Québec - Modifications réglementaires au Code de sécurité pour les travaux de construction
Le 3 juillet dernier, des changements réglementaires ont été apportés au Code de sécurité pour les travaux de la construction (CSTC). Ces changements impacteront prochainement le cours Santé et sécurité générale sur les chantiers de construction (SSGCC). Source:
Regulated working at heights training works and needed: studies
Special Report Two recently released Ontario studies demonstrate why mandatory, standardized working at heights training is so critical to worker well-being. One study undertaken by the Institute for Work & Health (IWH) conducted an evaluation of the impact the province's working at heights training standard had on workers and their work sites. A second and earlier probe prepared by the Ministry of Labour (MOL) for the Chief Prevention Officer undertook root cause analysis of worker deaths from falls from heights. Significant results from WAH training standard The IWH evaluation consisted...
Oeuvrer ensemble pour promouvoir un milieu de travail sûr et salubre
La Commission d'experts pour l'application des conventions et recommandations publie une étude d'ensemble sur les instruments de sécurité et de santé au travail relatifs au cadre promotionnel, à la construction, aux mines et à l'agriculture. Après un aperçu du contexte historique et des objectifs des instruments sélectionnés (chapitre I), la présente étude passe en revue les politiques, systèmes et programmes nationaux de SST et met en évidence l'importance capitale des données...
Manutention sécuritaire des dispositfs de signalisation lors de travaux routiers

The effectiveness of HSE’s regulatory approach: The construction example
This project has examined the effectiveness HSE’s approach to regulation of the construction sector since 2001. HSE provided a catalyst for change – utilising its unique information on the industry and expertise in understanding reasonably practicable control to support risk creators in their control of these risks. HSE worked through the supply chain by engaging and acting in partnership with those able to bring about widespread change - such as company directors, or strategic bodies focused on particular interest groups r sectors. New broader intervention approaches were designed...
Délimitation d'un chantier de construction et identification du maître d'oeuvre
Les principales questions concernant la délimitation d'un chantier de construction et l'identification du maître d'œuvre trouvent réponse dans cette brochure. Il permet aux intervenants du secteur de la construction d'identifier plus rapidement celui qui sera responsable d'assurer la santé, la sécurité et l'intégrité physique des travailleurs sur le chantier.

Disparity between construction safety standards
A global analysis Construction workers are often exposed to the inherent risks associated with working conditions on construction sites. Safety standards of various countries prescribe a variety of mechanical safeguards and procedures to ensure that work is performed safely, but it is evident from the available statistical data on construction safety standards that there is no globally-standardized system of regulations nor is there a common definition for the computation of injury/fatality rates. The components that form these statistics vary from country to country in many aspects, including...
Analysis of the safety conditions of scaffolding on construction sites
This paper presents the results of a study whose aim was to analyse the safety conditions of supported scaffolds (i.e., ground supported scaffolding). In 2007 the authors examined the scaffolding erected on 105 building sites in Spain. The study provides a qualitative assessment of the safety conditions of bracings, anchor ties, toe-boards, guardrails, ladders, struts, long beams, cross beams, platforms, supports, etc. In the European Union there are no legal requirements for the manufacturers of supported scaffolds, but there are some regulations on the use of this type of scaffolding on construction...
Prévention des risques de chutes de hauteur
Face aux situations dangereuses posées par le travail en hauteur, une démarche de prévention adaptée s'impose. Cette nouvelle brochure réalisée conjointement par l'INRS et l'OPPBTP (référence ED 6110) fait le point sur cette problématique. Son objectif : aider les entreprises à faire leur choix parmi les équipements de protection disponibles. Source :
Approved Code of Practice for Load-Lifting Rigging
This Approved Code of Practice (the Code) has been prepared by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment in conjunction with representatives of the industries and stakeholders concerned. Its purpose is to support the requirements of the Health and Safety in Employment Regulations 1995 in relation to load-lifting rigging activities. It contains a number of diagrams and tables that are essential for safe load-lifting rigging work and chain/strop maintenance. The Code provides recommendations and procedures for safe practice while carrying out lifting and rigging work in industry. In an...
Une norme ISO aidera à gérer le risque d'exposition au radon
Une nouvelle norme ISO en plusieurs parties permettra d'évaluer l'exposition aux rayonnements de sources de radioactivité d’origine naturelle dans l'environnement et les bâtiments, en particulier le radon. Ce gaz est considéré comme la deuxième cause de cancer pulmonaire après le tabagisme dans de nombreux pays. L'Organisation mondiale de la Santé (OMS) estime que, dans le monde entier, la proportion des cancers des poumons qui lui est imputable est comprise entre 3 % et 14 % Source :
Ladder Use in Construction Guideline
Workers on construction sites continue to fall from ladders and become critically injured or killed. The Provincial Labour-Management Health and Safety Committee (PLMHSC) has prepared a guideline on safe ladder use in construction to assist workplace parties in understanding their obligations under the OHSA and its regulations. The Ministry of Labour views the guideline as a recommended set of industry best practices that may be used as part of an employer’s health and safety program. Source :
Best Practice Guidelines for Working on Roofs
The guidelines provide practical guidance to employers, contractors, employees, designers, principals, persons who control a place of work, and architects who are engaged in work associated with roofing. The guidelines apply to a wide range of work situations where workers are placed in a position from which falls are possible. These situations include new roof installations, re-roofing, repairs and maintenance work on roofs. Importance is placed on managing the hazards associated with working on roofs by identifying hazards through planning, assessing, and controlling the hazards. This includes...
ANSI Approves New Safety Standards for Construction, Demolition
The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) announced recently that the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) has approved two new ASSE A10 construction and demolition standards aimed at enhancing safety. The two new standards are the ANSI/ASSE A10.1-2011 Pre-Project and Pre-Task Safety and Health Planning for Construction and Demolition Operations and the ANSI/ASSE A10.26-2011 Emergency Procedures for Construction and Demolition Sites.

ANSI approves updated safety standard for multi-employer construction sites
The American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) says the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) recently approved the updated ANSI/ASSE A10.33-2011 standard, Safety and Health Program Requirements for Multi-Employer Projects. The A10.33-2011 standard sets up the minimum elements and activities of a program that defines the duties and responsibilities of construction employers working on a project where multiple employers are or will be engaged in the common undertaking to complete a construction project. This standard is a basis for use as a minimum safety and health guideline for a program...
Ergonomics, staff safety form part of new standard for hospital design
The first standard ever developed in Canada for the design and construction of new hospitals and other medical facilities could mark a major advance in the working conditions of doctors, nurses and support staff. The standard, launched by CSA Standards, is based on the idea that better planning, design and construction can improve safety and care for both patients and hospital staff, and make hospitals more cost effective. The standard covers new hospitals, doctors’ and dentists’ offices and clinics. “Ultimately, bad hospital design can kill,” said Bonnie Rose, president...
