Une forme de gestion désincarnée de l’activité
L'exemple d'une formation en santé et sécurité du travail destinée aux préposés aux bénéficiaires au Québec Cet article a pour objectif d'illustrer les limites d'un mode de gestion désincarné de l'activité réelle de travail. Nous prenons l'exemple d'un mode de gestion « top-down » d'une formation en santé au travail destinée aux préposés aux bénéficiaires travaillant dans les organisations gériatriques au Québec...
Une démarche paritaire de prévention pour contrer les effets du travail émotionnellement exigeant dans les centres jeunesse
Certains secteurs d'activité sont particulièrement touchés par des problèmes qui affectent la santé et la sécurité des travailleurs. C'est le cas, entre autres, des centres jeunesse où le travail est généralement caractérisé par une demande émotionnelle élevée, attribuable aux contacts fréquents avec des enfants et des familles en crise, et par le manque de ressources nécessaires pour gérer cette demande émotionnelle. On reconnaît d'ailleurs de plus...
Health and safety in schools
Exploring the perceptions of HSE's communications to promote and support sensible risk management This research was commissioned to explore the viewpoints of school staff responsible for managing day-to-day health and safety in schools. This study explored what guidance schools use to support their management of health and safety and, in particular, examined how HSE's education-specific materials were used. The study found that HSE is not the primary source of information and guidance used by the schools. Instead, the primary sources are the Local Authorities (LAs) or other bought-in health...
Worker participation practices: a review of EU-OSHA case studies : literature review
U-OSHA publishes case studies of good practices to prevent workplace risks. The cases are analysed and effective worker participation consistently appears as a basic requirement for the successful identification of problems and implementation of practical solutions, regardless of the size or type of workplace or type of problem. Many of the cases describe how worker participation took place in practice and its role in introducing successful prevention measures. This report compiles these worker participation components to provide an overview of how worker participation featured in the various cases...
Review of workplace innovation and its relation with occupational safety and health
This report provides evidence that high levels of occupational safety and health (OSH) performance (low accident rates and absenteeism, OSH culture) correlate with workplace innovation and human performance. Workplace innovations are strategy induced and participatory adopted changes in an organisation’s practice of managing, organising and deploying human and non-human resources that lead to simultaneously improved organisational performance and improved quality of working life.

Using Social Marketing to Address Barriers and Motivators to Agricultural Safety and Health Best Practices
Social marketing is an intervention development strategy that pays considerable attention to barriers to and motivators for behavioral change or adoption of recommended behaviors. Barriers are obstacles that prevent individuals from changing or adopting behaviors and are often referred to as the “cons” or “costs” of doing something. Motivators, on the other hand, are factors that encourage individuals to change or adopt behaviors and are often referred to as the “pros,” “benefits,” or “influencing factors” of doing something. Importantly...
Innovative solutions to safety and health risks in the construction, healthcare and HORECA sectors
One conclusion from the EU-OSHA economic incentives project is that incentives schemes should not only reward past results of good OSH management (such as accident numbers in experience rating), but should also reward specific prevention efforts that aim to reduce future accidents and ill-health. Experts from the economic incentives project therefore suggested the development of compilations of innovative and evidence-based preventive solutions, starting with the three sectors construction, health care and HORECA (hotels, restaurants, catering). The preventive measures from these compilations are...
Démarche d'amélioration des conditions de travail dans une PMI de sous-traitance automobile
Mener une démarche de prévention dans les petites et moyennes entreprises présente des difficultés, liées notamment à la faiblesse des moyens dont elles disposent. L'auteur montre dans cet article comment les préventeurs peuvent tirer parti de cette taille modeste pour engager un dialogue entre les différents niveaux hiérarchiques. L'intervention présentée porte sur un collectif de 27 salariés d'une PMI de sous-traitance automobile. En partant du ressenti des salariés sur différents aspects...
A commentary on routes to competence in the construction sector – RR877
The health and safety record of the UK construction sector is a prime focus of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE), combining as it does high fatality and injury rates with relatively high rates of work-related ill-health. Persuasive proof of the link between competence and health and safety is difficult to demonstrate but, nevertheless, 'competence' has been central to improving the sector's health and safety performance since the late 1980s. The key questions of this research are whether current routes to competence - qualifications (both work-based and college-based), short courses...
Healthy workplaces Milton Keynes pilot
Evaluation findings The Healthy Workplaces Milton Keynes (HWMK) pilot was a partnership between the Health and Safety Executive and Milton Keynes Council designed to test a modified version of the Workplace Health Connect model of delivering free advice and support on occupational health, safety, absence and return-to-work issues (via HSE and Local Authority staff) to small and medium-sized enterprises in Milton Keynes. The pilot ran from February 2008 until March 2009. Source : http://news.hse.gov.uk/2010/06/28/rr809-healthy-workplaces-milton-keynes-pilot-evaluation-findings/
Labour inspectorates' strategic planning on safety and health at work
Labour inspectorates play a central role in promoting safety and health at work and are increasingly focusing their attention on the anticipation, definition and prevention of emerging risks. Through the work of labour inspectors, the inspectorates have access to a unique source of data that helps inform their strategic planning in three main areas: research, inspection and awareness-raising. This report presents an overview of the principal OSH-related priorities established by national labour inspectorates and provides information on how these priorities are set. The information contained in...

Working Safe in Aboriginal Communities
Aboriginal enterprises work in a unique political, social and economic context. This research project was designed to assess how that unique context influences the development and implementation of workplace injury prevention programs in Aboriginal enterprises. http://www.worksafebc.com/contact_us/research/research_results/res_60_10_480.asp
Effectiveness and implementation of health and safety programs in small enterprises: A systematic review of quantitative and qualitative literature
Small businesses have unique challenges with occupational health and safety (OHS). Overall, workers in a small business have a higher risk of workplace injury than workers in large firms, yet both workers and owners may not have a sense of this increased risk. Small businesses are more likely to face financial instability than larger firms. Together, these situations create a challenge in understanding and managing the risk of workplace accidents. This systematic review was conducted to provide an understanding of and guidance on how to implement OHS in small businesses, and to identify effective...
