Les violences au travail

Abstract : This PhD study concerns sexual, emotional, physical and environmental violence in the workplace. Psychology research has identified that the factors that contribute to violence in the workplace are related to the individual, the organisation, to personality and changes in work conditions, while the law considers violence as the result of behaviours or attitudes described in the articles of the law. This study has three aims: a) to identify the different forms of violence in an organisational environment and classify them by frequency and perpetrator, b) to develop and validate a French scale of environmental harassment at work, and c) to identify the individual and organisational factors liable to predict environmental harassment at work.(a) 93% of the participants had experienced violence in the workplace, which can be divided into 4 groups: offences against physical integrity, violation of the dignity of a person, denigration of the person, denigration of work.(b) A scale of environmental harassment at work (EHET) was validated, with 4 dimensions: manipulation of the acoustic environment, manipulation of the work environment, manipulation of the personal environment, and manipulation of the private space.(c) Perceived organisational support and attachment to the workplace negatively correlate with the dimensions Manipulation of the acoustic environment, Manipulation of the work space and Manipulation of the work environment.This work shows that organisations would benefit from the work of environmental psychology in order to meet their obligation to prevent violence in the workplace.
