Occupational Health and Safety Prizes (CNESST)
Are you concerned with preventing work-related injuries? Explain your vision.
The Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) awards two cash prizes of $2000, one to a graduating student enrolled in vocational training and the other to a graduating student enrolled in technical training, who have demonstrated an interest in occupational health and safety, and want to improve practices in their chosen occupation or trade.
Candidates for this prize must have completed their program of study before June 30, 2019.
In addition to the answers to the general questions, the candidate’s application package must include the answers to the following questions (a maximum of one page):
- In your opinion, what are the principal health and safety risks in your occupation or profession? What actions will you take to protect yourself from those risks?
- If, while working in your occupation or profession, you are in a new work environment and are given a hazardous task to complete, what would you do to ensure your health and safety?
- How do you think you can contribute to the improvement of health and safety procedures in the occupation or profession you have chosen?
