Abstract Because of recent changes to the Regulations concerning occupational safety and health in Quebec (Règlement sur la santé et la sécurité du travail - RSST, see CIS 02-1506), the IRSST had to update the guide for the adjustment of permissible exposure values for unusual work schedules, as well as the computer-based tool allowing its application. This technical guide includes recent toxicological knowledge on the substances concerned by the regulatory changes and allows determining the pathology codes and adjustment categories for the new substances included in the RSST.
