||The development of hazard evaluation within enterprises is among the objectives of the policy defined by the French supervisory committee for the prevention of occupational hazards (Conseil supérieur de la prévention des risques professionnels). For this reason, various French government agencies jointly published this guide together with several occupational safety and health organizations. Its purpose is to facilitate this approach to occupational safety and health. It is aimed at enterprise owners, but also at workers' representatives, occupational physicians, industry and trade associations and safety and health specialists. Contents: objectives of hazard evaluation for the purposes of improving occupational safety and health; steps to be followed; external organizations which can assist enterprises in carrying out this evaluation.
