Accidents at work

The University is subject to the Quebec Act respecting Industrial Accidents and Occupational Diseases, which provides that all accidents sustained by employees during working hours, must be reported to the Commission de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CSST).

In all cases, the supervisor or head of the unit/department must complete the McGill University Accident, Incident and Occupational Disease Report form and return it to Environmental Health and Safety, 3610 McTavish Street, 4th Floor, Montreal (Quebec) H3A 1Y2 CANADA (Telephone 514.398.4563 Fax 514.398.8047)

It is important to note that the above-mentioned form must be completed in its entirety and duly signed by the employee to enable Human Resources to initiate the processing of the CSST claim.
