||This article discusses the risks incurred by motorcycle dispatch workers. This activity is characterized by high rates of severe road accidents, lack of training and the absence of recognition under collective agreements. Workers come from different backgrounds, often unrelated to the activity. Atmospheric pollution is a legitimate case for concern among workers. Three fictional case descriptions illustrate the working conditions experienced in this activity. Contents of the occupational information sheet accompanying the article: characteristics of the activity; description of the activity; risks and constraints; occupational diseases; preventive measures; regulations; aptitude criteria and contraindications.
