Abstract Comprised of over 10,000 stores employing 480,000 workers, the large retail sector is particularly exposed to occupational accidents and diseases. During 2006 in France, there were 61 occupational accidents per thousand workers in hypermarkets and 68 occupational accidents per thousand workers in supermarkets. The French national occupational disease insurance for salaried workers (CNAMTS) therefore decided to undertake various prevention initiatives together with sector professional bodies and large retail chains, which are summarized in this Internet document.
