Les métiers du sport - Dossier
Quand la pratique du sport quitte la sphère du loisir pour pénétrer le monde professionnel, le corps devient le premier outil du travailleur. Une particularité qui a pour conséquence de placer l'individu au centre des actions de prévention des risques. Cependant, les démarches purement individuelles sont insuffisantes. Même pour ces activités, la dimension collective de la prévention ne doit pas être négligée. Elle est possible en agissant sur l'environnement, le matériel ou les règles...

Model of safety inspection

A survey extended to two additional safety inspection domains supported the central features of the task description including generalist assignment of safety inspectors, high complexity, consecutive use of checklists, risk-informed decision making, and lack of performance feedback.

New Working Alone video!
If you’ve been reading the Actsafe Newsletter recently, you may have noticed that we’ve run a few pieces on workers working alone or in isolation. It’s something that’s common in both film and performing arts and can have serious consequences if a worker becomes sick or injured and there’s no one available to check in on them. To help address the issue, we’ve produced a five minute video on Working Alone. Source :

Gut Feeling Can Prevent Accidents
A Pat Benatar benefit concert scheduled for Friday, June 21, 2013 was cancelled at the bequest of her stage crew. Upon arrival to the venue, an outdoor covered arena in Iverness, Florida, the crew was presented with a stage platform that they did not think was robust enough for the show. Rather than risk the potential for a structural collapse, they requested that the promoter have the stage structure inspected and reinforced. A local engineer was brought-in to certify the stage, but the caveats included with the inspection did not satisfy them in time to mount the show. Source : http://theatresafetyblog...

Load-out ends tragically for stage worker in Milan, Italy
June 19, 2:40 AM, Milan, Italy - 34 year-old Egyptian stagehand Farouk Abd Elhamid Khoaled was killed during a load-out accident after the close of the KISS Monster Tour 2013 show at the Forum of Assago arena. Reports vary by translation, but the general consensus was that three workers were operating either a fork lift / boom lift or a freight elevator (language translation web sites don't seem to agree on this) to move some scaffolding and crates to the loading dock. The lift was overloaded and began to oscillate, pitching Farouk into the path of a shifting load where he was crushed. One...

DESIGN : Cross sectional. METHODS : Test points on the floors were quantified in accordance with European Sports Surface Standard protocols for force reduction. Injuries and associated variables occurring...
