Le système de santé au travail dans certains pays de l’Union Européenne, au Royaume-Uni et en Suisse

Abstract : Background Council Framework Directive 89/391 / EEC of 12 June 1989 lays down general principles in the field of occupational safety and health. Objective To review in detail occupational health systems in some EU member states, including the United Kingdom and adding Switzerland, and to identify their most remarkable aspects. Methods A questionnaire on the organization of occupational health protection, containing 41 open questions, was developed and sent to occupational health professionals with professional experience in one of the 28 EU countries or in Switzerland. The completed questionnaires were synthesized in the form of a table which shows the matching results between several questionnaires or reliable sources. Outcome Out of the 104 questionnaires we had sent out 25 usable questionnaires were collected between February and September 2017. Replies came from the following 13 countries: Germany (1); Austria (1); Belgium (3); Bulgaria (1); Spain (3); Finland (1); Italy (4); Luxembourg (2); The Netherlands (1); Portugal (2); United Kingdom (3); Slovenia (1) and Switzerland (2). The provision of occupational health and safety services for employees is legally mandatory for the majority of responding countries (13/14). A list of significant facts about the different European health systems and, comparatively, a list of the characteristics of the French system were made. Conclusion The study shows similarities and national differences and highlights the difficulty of harmonizing occupational health systems. This study is a topical subject as it coincides with the commissioned assignment by the French Prime Minister which will include an international comparison.
