French report on burnout highlights OiRA as risk assessment tool for MSEs


A parliamentary fact-finding mission report adopted by the Social Affairs Commission in France outlines the OiRA tools developed by the National Research and Safety Institute (INRS) to help micro and small enterprises (MSEs) evaluate their own risks.

It points out that these tools provide users with practical guidance on their risk assessment process, offering them preventive solutions adapted to each sector in order to build up action plans. The report also describes resources and measures carried out by the INRS to prevent occupational diseases and accidents. These include guides, posters and a software to help evaluate psychosocial risks in MSEs.

The document provides a comprehensive analysis of the occupational burnout syndrome, including its definition and the aspects related to the ‘over-engagement in work’ notion. It also contains some background information to put the concept in context, as well as proposals for measures and policies to identify and prevent burnout.
