May 3: Study Assesses Health Risks of ‘Green Jobs’

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.
