What is a prevention plan?

A prevention plan (PDP) is a document which aims to identify the risks linked to interference, or co-activities, when one or more external companies must intervene within a so-called "user" company. The drafting of this document is the responsibility of the user company.
It is carried out jointly with the external company(ies). It is validated and signed by all parties. It is made available to the Economic Social Committee (CSE).
Gestion des risques

Prévention industrielle
During an exchange between all parties before the start of the work, called a Joint Prior Inspection (ICP), each party first presents its operating procedure and the risk analysis for its own staff. Secondly, the exchange makes it possible to establish the risk analysis on interference, or coactivity, between external companies and the user company. The rules to be respected are then agreed to eliminate or reduce these risks.

There is not a single model of prevention plan because it must be adapted to the sites for which they are carried out. However, you can find examples on the INRS (Institut national de recherche et de sécurité) : intervention by external companies.

What do the regulations say for drafting a prevention plan?

Pursuant to article R.4512-7 of the Labor Code, the drafting of a PDP is mandatory in the following two cases:
  • If the total number of working hours is equal to at least 400 hours over a year.
  • If the intervention is qualified as “dangerous” (see the definition given in the judgment of March 19, 1993 and May 10, 1994).

Plan de prévention
However, it is advisable to write one even if it is not obligatory in order to reduce the risk of accidents by facilitating collaboration with safety stakeholders.

The Prevention Plan is therefore the official document required by the labor inspector, the Caisses d'Assurance Retraite et de la Santé Au travail (CARSAT) which in each region have the mission of preventing professional risks and engaging companies in prevention through its advisory and control actions in business.

The PDP applies as long as the intervention lasts and must be updated whenever necessary to take into account changes in intervention conditions. For example, when new installations or new equipment are used or new employees are required to intervene on the site.

It is possible to draw up an annual PDP for repetitive operations specified by an annual contract. This annual prevention plan must then not be too general and must be updated as much as necessary.

Why use software for Prevention Plans?

Nowadays, they are still written a lot on paper or via Excel, which does not facilitate their use and communication.
The temptation could also be strong to discharge oneself from one's legal obligations, by evoking in an exhaustive and generic manner all the possible risks with their parades.
The danger here is not taking the time to ask questions each time to carry out a relevant risk analysis.

Software for prevention plans offers numerous functionalities: from simple online entry to generate a PDF to the management of workflows which allow the user company and its service providers to exchange digitally and sign electronically.
Dedicated software for prevention plans can allow significant time savings with easy entry from a simple web browser or on the move on a smartphone.
If necessary, the information can also be pre-filled by the user company and external companies: the personnel involved, their authorizations, the single list of identified risks and their solutions, the operating methods of the service providers with their risk analysis, the installations on which involve the construction sites and the associated risks, etc. All stakeholders are notified by email for information or action.

In order to be able to adapt to all situations, the coactivity software must be able to be easily customizable, without calling on the editor to choose the information to enter or edit on the PDF. It may need to be customizable for configuring the signature workflow.

The associated workflows are customizable. very easily. An editor also allows you to create as many as you want in “no code” mode.

Its strong points are its simple interface, service providers' access to the software, graphic visualization of co-activities in real time and to come, the version on phone or tablet which allows risk analysis to be carried out in the field, even without connection. internet, with features available such as taking annotable photos and electronic signatures.
