An experience to be shared

Our second note was a natural sequel to the first. But we decided to change the subject. A comment from a company executive with a payroll of just over $ 1,500,000 per year completely "sawed me in two" and I must share this meeting with you. This officer's name is confidential for obvious reasons!

"Pierre, Jean, Jacques" manages with a strong hand a company that belongs to him. He complains that its system costs at CNESST are beginning to weigh heavily on his annual review and financial statement! He finds that his human resources department has difficulty managing workplace injuries that occur in his business.

The commentary of this leader challenges us to the utmost. here it is: "We don't need to change the way we do things at this time, so we don't need to spend time and money to create unnecessary intervention protocols. What we are looking for is to "control our direct costs" in terms of workplace accidents without spending more ".

This is the crux of the problem for many companies with a comparable payroll. For them, managing the problem of work-related injuries on a daily basis is not one of their priorities. But when the consequences of a "disorderly" management affect the monthly invoice (payable premium), they put the blame on the others and especially the CNESST!

Next week we will return to the subject and we will explain what CASST is doing under these circumstances to alleviate the system costs of this type of business.
