- Monitor occupational exposure and worker impregnation, in particular through occupational exposure matrices, crop exposure matrices or the National Biomonitoring Program;

Santé publique France mène l’ensemble de ses actions dans le domaine de la santé au travail en lien avec d’autres acteurs du champ comme la Direction des risques professionnels de la CNAM, l’INRS, la MSA ou encore la Société Médecine Française the work. Collaboration with research teams is also sources of strong and important partnerships, allowing for strong interrelationships between research and control actions with the goal of improving prevention of occupational hazards.
“ The field of occupational health is complex, many players are involved and their work must be concerted and cohesive. The need arose to modernize the monitoring systems that contribute to the improvement of knowledge. The French Public Health Authority is actively involved in this matter by initiating exchanges between the institutions concerned and with the various partners. The health crisis caused by Covid-19 has highlighted major challenges to occupational health. Our priorities are to estimate the health workload in terms of disease and determinants, and to provide decision makers and prevention professionals with the knowledge and tools necessary to function in the workplace. Employers can also play a critical role in the health of their employees, which is why the agency created the platform” Employers for health » Provide them with the appropriate tools to disseminate prevention and health promotion policy within their structure Professor Genevieve Chen, Director-General of Public Health in France
