of the first hiring. Workers and employers are supposed to take care of occupational safety and health. The inspectors from theCSST make sure that all laws are followed at work sites.
If someone makes a complaint or if there is a major industrial accident, the inspector needs to intervene. An inspector can visit your workplace for other purposes, like for supporting workers and employers in prevention efforts, or for general inspections, if someone in the workforce uses his rights and refuses to work. An inspector is often called upon to help resolve disputes between prevention representative and employer or between safety and health committee members.
Workers can ask for intervention from the regional office ofCSST. If an inspector is required to close down a business, they can issue a notice for correction. If regulations are broken or someone refuses to comply with an order, the person can be fined.
Workers can refuse work if they feel in danger. If the work conditions are considered to be normal for the kind of work being performed, workers will not be allowed to exercise the right. After exercising their right of refusal, a worker should inform their employer and give reasons.
