Car and truck workshops
The rate of occupational accidents and illnesses is high in the car and heavy truck workshops, especially in the Very Small Entreprises (SMEs). The prevention of occupational risks is a way to preserve the health of employees and the financial strength of the businesses.
Repair and maintenance activities of light and heavy vehicles provide jobs for approximately 140 000 persons in France. The compensation for accidents at work and occupational diseases supported by the Social Security on behalf of these companies represents more than 3 % of their payroll.
