Being proactive means knowing how to use the various resources that are available. The Association paritaire pour la santé et la sécurité du travail du secteur affaires sociales (ASSTSAS) is definitely a leader in this area. In her conference, ASSTSAS Consultant Julie Bleau wanted to familiarize the participants of the FIQ’s Network of OHS Union Representatives with the ASSTSAS’s services in order to help implement prevention in healthcare institutions.
The ASSTSAS is devoted to the prevention of industrial accidents and occupational diseases and has developed a wide array of useful tools and services for taking concrete action in the field. More specifically, it promotes prevention with the goal of eliminating dangers at the source and prefers to do so by guiding the sector’s clientele in a collaborative framework. The Association offers consulting services and technical support for a variety of OHS issues. To make a request, contact the consultant assigned to your region or institution type.
The ASSTSAS also offers information, training and research and development activities to create healthy and safe workplaces. Moreover, it offers information sheets you can read to learn more about preventing various OHS problems, such as musculoskeletal injuries, falls and violence.
