Health and Safety at Work: A Reform “It Robs Science” says PLQ

Plan moyen de M. Derraji en plein débat.

Official Opposition Classification: Bill 59 drafted by Labor Minister Jean Boulette will need to be drastically amended to gain its support.

The Liberal Party (PLQ) thus demands an accurate scientific study Gender Analysis (ADS) To make it clear that this version does not impose fines on women.

This version, according to liberal employment spokesman Monsieur Derazi Sexist and the science of ridicule, Many unions and trade unions were frustrated during the consultation last week.

The massive 118-page law aims to modernize current law, which is 40 years old.

Consensus against the bill

There is almost no consensus against the bill [durant les consultations], Mr Derazy said in an interview with the Canadian Press on Sunday. Why did the minister choose only a few points of consensus?

According to this version, mainly women employment sectors are not subject to current prevention policies. For example, hospitals are considered to have a lower risk of accidents, with a large number of injuries occurring there each year.

It is safe to say that risk was low in the health sector [le gouvernement] Workers were not contacted, the Liberal MP denied. Will the bill take into account the effects of the epidemic?

According to the PLQ, it is now up to the minister and the Coquista government to demonstrate with serious studies and scientific evidence that the bill does not punish women workers. జ Gender analysis Allows gender differences to be taken into account when planning and delivering care and services.

No scientific data

As a legislator, Mr. Derazi ruled that I did not want to study the bill without a proper portrait of its effects on working women. The minister must ensure that his bill does not affect claims related to women’s professional injuries.

Current law provides for four main prevention policies: the Health and Safety Committee, the health-specific health program to be established, the prevention program and the prevention representative.

According to the version, the owners are divided according to their size and between low, moderate and high risk levels, the prevention mechanisms are tailored to each.

However, to establish the level of risk, we rely on compensation data from the Commission des standards, de elnergy, de la Sante et de la Sacurite du Travel (CNEST), and not on scientific studies, which many denies.

Where is the scientific data? Why aren’t we based on science?

Moncef Derazi, Liberal Representative for Employment

In addition, according to the bill, physicians skilled in the work of public health departments (DSPs) cannot interfere in the workplace unless the employer is consulted.

Is it normal after all we have lived to dismiss the expertise of public health physicians? The Liberal spokesman was angry.

Mr Deraji wondered if it was the officials or the Prime Minister’s Office who piloted the bill, rather than the minister. Who have a reputation for doing things right.

Everyone agrees to modernize the law, but no one knows how to modernize, He concluded.

Bill 59 aims to reduce compensation costs for those affected by industrial accidents.

CNESST paid a total of 22 2.22 billion benefits in 2018. It then admitted 103,406 occupational injuries and recorded 226 deaths. Every day 251 workers are injured.

According to CNESST data, mental injuries have increased by 67% in the last ten years.
