[en] Currently, the different forms of corporate management methods (quality circles, lean manufacturing, etc.) are usually based on employee mobilisation. Very often, the goal of this type of approach is at best, to ensure that employees embrace
corporate projects, or otherwise to impose changes on them without taking into account the real work and difficulties that they
face daily. However, do these employee solicitation methods converge with participatory approaches as envisaged by ergonomists and more generally, preventionists? Based on the observation that the activity of institutional preventionists evolves with
regulatory constraints and work related to the monitoring of indicators, the implementation and steering of the participatory
approach within companies may be a major lever for prevention. After describing the foundations of a participatory approach,
this paper will present a training experiment aimed at implementing and promoting employee participation in prevention efforts. The content of this training is then analysed with regard to the balance between methodology and the use of trainees’
narratives. The results of the training session are presented from the point of view of the development prospects for pedagogical tools and the organisation of the training.
