The roles and operation of CHSCT are defined in French Decree no. 82-453, amended by Decree no. 2011-774. In November 2011, CHS (Heath and Safety Committees) in the civil service became CHSCT, including working conditions within the scope of their competence.

The principal missions entrusted to CHSCT are to:

  • contribute to improving safety and working conditions;
  • collaborate in analyses of occupational risks and visits to different units;
  • participate in the analysis of occupational accidents and illnesses;
  • cooperate in training plans with respect to prevention;
  • ensure compliance with the right to "whistle-blowing" and conformity with regulatory requirements.
