La stratégie allemande face au stress et aux risques psychosociaux

Le stress est en passe de devenir le problème de santé au travail n°1 en Allemagne. Face à cette situation, les partenaires sociaux négocient, non sans difficultés. Le "Bilan 2012 des conditions de travail" publié récemment par les services du ministère du Travail français (DGT) permet d'en savoir plus sur la façon dont nos voisins font face à la montée des risques psychosociaux.

Violence au travail

Sondage dans trois secteurs professionnels
Entre janvier 2011 et octobre 2012, l'équipe a mené une étude réalisée sous la forme d'un sondage Internet auprès de 2889 travailleurs des secteurs des affaires municipales, des affaires provinciales et de la santé et des services sociaux. Les travailleurs de ces trois secteurs professionnels courent un risque particulièrement élevé d'être victimes ou témoins d'actes de violence grave.
Le sondage portait sur les actes de violence dont les travailleurs auraient pu être victimes ou témoins au cours des 12 mois précédents et sur leurs conséquences. Il examinait également les perceptions des travailleurs face à la violence et au soutien reçu au travail pour contrer cette réalité.

Mining Publication

Incorporating Judgment and Decisionmaking into Quarterly Mine Escape Training Based on a Mine Fire Scenario
The major coal mine disasters of 2006 raised a number of issues about mine emergency preparedness and response. These included concerns about miners' judgment and decisionmaking skills under the stress of a mine escape and miners' familiarity with escape procedures. In response, researchers from the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) sought to learn how mines are incorporating judgment and decisionmaking skills into mine escape training. They took an in-depth look at previous research on judgment and decisionmaking in self-rescue and escape training. They also conducted interviews with safety and training personnel from six underground coal operations to understand how mine operators are conducting mandatory quarterly escape training. This report discusses findings from these interviews, presents an analysis of previous research on judgment and decisionmaking in self-rescue and escape, and offers guidance to trainers on how to build judgment and decisionmaking into quarterly training drills.

Young people and temporary employment in Europe

Since the onset of the economic and financial crisis in 2008, the number of young people in employment across the European Union has declined considerably. By mid-2013, the unemployment rate among people aged 24 and under had increased to over 23%. A large number of workers in this age group are employed on temporary rather than permanent contracts (42% compared to just 10% of workers aged 25–64). While temporary or fixed-term contracts can be a stepping stone in the transition from education into work, they can also trap young people in insecure jobs.

Non-robbery-related occupational homicides in the retail industry, 2003-2008

BACKGROUND: The purpose of this study was to examine non-robbery-related occupational homicides in the retail industry from 2003 to 2008.
METHODS: Data were abstracted from the Census of Fatal Occupational Injuries. Motive (robbery- or non-robbery-related) and workplace violence (WPV) typology (Type I-IV) were assigned using narrative text fields. Non-robbery-related homicide rates were calculated and compared among WPV types, demographic characteristics, and occupation.
RESULTS: Twenty-eight percent of homicides that occurred in the retail industry were non-robbery-related. The leading event associated with non-robbery-related homicides was Type II (perpetrated by customers) (34%), followed by Type IV (perpetrated by personal relationship) (31%). The majority of homicides were due to arguments (50%). Security guards and workers in drinking establishments had the highest homicide rates per 100,000 workers (14.3 and 6.0, respectively).
CONCLUSIONS: Non-robbery-related homicides comprised a meaningful proportion of workplace homicides in the retail industry. Research is needed to develop strategies to prevent non-robbery-related homicides specifically.
