The encouraging results of the 3rd occupational health plan

Main advances of the 3rd occupational health plan

Training in occupational health and safety is one of the major advances in this plan. Thus, in 2019, nearly one million employees benefited from such training. In addition, a study revealed that young people under 25 years of age trained in occupational health and safety during their schooling are two times less victims of work accidents than others.

The range of services for VSEs and SMEs has been strengthened to provide support as closely as possible to needs. The report highlights the more than 40,000 sessions opened on the online tool OiRA which helps companies in the hotels, cafes and restaurants, road transport, non-food businesses, garages, care and dental prosthesis sectors to assess their risks.

The results on the subject of psychosocial risks are also encouraging. DARES has shown that between 2010 and 2017, the level of exposure to psychosocial risks fell. At the same time, the quality of life at work has been the subject of numerous awareness-raising tools and more than 4,000 company agreements.

Long-awaited results

Despite this, the figures show that progress remains to be made in terms of prevention:

  • 655,715 work accidents were recorded in 2019;
  • 1.8 million employees are exposed to at least one carcinogenic product;
  • despite numerous prevention tools, the risk of falling from a height and at the same level remains the cause of 28% of work accidents and 21% of deaths following work accidents;
  • despite awareness kits and technical developments, more than 44,000 cases of MSDs were recognized as occupational diseases in 2019.

Les Editions Tissot offers you a whole range of operational kits to bring health and safety to life at work, on themes such as working at height or repetitive movements.

A favorable context for the follow-up to this plan

The rapprochement between occupational health and public health is taking shape, with partnerships on subjects such as cancer, cardiovascular diseases and addictions.
Thus, thanks to the partnership between the National Cancer Institute, ANDRH and the ANACT-ARACT network, more than 50 employers with 1.4 million employees committed in 2020 by signing the charter on support for affected employees. by cancer.

This rapprochement between health at work and public health is, along with the strengthening of primary prevention and the prevention of the risk of professional exclusion, one of the major challenges also raised by the law of August 2, 2021 to strengthen prevention in health at work. .

This conjunction testifies to a favorable context for the pursuit of these challenges.

A future plan in continuity

The report of the 2016-2020 occupational health plan also underlines the interest of further involving and mobilizing inter-company occupational health services in the fourth occupational health plan.

The changes in the service and management offer provided for by law to strengthen prevention in occupational health should facilitate the achievement of this objective.

Also, the next occupational health plan will follow on from the previous one, with the renewal of sustained efforts in favor of the prevention of identified risks.

Institutional players also plan to take into account changes in the world of work: epidemic risks, artificial intelligence, or emerging risks, in particular related to the environment.

Finally, the next occupational health plan should integrate the role of companies in the fight against sedentary lifestyle or the fight against sexual violence and sexist acts.
