Description

This case study takes place in a residential center for retiring women with mental disabilities. MSDs are subject of particular attention by those involved in prevention. Based on collectively defined criteria, they carried out, as part of an action-training course, an inventory based on observation and interviews. The analysis was then shared with the steering committee. The diagnosis made it possible to set up preventive actions for MSDs and to reflect more generally on the Quality of life at work approach.

Cette étude de cas se déroule dans ce centre d’accueil de personnes handicapées mentale. Les TMS y font l’objet d’une attention particulière de la part des acteurs de la prévention. Partant de critères définis collectivement, ceux-ci ont effectué, dans le cadre d’une formation-action, un état des lieux mené à partir d'observation et d'entretiens. L'analyse a ensuite été partagée avec le comité de pilotage. Le diagnostic posé a permis de mettre en place des actions de prévention et de réfléchir d'une manière plus générale à la démarche de Qualité de vie au travail.
