Title Identification of risks in occupational settings through the participation of workers - DEPARIS approach
Original title DEpistage PArticipatif des RISques dans une situation de travail - Méthode DEPARIS [in French]
Bibliographic information 2002, Vol.XXXIX, No.4, p.149-167. 22 ref.
Abstract This article describes an approach for the identification of hazards suited for small enterprises, involving the participation of workers. The working conditions are systematically reviewed and all aspects influencing the ease, efficiency and satisfaction at work are discussed with the aim of identifying practical prevention measures. Points needing further investigation with the assistance of specialists or experts are highlighted. The procedure is followed during a meeting of key operators and technical managers. The approach is shown to be simple, quick to implement and low in cost. It could play a significant role in the development of a dynamic risk management programme and a participatory culture in the enterprise.
