Abstract This article presents the main findings of a study concerning the management of safety by workers. A worksite activity (the replacement of a circuit-breaker on a pole) involving two or three workers was analysed, and the results showed the complexity of safety management by the workers and highlighted the importance of improving workers' ability to anticipate safety problems.
