Abstract

Résumé: Cet article étudie pour la première fois en Tunisie le rôle du syndicat dans la détermination de la valeur statistique de la vie humaine liée aux travaux dangereux et mortels. En utilisant des données originales à partir de la Caisse nationale de la sécurité sociale (CNSS), nous avons prouvé l’existence des écarts salariaux pour les travaux dangereux. Le syndicat joue un rôle très important dans la détermination des primes salariales pour le risque d’accident. Il en résulte une valeur de la vie statistique, au moins, deux fois plus élevée en présence du syndicat qu’en cas de son absence. Cependant, ces valeurs demeurent beaucoup plus faibles que les estimations menées dans les pays développés. Cette étude pourrait fournir des résultats très utiles pour les décideurs afin de réduire le risque de décès en Tunisie.
