Title
Reducing Workplace Accidents: “Positive Deviant” Practices of Garbage Collectors in France
Abstract
When it comes to accident reduction and workplace safety, the organizational norm is to implement top-down, expert-driven, technical solutions, often ignoring the cultural mechanisms that underlie risk-taking. The present case study discusses how the incorporation of positive deviance (PD) sensibilities allowed a garbage collection agency in a large city in France to develop better relations with its crews of sanitation workers, reducing accident rates in a hazardous profession.
