Abstract

Fifteen to 20 % of fatal work-related accidents would be connected to the use of alcohol, psychotrops or narcotics. Many constraints restrain the systematic detection of addictive behaviour at work. The restraints can be financial, ethical, technical or laid down in the regulations. The occupational physician remains the main actor in the prevention of the risks caused by those behaviours. In 2004, the firm SNCF engaged a long-term action of drugs information and detection. It has been well-understood by the agents and all the firm's operators achieved in appropriated conditions, with a strict respect of the medical secret. In four years, the number of detected consumers decreased by half.
