Occupational health and safety (OHS) standards

Working in a safe environment is a priority for Hydro‑Québec. That’s why we’ve implemented several OHS measures.

Learn about the Work Safety Code (WSC)

The Work Safety Code (WSC) is a corporate guideline that establishes the safety principles for the hazards associated with energy sources found in the workplace.

Maintain and update a risk register

Taking charge of occupational health and safety involves identifying and applying the necessary measures to eliminate hazards and mitigate risks that could affect the health and safety of workers on site, while encouraging their participation in OHS management in the field.

The OHS risk register contains the results of this risk analysis process, and enables each supplier to develop and provide Hydro-Québec with a prevention program specific to its activities.

For more information on the SST risk register, visit the CNESST website . The site contains training capsules and assistance tools on OHS management, including the OHS risk register.
