Is perception of safety climate a relevant predictor for occupational accidents?
Prospective cohort study among blue-collar workers Objectives: The capability of safety climate to predict accidents has been the target of widespread debate in occupational health and safety research. The objective of this prospective cohort study was to employ a shortened five-item safety climate survey to investigate whether safety climate reports in 2012 are predictive for accidents reported within the last 12 months in 2014. Methods: In both 2012 and 2014, 3864 blue-collar workers answered the Danish Working Environment and Health Cohort Study. Logistic regression was used to study the association...
Pénibilité au travail en milieu scolaire, stratégie de faire face et stratégie de défense chez les enseignants débutants
Un autre regard sur les éléments contributifs d’une vulnérabilité au phénomène de décrochage professionnel Cet article porte sur la pénibilité au travail en milieu scolaire dans l’enseignement secondaire en France. À partir de présupposés issus d’une approche transactionnelle du stress et d’une psychodynamique du travail son originalité est d’en documenter la complémentarité pour analyser les facteurs contributifs de cette pénibilité et pour comprendre...
Empirical measurement and improvement of hazard recognition skill
One explanation for high injury rates and the recent plateau in construction safety performance is that workers remain unable to recognize and manage hazards in dynamic and transient construction environments. This notion is supported by recent experimental studies, which revealed that workers are typically unable to identify and manage over 55% of hazards in their immediate work environment. These alarming discoveries prompted a series of multiple baseline experiments that tested three interventions thought to improve hazard recognition. In these studies, data were gathered from over 3000 h of...
Reasons Why Physicians and Advanced Practice Clinicians Work While Sick
A Mixed-Methods Analysis Importance: When clinicians work with symptoms of infection, they can put patients and colleagues at risk. Little is known about the reasons why attending physicians and advanced practice clinicians (APCs) work while sick. Objective: To identify a comprehensive understanding of the reasons why attending physicians and APCs work while sick. Design, Setting, and Participants: We performed a mixed-methods analysis of a cross-sectional, anonymous survey administered from January 15 through March 20, 2014, in a large children's hospital in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Data...

Cette recherche est exploratoire - il s'agit de la première étude portant sur l'ARS - et collaborative de par le partenariat établi avec un organisme décideur...
Compliance with the ANSI Z133.1 - 2006 safety standard among arborists in New England
INTRODUCTION: Arboriculture is hazardous work. A consensus safety standard exists, but little is known about compliance with it. This study aimed to determine whether accreditation and certification are associated with safety practices and to identify specific safety practices adhered to most and least. METHOD: Sixty-three tree care companies in southern New England were directly observed on job sites. Adherence to the American National Standards for Arboricultural Operations (ANSI Z133.1 - 2006) was compared across companies that were accredited, non-accredited with certified arborists on staff...
Profiling contextual factors which influence safety in heavy vehicle industries
A significant proportion of worker fatalities within Australia result from truck-related incidents. Truck drivers face a number of health and safety concerns. Safety culture, viewed here as the beliefs, attitudes and values shared by an organisation's workers, which interact with their surrounding context to influence behaviour, may provide a valuable lens for exploring safety-related behaviours in heavy vehicle operations. To date no major research has examined safety culture within heavy vehicle industries. As safety culture provides a means to interpret experiences and generate behaviour...

Le professeur Jacques Forest, de l'École des sciences de la gestion (ESG UQAM), vient de publier, à titre de cochercheur, un article sur les motivations au travail dans le European Journal of Work and Organizational Psychology. Intitulée « The Multidimensional Work Motivation Scale : Validation evidence in seven languages and nine countries », cette étude, entamée il y a sept ans, a été menée par un groupe de 20 chercheurs provenant des quatre coins de la planète. Elle démontre principalement que les motivations...
Les questionnaires au travail en révèlent plus que vous ne le croyez
Les réponses que vous inscrivez dans des questionnaires psychologiques pourraient correspondre à une signature biologique distincte témoignant de votre état de santé. De nouvelles recherches démontrent en effet une correspondance entre la perception qu'ont les travailleurs de leur propre bien-être et ce que leur corps manifeste en réalité. Il s'agit d'un enjeu de taille en santé au travail, quand on sait que le stress en milieu de travail arrive au premier rang des motifs invoqués pour les congés de maladie...
Harm to those who serve
Effects of direct and vicarious customer-initiated workplace aggression While there is a large body of research on the effects of being a direct target of workplace aggression, there is far less research on the vicarious experience of aggression at work, despite the fact that more people experience workplace aggression vicariously (i.e., observe it or hear about it) than they do directly. In this study, we develop and test a model of the effects of direct and vicarious exposure to aggression that is directed at employees by customers. Structural equation modeling provided support for the proposed...
The role of psychological factors in workplace safety
Workplace safety researchers and practitioners generally agree that it is necessary to understand the psychological factors that influence people's workplace safety behaviour. Yet, the search for reliable individual differences regarding psychological factors associated with workplace safety has lead to sparse results and inconclusive findings. The aim of this study was to investigate whether there are differences between the psychological factors, cognitive ability, personality and work-wellness of employees involved in workplace incidents and accidents and/or driver vehicle accidents and...
Is absence related to work stress? A repeated cross-sectional study on a special police force
Background Sickness absence due to illness is considered an indicator of work-related stress. Police work is a very stressful job. Sickness absence and sick leave are frequent among policemen. Methods We tested whether stress variables were predictors of absenteeism in a police unit specifically assigned to the maintenance of law and order. Results Control, Reward, and Support were negatively related to frequency of absence and short-term absence. Demand and Effort were positively related to total lost days. Absence recorded in the previous year was the best predictor of absenteeism. We also found...
Approche ergonomique et pénibilité perçue du travail avec les tout-petits
L'activité de travail des agents accueillant de jeunes enfants soit en crèche soit à leur domicile est étudiée par G. Valléry et S. Leduc sous l'angle de la pénibilité réelle et perçue du travail. L'accent est mis par les agents sur la pénibilité physique (en termes de douleurs) ce qui semble masquer une forme de "déni" de la dimension psychologique de la pénibilité (par exemple supporter les cris, les refus de manger, etc.). Au final, la pénibilité relative...
Work-related injury and ill-health among mountain instructors in the UK
In most industrialised countries, work-related injury and ill-health presents a major burden to society. Musculoskeletal disorders and stress are the most common reported illness types with those working in some industries more at risk than others. This study aimed to understand the occupational health issues of those working as mountain instructors in the outdoor sector within the UK and to identify the cultural norms and behaviours among this unique occupational group which influence health. Semi-structured, telephone interviews were conducted with 20 qualified mountaineers to gain information...
Développer une fonction commerciale : quels effets sur la santé des salariés ?
Dans le cadre d'une convention avec l'association AINF, l'ARACT a réalisé une étude sur les relations commerciales, leur développement et leurs effets sur la santé des salariés. Trois entreprises ont été étudiées pour comprendre comment un choix stratégique (introduire ou renforcer une dynamique commerciale) vient transformer le travail, son organisation et le rapport au travail des salariés. Dès lors, cette transformation engage leur santé : des risques apparaissent, mais quelques opportunités...
Virilité, métier et rapport aux risques professionnels
Le cas de travailleurs de la sous-traitance Le développement de la sous-traitance est l'une des modalités importantes de transformation du système productif tendant à fragiliser la construction de la santé au travail. Le rapport qu'entretiennent les travailleurs concernés aux risques professionnels est susceptible de former l'un des moments de cette fragilisation. Au travers de quels mécanismes sociaux et subjectifs? En quoi tendent-ils à atténuer la conscience de ces risques? Tel est l'objet de cet article, basé...
Health Impact of The Psychosocial Hazards of Work
An Overview Psychosocial risks go hand in hand with the experience of work-related stress. Longitudinal studies and systematic reviews have indicated that stress at work is associated with heart disease, depression, and musculoskeletal disorders and there is consistent evidence that high job demands, low control, and effort-reward imbalance are risk factors for mental and physical health problems, thereby leading to further strain on public spending for increased costs on healthcare. Despite the available evidence, the prevention and management of psychosocial risks has not been high on the policy...
Ne pas passer pour un « tire au flanc » ?
Les ambivalences du rapport aux risques professionnels chez des travailleurs de la sous-traitance Le développement de la sous-traitance se traduit par une opacification et une fragilisation de la santé au travail. Une enquête auprès de travailleurs masculins de la sous-traitance industrielle de site montre qu'ils cumulent d'instabilités et pénibilités professionnelles avec de fréquentes atteintes à leur santé. La conscience de ces risques existe, mais plusieurs mécanismes tendent à l'atténuer....
The speed kills you
The Voice of Nebraska's Meatpacking Workers Over the last decade, important efforts have been made to shed light on the conditions of workers within the meatpacking industry and create momentum for change.1 What makes this report unique is that it focuses on what workers see and experience on a daily basis and their thoughts and ideas about what needs to change. What is apparent from this report is that meatpacking workers care deeply about getting this story out to the public in order to improve safety conditions in the plants. We surveyed 455 workers across Nebraska – one of the country's...
New research shows surprising attitudes towards health and safety
New research due to be published demonstrates that employers and workers alike both recognise overwhelmingly that providing a safe workplace makes sound commercial sense. Nearly 90 per cent of business leaders say that people are their organisation's most important asset. In addition to preventing accidents, 65 per cent of employees say that good health and safety practices make them feel valued. http://www.hse.gov.uk/press/2009/e09044.htm
Understanding and influencing farmers’ attitudes
Agriculture, of all UK industries, has the highest rate of fatal accidents. This study has examined farmers' attitudes, and the underlying influences, to identify how these might be changed to help improve safety in the industry. A literature review showed that people's perceptions of risk are influenced by social, cultural and group processes but no studies look specifically at perceptions of risk and attitudes to safety among farmers. http://www.hse.gov.uk/research/rrhtm/rr700.htm
