Henry, Emmanuel. (2009) The uncertain legitimacy of occupational health policies. GSPE Working Paper 5/01/2009. [Working Paper] (Unpublished)
Because they deal with issues of bodily integrity and health, the occupational health policies reveal the contradictions of public action in the field of occupational relationships, and the fragile compromises to which they lead. This paper questions the difficulties related to the legitimisation of public policies in the field of workplace health. We analyse the reasons why these policies are difficult to legitimate and present an overview of the solutions that have been elaborated to answer this problem. The recent evolutions of public health policies, especially the arrival of new actors in traditional arenas of negotiation, tend to weaken these compromises and force actors to elaborate new modes of action. These evolutions should then be analysed by taking into account other public policies, in order to determine to what extent the management of occupational risks is undergoing the same transformations or if this field remains unaffected.
