Welcome

Blaster (Occupation)

Since 1994, the Commission des normes, de l'équité, de la santé et de la sécurité du travail (CNESST) has delegated management of blaster certification to the Commission de la construction du Québec (CCQ).

To perform blasting or any other work requiring the use of explosives on a construction site, an individual must hold a blaster certificate.

If the construction site falls under the Act Respecting Labour Relations, Vocational Training and Workforce Management in the Construction Industry (Act R-20), the blaster must also hold an occupation competency certificate.
