Bill 59 In Supply Chains

 

Quebec’s workplace safety regulations were pending overhaul for almost four decades, until Quebec Labor Minister John Boulet introduced ‘Bill 59’ on October 27, 2020, officially referred to as the “Act to Modernize the Occupational Health and Safety Regime”.

This new bill is largely being seen as a modern rendition of the ‘Act Respecting Occupational Health and Safety (AOHS)’ and the ‘Act Respecting Industrial Accidents and Occupational Disease (AIAOD)’ – a work-oriented injury and illness reparation plan. Both laws were enacted way back in 1979 and 1985 respectively and they were not extensively reviewed since their approval.

The mitigation of workplace risks is the core objective of this new bill.

This white paper will explore: 

  • Key legal modifications and proposed additions
  • Specific areas for businesses to review 
  • How technology supports the reform
