Rapport sur les maladies et pathologies professionnelles dans l’industrie et les moyens à déployer pour leur élimination
L’industrie. Environ trois millions de personnes travaillent dans le secteur, malgré la destruction massive d’emplois ces dernières décennies. Parmi eux, ces ouvriers, ces invisibles dont le travail est essentiel à répondre aux besoins matériels. Ils, elles sont la catégorie la plus touchée. Bien sûr, on peut contracter des maladies professionnelles dans tous types de postes de travail, y compris ailleurs que dans l’industrie. Mais il faut bien dire que les unités de production industrielle sont des lieux où...
Prendre soin de ceux qui nous soignent
Stratégie nationale d'amélioration de la qualité de vie au travail (France) Les réformes hospitalières successives ont modifié en profondeur l’organisation territoriale de l’offre de soins, le financement, la gouvernance interne, la standardisation des pratiques et la démarche de certification. L’hôpital évolue pour s’adapter aux nouveaux besoins, conditions et modes de prise en charge. Il évolue aussi pour se renforcer dans un contexte budgétaire contraint. Les durées de séjour...
An evaluation of the effects on safety of using safety standards in major hazard industries
To protect people from hazards it is common to use safety standards. There is a general understanding in the literature that such standards will contribute to improved safety. In this paper we discuss this issue when several safety measures are present and safety standards apply to a subset of these alternatives. We show that the use of safety standards does not always give the expected effect on safety, as the implementation of safety standards for some measures can reduce investments in safety measures not affected by the standards. If the restrictions are sufficiently strong, the safety standards...
L’Europe se penche sur la santé et la sécurité des nouveaux métiers verts
Les préoccupations environnementales ont généré une croissance rapide des emplois « verts », mais une évaluation insuffisante des risques posés par ces nouvelles technologies et processus pour la santé et la sécurité des travailleurs. Avec le projet Prévoyance, l'Agence Européenne pour la sécurité et la santé au travail (EU-OSHA) a pour objectif d'identifier les risques nouveaux et émergents de l'économie verte. En effet, les emplois verts sont susceptibles d'engendrer...
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...
Pre-conditioning for success: Characteristics and factors ensuring a safe build for the Olympic Park
This research has looked to identify factors which have contributed to the London 2012 Olympic Park being delivered on time, on budget and with an exemplary health and safety record. Where other research has captured 'how' things were done, this research has explored 'why' and focused on the underpinning human and organisational interactions. The research has tapped in to the close-out and lessons learnt activities for six of the venue and infrastructure projects. In addition interviews were conducted with executives from the Olympic Delivery Authority as client, their Delivery...

How to Energize Your Safety Inspection Process
Are your safety inspections becoming routine? If something is lacking in your safety inspection process, maybe one of these suggestions from Milliken & Co., a two-time America's Safest Company, can help energize employees and improve the process. Common practice for safety inspections entails review of a lengthy list of compliance-slanted audit elements by a small number of safety professionals or other managers. While this process has merit, your overall safety inspection mechanism can be enhanced in order to energize the culture and achieve even greater returns. These five easy launch...
Petites et très petites entreprises : vers une sécurité à grande échelle : Dossier TS
Dans les petites entreprises (moins de 50 salariés), la prévention des accidents du travail et des maladies professionnelles est à la fois perçue comme difficile à mettre en oeuvre, faute d'une organisation dédiée au sein des établissements et source d'inquiétudes diffuses et récurrentes : un accident du travail grave ou une maladie professionnelle avérée sont susceptibles de déstabiliser, voire de mettre en péril, l'ensemble des activités de l'entreprise. Le rôle des partenaires...

Agriculture Sector Action Plan to 2013
Workplace Health and Safety Strategy for New Zealand to 2015 Making a real and sustained reduction in the amount of injury, disease and death in a particular industry is no mean feat – especially when you're talking about one as diverse and complex as agriculture. For a general description of the industry, see Appendix 1. Agricultural work involves a variety of hazards, and countries all over the world have tried to reduce the persistently high rates of fatality, disease and injury that can result. The agriculture sector has one of the highest levels of workplace injury, disease and fatalities...
Santé au travail : approches critiques
Depuis les années 2000, les ouvrages ou articles concernant la santé au travail se sont multipliés. Des événements médiatisés, relayés par des associations de défense des victimes, ont largement contribué à cette évolution : du drame sans fin des victimes de l'amiante à la catastrophe d'AZF, des suicides au travail dans l'industrie automobile ou les télécommunications aux conséquences de l'accident nucléaire de Fukushima… Par la présentation d'enquêtes...
Situational awareness: A different way of assessing risk
When workplace accidents or incidents occur, employers perform investigations to determine the root causes and to prevent these events from happening again. They want to determine if, within their safety managed system, all issues with the potential to cause accidents or incidents have been properly addressed. I believe many employers overlook a very important factor in their investigations: “situational awareness”.

Responder Safety in the Face of Disaster: Lessons Learned from the BP Oil Spill
A paper published in the July issue of the Journal of Occupational and Environmental Medicine examines NIOSH's role in protecting first responders following the 2010 Deepwater Horizon explosion and oil spill in an effort to improve health monitoring and surveillance for workers responding to disasters. The article, “Protecting Workers in Large-Scale Emergency Responses: NIOSH Experience in the Deepwater Horizon Response,” describes NIOSH's activities following the disaster, including its cooperative efforts with the Unified Area Command, OSHA and other federal, state and local...
Don’t Separate Workplace Wellness Initiatives from Safety and Health Programs
Some things are meant to work together. Just as you wouldn't wear only one protective glove and leave the other sitting on the toolbox, incorporating workplace wellness initiatives into safety and health programs may result in a healthier, more productive workplace, new research reveals. “Workplace Health Protection and Promotion: A New Pathway for A Healthier – and Safer – Workforce,” a paper written by a task force from the American College of Occupational and Environmental Medicine (ACOEM) and published in JOEM, suggests that employers can gain a more powerful punch...

Lessons learned: solutions for workplace safety and health
"Every day in the United States, 14 workers die on the job and millions of workers are seriously injured or sickened by doing their work. The harms to workers, the costs to our healthcare system, and the damages to communities are immense. Yet many of these injuries and deaths could have been prevented by applying the lessons learned from our country's history of workplace health and safety. It is a history rich in powerful examples of regulations failing to protect workers as well as policies and practices that enable workers to be healthy and safe. These lessons can be used to create...
