L’Anses présente ses priorités de travail pour 2014

L'Agence présente ce jour son programme de travail pour l'année 2014, élaboré à l'issue d'un processus de consultation avec les ministères et les parties prenantes. Après une année 2013 particulièrement active -bisphénol A, radiofréquences, boissons énergisantes, exposition des travailleurs aux bitumes, etc.-, l'Agence met l'accent en 2014 sur des travaux d'évaluation des risques concernant spécifiquement les enfants, et d'autre part, sur la question des expositions aux pesticides des travailleurs agricoles et des riverains. Au-delà de ces priorités, l'Anses reste mobilisée sur l'ensemble des grands enjeux sanitaires, et publiera durant l'année de nombreux travaux -nanomatériaux, perturbateurs endocriniens, nutrition, etc.

Occupational hazards to the health of professional gardeners

Professional gardening is a broad occupation that involves a wide range of tasks. Gardeners confront an equally wide variety of physical, chemical, biological and psychosocial hazards in their workplace. Consequently, occupational injuries and mortality are unfortunately common. The aim of this brief review is to collate and summarise the main hazards of gardening, their health effects and control measures. The diversity and size of gardeners' occupational exposures to the hazards outlined in this paper highlight some of the underlying causes of their increased risk of occupational injury or death. The risk can be reduced in many cases by ensuring appropriate protective strategies are adopted. Other ways through which the burden of occupational injury and mortality can be minimised are introduced and discussed in this paper.

Z1600-14 - Emergency and continuity management program

This is the second edition of CSA Z1600, Emergency and continuity management program. It supersedes the previous edition published in 2008 under the title, Emergency management and business continuity programs.
This Standard continues to provide requirements for a continual improvement process to develop, implement, maintain, and evaluate an emergency and continuity management program that addresses the functions of prevention and mitigation, preparedness, response, and recovery. This edition is also intended to move organizations toward the objective of resilience - an emerging broader concept that considers the political, economic, social, human, and cultural aspects of society.
Canadian public and private sector stakeholders have an interest in ensuring that emergency and continuity management systems evolve to be consistent and have the potential to be international in scope and application. The development of the first edition standard was written to be consistent with the Government of Canada's An Emergency Management Framework for Canada, and this continues in the second edition. The first edition, initially adapted from NFPA 1600, Standard on Disaster/Emergency Management and Business Continuity Programs, 2007, grew out of the strong commitment of both CSA Group and NFPA to work collaboratively to promote awareness, knowledge, and application of Standards and industry best practices in the community and the workplace. This edition also reflects Canada's participation in the ongoing work of emergency and continuity management-related standards under the umbrella of the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) including ISO/TC 223 - Societal Security.

Santé et sécurité professionnelles dans le secteur de la coiffure

En Europe, le secteur de la coiffure emploie plus d'un million de personnes dans environ 400 000 salons disposant d'un potentiel de 350 millions de consommateurs.
Un nouveau rapport décrit les risques auxquels sont confrontés les coiffeurs et la protection dont ils disposent, y compris un accord cadre négocié par les partenaires sociaux à l'échelle de l'Union européenne, qui vise à établir des normes minimales concernant l'approche de la santé et de la sécurité dans ce secteur dans toute l'Europe.

Global database on occupational safety and health legislation

The database compiles the wealth of legislation in occupational safety and health (OSH) and serves as a snapshot of the current major national legislative requirements around the globe. Constituents and interested parties are provided with a source of reliable and targeted information for making educated decisions. The compilation allows countries to learn from more advanced laws and criteria and it facilitates undertaking comparative research on specific indicators. Policy briefs and fact sheets can be developed based on the available data. LEGOSH can also be used as a tool for monitoring and mapping large-scale trends.
