Abstract In 2004, the French Institute for public health surveillance (Institut français de veille sanitaire) and the INRS had jointly developed a methodological guide for helping occupational physicians facilitate and promote epidemiological surveillance within the enterprise (see CIS 06-316). In 2007, a questionnaire was addressed to 6038 occupational physicians for the purpose of evaluating the perception and practical impact of the guide. This article analyses the 1164 questionnaire responses received. The key finding of the survey is that very few occupational health services have actually adopted the methods proposed in the guide.
