Webcast #2 – Occupational Health and Safety Reform in Quebec: Analysis of Bill 59 and Related Considerations

In this presentation, we will discuss the potential challenges that Quebec employers may face should Bill 59 be enacted and will cover new elements introduced by Bill 59 to Quebec’s occupational health and safety (OHS) regime, such as new OHS requirements regarding prevention mechanisms, as well as the establishment of new OHS authorities. We will also take this opportunity to discuss several developments in other jurisdictions that could potentially be introduced in the context of this reform, such as the right to disconnect.
