Motivating employees for the use of personal protective equipment
Experience shows that many employees do not use personal protective equipment (PPE) for a variety of reasons. Coercing them into wearing PPEs is generally not effective. Consultations with labour organizations lead to identifying the main reasons for not wearing PPEs: lack of knowledge on the hazard; overconfidence; negligence; fear of ridicule when wearing PPEs; perception that use of PPEs slows down work, resulting in lower production and possible lower earnings; perception that PPEs are not necessary; discomfort. Each of these reasons are discussed briefly, and suggestions are made on motivating employees to use PPEs.

Behavioural studies of people's attitudes to wearing hearing protection and how these might be changed
Workers exposed to noise do not always wear hearing protection when they should. This is due to a range of physical, ergonomic and behavioural factors. This report describes a study carried out to identify ways in which workers' behaviour could be modified so as to make them more likely to adopt hearing protection. In a first phase, a range of companies were visited to assess the degree of workers' use and acceptance of hearing protection and to determine what action management had taken to encourage its use. In a second phase, examples of good practice were identified from these surveys and from the literature, and implemented into workplace interventions that were carried out in four of the companies previously visited. The interventions included providing suitable training and information, offering alternative types of hearing protection, and coaching management in basic feedback and communication techniques for encouraging workers to modify their behaviour.

Skin protection in bakers' apprentices
To study skin protection and skin care measures among first year bakers' apprentices, apprentices were assigned either to a skin protection group trained in skin protection measures trained (n=39) or to a control group (n=55) and followed-up during four months. Barrier cream use in the skin protection group reached 100% by the end of the examination period. At that time, only 3.2% of the controls used barrier creams. The level of acceptance of protective gloves (skin protection group 43.3%; controls 32.3%) was considerably lower than that of barrier creams. The initial level of regular skin care was high in both groups (skin protection group 67.6%, controls 61.7%). After the intervention, the acceptance of skin care rose to 88.9% in the skin protection group compared to 68.1% in the controls. It is concluded that high rates in the compliance of skin protection measures can be achieved through intervention.

Occupational safety and health issues associated with knowledge transfer: Case of machinists and cooks
Enjeux de santé et de sécurité au travail dans la transmission des savoirs professionnels: le cas des usineurs et des cuisiniers [in French]
The aim of this study was to develop a better understanding of the occupational safety and health issues related to knowledge transfer in occupational settings. A first phase of the study consisted in taking stock of the current situation of apprenticeship within enterprises with the Quebec employment agency (Emploi-Québec). The study then focused on two high-risk occupations, cooks and machinists. It was conducted within two enterprises and involved discussions with managers, trade union representatives, skilled workers and apprentices. As highlighted by the two case studies, the issue of transmission of knowledge is mutli-faceted and complex. It is important that the assignment of tasks takes into account the age and experience of the workers. Furthermore, numerous organizational and environmental factors influence the way in which knowledge transmission occurs. Proposals for further studies are made, together with recommendations addressed to Emploi-Québec for facilitating apprenticeships in enterprises.
