This national survey was carried out in France by the AFNOR group, in conjunction with Mines ParisTech and PREVENTEO. The aim is to have a better understanding of what it means to be an OSH practitioner in France. This in-depth knowledge is achieved through the fulfilment of three objectives. The first is to use a typological approach to characterise the population of OSH practitioners, using profiling. Three profiles are identified and described in detail: the OSH “manager”, the OSH “fieldworker”, and the OSH “officer”. The second objective is to establish current practice with respect to professional requirements, particularly in relation to the ways in which safety policies are designed and implemented. The final objective is to define new and emerging needs with respect to the contribution that databases and software can make to decision-making.
This study is the result of the analysis of the responses of 803 French OSH practitioners. They were selected randomly from a list of 12,000 practitioners published by Officiel Prévention1 and interviewed by telephone. The sample was matched with the ASTREE2 database which provided further information used in the analysis (company turnover, average headcount, export ratio, etc.). Econometric modelling methods (logistical regression techniques) were used to produce the explanatory analysis. The results are organised into five sections: context and objectives, typological approaches, prevention policy, developments and resources, and lessons learned.
