Although the term “green jobs” is fashionable and is in keeping with sustainable development, there’s very little information available on the subject. The goal of a new study published by the IRSST was to:

  • Define the “green economy” in Québec
  • Identify “green jobs”
  • Determine which chemicals and biological agents workers might be exposed to in such jobs
  • Conduct a qualitative assessment of potential risks to workers’ health.
