Visiting researchers


The CIECST welcomes researchers from various backgrounds who wish to further their work on occupational health or to develop it. The Chair provides a research framework which encourages exchanges and comparisons across cultures and disciplines, and is likely to foster collaborations between researchers and between research teams. The aim is also to get to know and make known the approaches of international, national and New Aquitaine region researchers in the fields of occupational health and the raising of ethical awareness.

Currently she holds the position of ergonomic engineer at Pôle Santé Travail Métropole Nord (PST). Together with occupational health actors, and within the framework of labour law, and the service project of occupational health plan (PST, implementing the fourth regional occupational health plan (PRST 4), she supports companies in designing and transforming their organizations, in the Region of Hauts de France region.

Throughout her work as an ergonomist, she has developed an additional interest in labour law which has led to a doctoral thesis prepared within the EREDS research team  attached to the CRDP at the Faculty of Law at the University of Lille. In March 2022, Nadia defended her thesis on: “Prevention law in the light of labour sciences: law and regulation of real work”. Regulation is an operative notion that translates on the scale of the real, the principle of adapting work to the Worker (fitting work to the human), and includes a developmental vision of health, as defined by the World Health Organisation (WHO).
