Abstract The publication of the Decree of 5 November 2001 concerning the creation of a document on the evaluation of hazards for the safety and health of workers (see CIS 01-1278) provided an opportunity for renewed discussions on the topic. This article consists of a review of presentations made during a symposium held on 6 June 2002 in Lyon, France organized by INRS together with the French occupational health insurance institution for the Rhône-Alpes region. Its purpose was to exchange views on the specific details concerning the involvement of occupational health services in evaluating hazards in small enterprises. Evaluations made by occupational health physicians in support of actions undertaken by employers were reviewed with reference to the regulatory framework. Occupational health services presented actions already undertaken or under way in small enterprises, and the occupational safety and health branch of the French social security administration presented the possible forms of collaboration with it's services.
