The Network of professional massage therapists of Quebec brings together more than 7,500 massage therapists
The Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) has created a health standards guide for the therapeutic care sector that includes massage therapy, kinesitherapy, and orthotherapy. They have also created several fact sheets, documents, and reminders to support workers in resuming activities in the most secure and safe conditions possible. We invite you to consult them.
In the CNESST FAQ section, it says that “as stipulated in section 51 of the Act respecting occupational health and safety (AOHS), every employer must take the necessary measures to protect the health and ensure the safety and physical well-being of his worker.”
Employers must ensure that their employees have the necessary personal protective equipment, in accordance with INSPQ guidelines and government authorities, to perform their work safely.
The employer must also properly inform its employees about the procedures in place and ensure that they are understood.
