||Travail isolÚ: la communication et l'alarme [in French]|
||May 2007, No.5, p.6-10. Illus.
||As a consequence of the new forms of work organization which emerged during the 1980s, work in isolation is subject to new developments. Advances in technology and cost constraints - including the use of subcontractors - have indeed caused headcount decreases and offsite employment, but also an increase in the variety of tasks carried out in isolation. This article presents the findings of a study conducted in France by the INRS on the implementation of an efficient communication and alarm system for work in isolation. Contents: definition of work in isolation; accidents; hazard evaluation; means of communication; detection systems; alarm systems.
