CONNAISSANCE DES ACCIDENTS DU TRAVAIL ET PARCOURS D'ACCIDENTÉS. Regard sociologique sur les angles morts d'une question de santé publique

Abstract : What we know about occupational accidents in France mostly comes from figures published by the French national health services: the Caisse nationale de l'assurance maladie des travailleurs salariés (CNAMTS). These figures show limitations which have been identified over 20 years ago, and were recently pointed out by the Cour des Comptes (2002). A longitudinal survey was carried out among 32 injured workers and our research suggests an alternative approach to occupational accidents which focuses on the point where work organisation hinges onto the individual and collective history of those injured. The issue is to question social relations within the work environment, first from the point of view of the accident itself and its impact on the body and on their life; then it focuses on how the accident is acknowledged and expenses paid for. From a public health angle, this work puts forward a critical analysis of institutional devices responsible for the visibility – or invisibility – of occupational accidents and of those injured. Following a critical inventory of current institutional knowledge on occupational accidents, the first part of this thesis describes the chosen sociological approach. Fuelled by a quantitative approach, the second part deals with the accident itself, from the moment it occurs to the moment it is acknowledged. The third part is dedicated to post-accident developments, from the conditions of going back to work to the medium term future of the workers which have been monitored for three years.
