Safety training transfer: The roles of coworkers, supervisors, safety professionals, and felt responsibility
The aim of this study is to identify the influence of social dimensions of the work environment and the employees' felt responsibility on the transfer of safety training. We tested a model in which responses and reactions from safety players such as coworkers, supervisors, and safety professionals are positively related to the transfer of training (TT), through the mediating effect of the employees' felt responsibility and the moderating influence of supervisor support and sanctions. A two-time data collection was implemented among blue-collar employees, all low qualified, from four city...

Comprendre les ressorts des pratiques organisationnelles en matière de prévention des risques psychosociaux par les acteurs de l’entreprise
Une recherche dans l'industrie de la chimie La littérature scientifique fait part d'une individualisation des problèmes de santé psychologique au travail faisant obstacle à l'efficacité de la prévention. À partir d'une méthode mixte, nous cherchons à savoir si cette tendance à l'individualisation se retrouve dans la perception des acteurs de la santé au travail dans l'organisation et la manière dont celle-ci impacte les modes d'intervention. Un questionnaire a été proposé...
Managers’ viewpoint on factors influencing their commitment to safety
An empirical investigation in five Finnish industrial organisations Managers' strong commitment to safety is a key element of a successful safety management, culture and climate. Several studies have approached managers' commitment from the employees' point of view, but research approaching commitment from the managers' viewpoint is scarce. This qualitative study aims to identify the organisational factors that hinder or promote managers' commitment to safety and to suggest organisational measures that can be applied to support managers' commitment to safety. A total of...
Important factors in common among organizations making large improvement in OHS performance
Results of an exploratory multiple case study This exploratory study sought to identify the factors important to large improvement in workplace occupational health and safety (OHS) performance. Mixed methods were used to systematically identify 12 organizations in a workers’ compensation database that had made large and intentional improvement in workplace OHS performance in Ontario, Canada, during 1998–2008 (i.e., “breakthrough change” (BTC) cases). Four of these organizations were selected for in-depth case study (two manufacturers, a grocery and a social agency). Cross...

The dynamics of union responses to migrant workers in Canada
This study examines how five unions in the Canadian province of Alberta responded to a sudden influx of temporary foreign workers (TFWs), as part of Canadian employers' increased use of migrant workers in the mid-2000s. The authors find three types of response to the new TFW members: resistive, facilitative and active. Furthermore, these responses were dynamic and changing over time. The different responses are best explained not by the unions' institutional context, but by internal factors shaping each union's response. Drawing upon the concept of referential unionisms, the study explores...
Social dialogue in micro and small companies
Micro and small companies constitute the backbone of private business in Europe, accounting for nearly 99% of all enterprises, more than half of total employment in the private sector and an even greater proportion of new jobs. Despite their crucial place in the economy, there has been little research on micro and small companies, particularly in terms of the implementation of fundamental workers' rights – such as health and safety at work – and the positive role of social dialogue in striving for good working conditions and industrial relations. Given this knowledge gap, Eurofound...

Triangle of Prevention: a union's experience promoting a systems-of-safety health and safety program
After years of watching company health and safety programs fail to prevent major incidents, injuries, illness, and death in industrial workplaces, union health and safety staff and rank and file activists took up the challenge of creating a union-run alternative program. Named the Triangle of Prevention (TOP), the program successfully engages both local unions and management in incident and near-miss reporting and investigation, root cause analysis, recommending and tracking solutions, and learning and sharing lessons. In all phases, TOP uses a hierarchical, systems-of-safety-based approach to...
The Effectiveness of Joint Health and Safety Committees: A Systematic Review
For this project, the research team set out to conduct a systematic review to determine the factors that aid and impede the effective functioning of Joint Health and Safety Committees (JHSC), and to identify gaps in knowledge in this area. They also held a forum with experts in the field to better understand how to meet the needs of JHSC training. The researchers found that worker empowerment and involvement in the promotion of health and safety is a determinant of lower injury rates. The researchers concluded that it is key for JHSCs to have a clear mandate, and that committee members require...

Behavioural Safety. A briefing for workplace representatives
Behavioural safety is the name given to a number of types of programmes that aim to improve safety by changing the behaviour of workers. It is also called 'behavioural modification' or 'behaviour based safety'. It was been around since the 1930's and is most common in the UK in production industries, in particular the chemicals and energy sectors, but aspects of it are used elsewhere. This briefing is intended to help union representatives respond to any behavioural safety initiatives within their industry or workplace. Source : http://www.tuc.org.uk/h_and_s/tuc-17940-f0.cfm

Pour répondre à cette question, trois chercheurs ont passé en revue les études menées en Europe sur ce sujet. Ils concluent que la présence d'une représentation syndicale va de pair avec un meilleur respect de la réglementation, avec de plus faibles taux d'accidents et de problèmes de santé sur le...
Recherche-action en organisation du travail et santé mentale : récits de pratiques syndicales
Cette recherche-action réalisée auprès de 25 conseillers syndicaux de trois centrales syndicales au Québec montre les difficultés d'articuler une action syndicale destinée à prévenir et à corriger les méfaits d'une organisation du travail devenue pathogène pour la santé mentale ou psychologique des travailleurs et travailleuses. Nos recherches antérieures et celle que l'on présente aujourd'hui vont dans ce sens (Maranda et al., 2007; Rhéaume et al., 2008) : les syndicats tardent...
