unmatched prevention and protection services
Worker safety is not just a matter of accountability—it must be part of a company’s culture.
Each day, millions of machines—presses, conveyors, drills, machine tools saws…— are used for industrial and manufacturing purposes. These machines have dangerous areas and moving parts that can injure, mutilate and even kill workers who have access to them. This is why it is important to take action and establish a machine safety action plan.
Since 2006, CNESST inspectors have taken a zero-tolerance approach. If there are accessible mobile parts, the employer must immediately fix the problem and can be fined for failing to do so. The CNESST is taking an increasingly hard line on safety issues, with interventions focused on ensuring that dangerous machines are modified.
To secure your machines, our qualified team will identify safety issues, assess risks, take the necessary corrective actions and design and implement the right protective measures.
A protective device must be user friendly and must not interfere with the operator’s work.
Act C-21 An Act to amend the Criminal Code (criminal liability of organizations)
According to Section 217.1 of the Act, “Every one who undertakes, or has the authority, to direct how another person does work or performs a task is under a legal duty to take reasonable steps to prevent bodily harm to that person, or any other person, arising from that work or task.” This provision stipulates that the blame for criminal negligence can be placed squarely on the shoulders of people in positions of authority.
