Troubles musculo-squelettiques d’origine professionnelle en France. Où en est-on aujourd’hui ?

Abstract :

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders in France. What is the situation today? Musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) represent one of the most worrying issues in occupational health today. They are the leading cause of morbidity at work, morbidity widely underestimated by the statistics of workers’ compensation claims for occupational diseases. It is not a French specific phenomenon. In 2005, the most often reported problem linked to work by European Union workers are MSDs (backache and muscular pains). MSDs are also the first cause of compensated occupational diseases in several European countries. The epidemiological surveillance program for work-related MSDs, implemented in 2002 in France’s Pays de la Loire region, has allowed a better description of the current increased number of MSDs on a population scale, an assessment of the proportion of cases attributable to work exposure, and a better knowledge of the medical and professional evolution of patients suffering from MSDs. The data of Pays de la Loire region will be enhanced in the near future by those from Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur and Île de France regions. Mobilisation around this question has been increasing considerably these last few years, and should be maintained in order to face this occupational health challenge.
