||This article comments recent court rulings in France concerning the employers' inexcusable error as defined by the provisions of article L.452-1 of the Social Security Law. While employers are responsible not only for engaging efforts but also for ensuring results with respect to the prevention of occupational accidents and diseases, victims must now also prove that employers who should have been aware of the risk had not taken the necessary preventive actions.
