Safe Employment Integration of Recent Immigrants and Refugees
This study examined the employment preparation and work experiences of recent immigrants and refugees in Ontario, Canada, to determine key resource needs and opportunities related to safe work integration. In-depth interviews were conducted with 22 service providers, program developers, and policy-makers from the immigration and employment fields. Eighteen focus groups were held with 110 recent immigrants and refugees who were looking for work or who had recently found work. An exploratory qualitative approach was used to collect and analyze the data. First jobs were often characterized by precarity...
Differences in safety training among smaller and larger construction firms with non-native workers
Evidence of overlapping vulnerabilities Collaborative efforts between the National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and the American Society of Safety Engineers (ASSE) led to a report focusing on overlapping occupational vulnerabilities, specifically small construction businesses employing young, non-native workers. Following the report, an online survey was conducted by ASSE with construction business representatives focusing on training experiences of non-native workers. Results were grouped by business size (50 or fewer employees or more than 50 employees). Smaller businesses...
Accueil et formation à l’embauche des étudiants occupant un emploi pendant l’année scolaire
Le cumul études-travail a crû de manière significative au cours des 30 dernières années au Québec. Plusieurs entreprises, notamment dans le secteur des services, comptent sur les étudiants pour pourvoir une partie de leurs besoins en main-d’œuvre. Ces emplois permettent aux étudiants de développer une première expérience professionnelle, mais ils les exposent également, tôt dans leur parcours professionnel, à certains risques professionnels qui peuvent avoir des impacts sur leur santé...
L’indispensable transmission des savoirs entre les travailleurs
Qu'on les nomme compagnons, parrains ou tuteurs, les travailleurs expérimentés ont beaucoup à apprendre à leurs nouveaux collègues sur l'exercice de leur métier et sur les stratégies de prudence. Des chercheurs ont étudié comment se transmettent ces savoirs. Source :
Santé au travail : deux poids, deux mesures
«Plusieurs études démontrent que les jeunes qui arrivent sur le marché du travail se blessent énormément», souligne Céline Chatigny. Spécialiste de la formation professionnelle et de la santé au travail, la professeure du Département d'éducation et formation spécialisées a mené une recherche portant sur la santé des élèves qui apprennent un métier dans un centre de formation professionnelle. Les résultats ont donné lieu à un article –...
Study finds persistence of higher injury risk for new workers
We know that newly hired workers face a higher injury rate. Recent research from the Institute for Work & Health finds that the higher risk of work injury among new workers has persisted over the past ten years. This suggests workplaces need to do more to ensure new workers get the training and supervision they need to stay safe on the job.

La transmission des savoirs de métier et de prudence par les travailleurs expérimentés - Comment soutenir cette approche dynamique de formation dans les milieux de travail
Une étude préalable a démontré que le savoir d'usineurs et de cuisiniers expérimentés constitue une richesse transmissible qui favorise l'intégration et le maintien en emploi de travailleurs moins exercés ainsi que leur santé et leur sécurité. Cette recherche consiste à déterminer les conditions propices à la transmission des savoirs de prudence de quatre métiers différents et posant des risques divers, soit auxiliaire familiale et sociale, cuisinier d'établissement...
Canada: Immigrants face greater injury risk
Recent immigrants who take jobs for which they are over-qualified are more than three times as likely to sustain an injury at work as their appropriately qualified peers who have been in the country for some time, Canadian researchers have found. They found having an educational level that exceeded the requirements of the job was associated with a higher risk of work injury for both men and women, but after taking account of the demands of the job this association held true only for men and only for repetitive strain injury. When immigrant status was considered separately, men who were recent immigrants...
Attitudes of Teenagers Towards Workplace Safety Training
More than 70 % of teenagers are employed before graduating high school. Every 10 min, in the United States, a young worker is injured on the job. Safety training has been suggested as a way to prevent injuries, yet little is known about the methods of safety training and the effectiveness of training that teens receive at work. This study is the first to assess the attitudes teens hold towards safety training and what they believe would help them stay safe on the job. In 2010, focus groups and interviews were conducted with 42 teens from public high schools in Jefferson County, Kentucky. Participating...
Comment transférer les savoirs d'expérience ?
Les savoir-faire, tours de main et autres "savoirs de prudence" peuvent s'avérer critiques pour la performance de l'entreprise. Issues de l'expérience, ces compétences implicites contribuent aussi à la préservation de la santé. Comment faciliter leur transmission aux plus jeunes ? Interview de Patrick Conjard, co-pilote du projet TSE de l'ANACT. Source :
How best to communicate health and safety messages to young learners in vocational education and training
This research project was commissioned by the Long Latency Health Risks Division (LLHRD) of the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) in order to identify the most effective ways of communicating messages about the risks of Long Latency Diseases (LLD) to young learners in Vocational Education and Training (VET). The National Centre for Social Research (NatCen) carried out the research for the HSE. Long Latency Diseases are caused by breathing in harmful substances, but the ill health can take a long time, often many years, to manifest after the point of exposure. Young learners are at particular risk...
Immigrant Workers in U.S. Construction
The U.S. construction industry has seen a dramatic increase in the number of Hispanic workers over the last two decades. From 1990 to 2000, Hispanic workers in construction doubled, from 700,000 to 1.5 million. Those numbers doubled again in less than 10 years, from 1.5 million in 2000 to 3 million in 2007. Although those numbers have dropped due to the recession and slump in residential and commercial construction, Hispanics still make up approximately 30% of blue-collar workers on construction sites across America. Today, among Hispanics entering the U.S. workforce for the first time, one in...
Age Awareness Training for Miners
Fom the first day of new miner training until the day they retire, mine workers will experience changes due to the normal aging process. It is an unfortunate fact of life that many age-related changes result in diminished physical, sensory, or cognitive capabilities. Of course, workers also gain a tremendous wealth of experience, knowledge, and insight as they age, making them a vitally important resource for their company. Effective leveraging of this precious resource requires both an appreciation of the changes that occur with age and an understanding of methods that can be used to reduce the...
