OHS certification and legal compliance management in France: a quantitative survey

Abstract : Management of legal compliance in the field of Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) has become a significant policy management challenge for French companies. Pushed to take action as a result of pressure that is as much socio-economic as legal or even moral, practical difficulties in the implementation of compliance management tools remain. In practice, whether it is the determination of the applicable legal requirements, the assessment of compliance with these requirements or the management of action plans, the methodological and technological difficulties are multiple. Standards, such as OHSAS 18001, attempt to provide solutions that improve management of OHS legal compliance through integration into a broader management system. Moreover, as standards offer a way to certify the quality of these systems they have a particular role to play in improving companies' awareness of OHS legislation. In order to clearly identify the obstacles encountered by OHS professionals, a wide-ranging quantitative survey of 820 OHS professionals was carried out in 2011. It had two principal objectives. The first was to study business practices in the area of regulatory monitoring and the assessment of legal compliance in the OHS domain. The second was to highlight the positive and/or negative relationships that may exist between the processes of compliance management and certification. This article consists of four parts. The first two describe the challenges presented by the development of the quantitative survey and the methodology used in its implementation. The third and fourth parts present the principal results.
