Title Preliminary study of accident risks in very large and medium-sized supermarkets
Original title Enquête préliminaire sur les risques d'accidents dans les hypermarchés et supermarchés [in French]
Bibliographic information 4th Quarter 1986, No.125, Note No.1604-125-86, p.477-493. Illus. 44 ref.
Abstract In view of the lack of information on hazards in large stores, the survey was carried out on a small but varied sample of stores using the following methods: general on-site observation; documentary analysis (accident reports, characteristics of the population concerned); interviews with store managers, safety officers, members of CHSCTs (Committees on Safety, Health and Working Conditions); study of the trade by bibliographical analysis and contact with staff and safety specialists. The report analyses the collected data: store organisation, attitudes by different categories of staff to safety and to working condition, risk factors, proposed action.
