Potential occupational risks are not always analyzed, as is the impact on the way the work is done.
to benefit from an external perspective, the representative · e · s staff may appoint a consultancy firm at the information meeting on the project.
What right to expertise on projects for the introduction of new technologies?
The right to expertise is open to all companies with a workforce of at least 50 employees. The members of the committee must receive information on the project and its social consequences, as well as a possible adaptation plan prepared by the employer (foreseen in the case of significant and rapid technological changes) at least one month before the consultation of the instance.
To seek expertise on a New Technologies Introduction project, the CHSCT or the CSE must vote during the first meeting of the information-consultation process, a deliberation including:
- The reason for the requested expertise,
by identifying the main changes in the organization of work and operating methods likely to profoundly transform working conditions, as well as the occupational risks of which the project is potentially the bearer
- The choice of the commissioned expertise firm.
- The specifications of the expertise mission.
- The designation of an elected member of the CSE to enforce the deliberation.
CEDAET supports staff representatives so that real work and its transformations are not put aside by focusing too much on the technological aspect and its expected benefits. The duration of an expertise for a new technology introduction project is 45 days. His vote postpones the consultation of the body for 2 months.
How to set up an expertise in the Introduction of New Technologies project with Cédaet
You can express your request directly by email or by phone via the CEDAET website or by directly contacting one of the staff within the firm. We can study with you the relevance of the use of expertise before possibly setting up the approach.
80% of the responsibility for the expertise of the New Technologies Introduction Project lies with the employer, and 20% with the CSE from its operating budget (unless a more favorable agreement is reached).
However, the employer must finance 100% of the expertise when the operating budget of the social and economic committee is insufficient to cover the cost of the expertise and has not resulted in a transfer of annual surplus to the budget intended social and cultural activities during the previous three years (provided for in article L.2312 84 of the Labor Code). This action prevents the CSE from making such a transfer for the next three years.
