Pratiques des milieux de travail pour assurer un retour en emploi sain et durable

Au Québec, la Loi sur les accidents du travail et des maladies professionnelles (LATMP) établit que tout travailleur ayant subi une lésion professionnelle qui porte atteinte à son intégrité physique ou psychique a droit à la réadaptation que requiert son état en vue de sa réinsertion sociale et professionnelle. La LATMP prévoit aussi un droit de retour au travail lorsque le travailleur redevient capable d’exercer son métier. Les organisations et les travailleurs sont donc directement concernés par la mise en place de solutions de retour au travail (RaT) adéquates, durables et efficaces. Alors que la littérature récente nous renseigne abondamment sur les principes d’intervention basés sur les données probantes permettant un RaT sain et durable (pratiques exemplaires), les pratiques des milieux de travail à cet égard auprès des travailleurs ayant subi un trouble musculosquelettique (TMS) ont été, à ce jour, peu étudiées. Globalement, la présente étude vise à évaluer les écarts éventuels entre les pratiques exemplaires de RaT, basées sur des données probantes, et les pratiques actuelles des milieux de travail pour, par la suite, proposer des pistes d’amélioration. Plus précisément, les objectifs spécifiques suivants ont été définis : 1) Identifier les pratiques exemplaires de RaT durable et de prévention de l’incapacité prolongée des travailleurs ayant subi un TMS; 2) Décrire les pratiques actuelles de RaT dans quelques organisations québécoises et déterminer les éléments contextuels facilitant leur mise en place; 3) Explorer les écarts entre les pratiques exemplaires recommandées en recherche et les pratiques actuelles des milieux de travail pour ensuite envisager des façons d’améliorer le transfert entre la théorie et la pratique.

Barriers to and facilitators of return to work after sick leave in workers with common mental disorders

Perspectives of workers, mental health professionals, occupational health professionals, general physicians and managers
Common mental disorders (CMDs), such as anxiety, stress and depression, are among the leading causes of disability worldwide and have a major impact in terms of lost productivity and sickness absence. Returning to work is a complex process in which different stakeholders may be involved and have to co-operate.
This report discusses the return-to-work process of workers on sick leave with CMDs, and the barriers and facilitators from a multi-stakeholder perspective, ie workers, managers, mental health professionals, occupational health professionals and general physicians. This research was undertaken by Tilburg University.

Work, organisational practices, and margin of manoeuver during work reintegration

BACKGROUND: Many individuals of working age experience cardiovascular disease and are disabled from work as a result. The majority of research in cardiac work disability has focused on individual biological and psychological factors influencing work disability despite evidence of the importance of social context in work disability. In this article, the focus is on work and organisational features influencing the leeway (margin of manoeuvre) workers are afforded during work reintegration.
METHODS: A qualitative method was used. A large auto manufacturing plant was selected owing to work, organisational, and worker characteristics. Workplace context was assessed through site visits and meetings with stakeholders including occupational health, human resources and union personnel and a review of collective agreement provisions relating to seniority, benefits and accommodation. Worker experience was assessed using a series of in-depth interviews with workers (n = 12) returning to work at the plant following disabling cardiac illness. Data was analysed using qualitative content analysis.
RESULTS: Workers demonstrated variable levels of adjustment to the workplace that could be related to production expectations and work design. Policies and practices around electronic rate monitoring, seniority and accommodation, and disability management practices affected the buffer available to workers to adjust to the workplace.
CONCLUSIONS: Work qualities and organisational resources establish a margin of manoeuver for work reintegration efforts. Practitioners need to inform themselves of the constraints on work accommodation imposed by work organisation and collective agreements. Organisations and labour need to reconsider policies and practices that creates unequal accommodation conditions for disabled workers. Implications for rehabilitation Margin of manoeuvre offers a framework for evaluating and structuring work reintegration programmes. Assessing initial conditions for productivity expectations, context and ways and means to support work reintegration can be integrated with worker perceptions of work ability and possibilities for adaptation to structure and then monitor work reintegration programmes. Margin of manoeuvre can be used to evaluate sustainability of work at the end of rehabilitation. Cause-based workers' compensation schemes, collective agreement provisions, and organisational approaches to non-compensable disability create two tiers of disabled workers and make certain workers more vulnerable to occupational disability.
