As a result of pressure from RCC that highlighted the economic, environmental, and supply concerns related to the current mask regulations in Quebec for workers, the Commission des normes, de l’équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) announced a program that will offer employers more choice.
The CNESST program will regulate how non-medical disposable or reusable face coverings, that will be permissible to be worn in workplaces, are made. Compliant products will be identifiable by a distinctive attestation mark. The new approved face coverings are scheduled to be available in December 2020.
