Resumen Accidents, the causes of which include disturbances in the victim's movements, cannot be explained as phenomena involving a person encountering a hazard defined as an element a priori incompatible with human presence. These accidents include, in particular, falls on the level, which form a very high proportion of occupational accidents. In the event of an accident resulting from movement disturbance, damage partly results from the victim's own movement energy. Based on this initial observation, this article firstly recalls the challenge represented by the prevention of this type of accident in France, which is indeed contrary to the accepted idea that these occupational accidents are frequently minor. Aspects specific to the considered accidents are then identified, specifically in terms of exposure and hazard. The consequences of the specific characteristics are then discussed in terms of the difficulties, even the impossibility, of implementing risk-focused prevention in the strict sense. Finally, two acknowledgements are obvious: the need to give broader consideration to the genesis of these accidents and thus prompt the emergence of prevention options, and the practical value of seeking a typology for these accidents.
