When the practice of sport leaves the sphere of leisure to enter the professional world, the body becomes the worker's primary tool. A particularity which has as a consequence to place the individual at the center of the actions of prevention of the risks. However, purely individual approaches are insufficient. Even for these activities, the collective dimension of prevention must not be neglected. It is possible by acting on the environment, the equipment or the rules of the game.

Quand la pratique du sport quitte la sphère du loisir pour pénétrer le monde professionnel, le corps devient le premier outil du travailleur. Une particularité qui a pour conséquence de placer l’individu au centre des actions de prévention des risques. Cependant, les démarches purement individuelles sont insuffisantes. Même pour ces activités, la dimension collective de la prévention ne doit pas être négligée. Elle est possible en agissant sur l’environnement, le matériel ou les règles du jeu.
