The Research Team in Work Safety (ÉREST) has a dual mission : firstly, to develop tools to protect workers from occupational diseases and accidental death and injury, and secondly, to design safer production systems and equipment.

The trend in occupational safety is to develop a risk management culture based on a systemic approach. To meet these new challenges, it is crucial that prevention stakeholders are equipped with skills through fundamental and applied research, for example.

To that end, ÉREST’s multidisciplinary team focuses its research activities on noise, vibrations, protective equipment, tool safety, industrial machines and procedures, air quality and pollutant emissions, and musculoskeletal injuries.
