Are you faced with a waiver or requirement from a CNESST inspector for noise exposure or occupational deafness? This solution is for you. Our experts will analyze the history of noises and interventions that have taken place in your company. Once we have a clear picture of the situation, we will meet with you and the inspector to clarify any requirements and desired results.

We then determine the action plan to respond to it adequately. Depending on the need, we may conduct assessments to disprove or confirm and resolve the inspector’s findings. In any case, we will keep you informed about your options and their financial implications to make informed decisions.

Have you received a rule on a case’s eligibility for occupational deafness in your company? Did the CNESST inform you that you are responsible for this type of condition of one of your former employees? Consult us to know more about the consequences, costs and future financial impacts. You will be able to take the right actions to dispute this case or not.

This solution consists primarily of:

  • Studying the employee’s work and exposure, as well as his/her CNESST report

  • Calculating the real impact on CNESST premium.

  • Determine the risks and assess future claims based on your history.

  • Put forward possible alternatives and their costs, financial implications and risk (ex: disputes on eligibility and cost-sharing, responding to a claim due to its low financial impact and future consequences, etc.).

If you wish to dispute the decision, please be aware that we can represent you before the authorities. (CNESST, TAT)
