Métropole Rouen Normandie and its partners are launching a study to co-construct a new forum for dialogue around industrial safety.
In partnership with the University of Rouen Normandy, the ICSI (Institute for a Culture of Industrial Safety) and Pierre Lénel (sociologist who participated in setting up the local conference of the city of Feyzin), the Métropole Rouen Normandie puts set up a survey on citizen expectations and the local perception of industrial risks. This study aims to create a permanent forum for discussion between the actors on this subject: inhabitants, elected officials, institutions and industrialists. This started in mid-May and will run until the end of July 2022.
For Nicolas Mayer-Rossignol, President of the Rouen Normandy Metropolis, Mayor of Rouen and Charlotte Goujon, Vice-President in charge of health and sanitary and industrial safety: “ There is no industrial security possible without transparency and dialogue. With the University of Rouen Normandy, the Institute for an Industrial Safety Culture (ICSI) and Pierre Lénel, we have launched a study with a view to building new tools in this direction. From mid-May to the end of July, the various actors, including residents, will be surveyed through a two-phase survey: a first phase consisting of around fifty individual interviews (associations, citizens, elected officials, industrialists) then a second phase open to as many people as possible through online questionnaires on the “Je Participe” site of the Métropole Rouen Normandie. With one objective: to produce a report for the start of the 2022 academic year proposing the organization of a new, more efficient and more transparent dialogue body. »
A two-phase investigation:
The investigation will begin with a first phase consisting of around fifty individual interviews of one hour each. This phase, named after the sociologist Pierre Lénel, will aim to identify the main concerns and wishes of the respondents, on the basis of a pre-established interview grid. Four territories were selected for this first phase, in order to achieve a representative panel of the Metropolitan territory: Elbeuf, Grand Quevilly, Bois-Guillaume and Duclair.
Teams dedicated to the study will be present for several days in each municipality, both in the public space and in town halls, in order to carry out interviews with volunteer residents, as well as with institutional and associative personalities. Secondly, a questionnaire drawn up on the basis of the feedback from the first phase will make it possible to question a greater number of inhabitants on the subjects identified in the first phase.
The Métropole and its partners are aiming for a minimum of 400 responses to the questionnaire, which will be made available to the public in two ways:
– in distribution, via the presence of dedicated agents in different places in the city, at varying times, in order to reach a varied audience.
– online, on the platform of the Métropole Rouen Normandie “Je Participe”
The horizon for the start of the 2022 school year:
A consolidated report will be drawn up at the end of this process, providing the following elements:
– an inventory of risk representations in the Rouen Normandy Metropolis,
– key elements for mobilization around industrial safety,
– a first draft of a participatory system adapted to the situation,
– proposals for people to participate or proposals for the method of recruiting these people.
Thus, a proposal for a long-term organization will see the light of day by the start of the 2022 academic year, ensuring dialogue between all the players on industrial safety at the scale of the Rouen Normandy Metropolis.
