Abstract A survey of 85 French firms with mixtures of temporary workers and staff on longer contracts showed that the latter have accidents just as often and just as seriously as temporary employees do. Some risk factors seem to be common to the two types of employment, while some are specific to one or the other. Some firms have effective safety policies for precarious work; others do not. The factors that distinguish effective policies from ineffective ones remain to be determined.
