Analyzing territorial governance to prevent occupational risks in the sector of waste management

Abstract : Waste recycling management, in France, depends on numerous decisions made between policy makers acting at different levels. Focusing on research carried out in four waste sorting centers, we analyze the dimensions of the territory that impact on working conditions for operators. System performance in terms of sustainable development raises the essential question of sectors and flows of waste collected. However, it also appears that the latter and the collection process are central issues for prevention (in terms of employee health, safety and welfare). We examine the design process and seek disconnections between the sorting center and its territory that impact work activity. Our goal is therefore to identify margins of maneuver for safeguarding occupational health and preventing risks.
