Workplace health and safety
The indemnification program for work accidents or occupational diseases is fully funded by employers and administered by the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST). The program indemnifies workers whose physical or psychological health has declined due to a work-related event.
To foster a work environment that minimizes risks, the premiums you pay are adjusted based on the financial needs of the program, the size of your organization, your industry and the risks and costs of accidents. A better understanding of the CNESST pricing framework will help you identify how much you spend on workplace health and safety and reduce the amount you pay to the CNESST.
