Les fonctions ambivalentes de l’alcool en milieu de travail : bon objet et mauvais objet

Abstract : Both good and bad objects : The ambivalent functions of alcohol in the workplaceThe social construction of the alcohol/work problematics mainly deals with the image of the chronic alcoholic or the inebriety states, tackled as troubles of the production order. In order to widen the anaysis, we study here various types of the alcohol uses together with their main functions. Method : This action research is based on individual (25) and collective (6) dialogic interviews exploring professional and consumerist trajectories articulated with the analysis of work. Results : the alcohol consumption is a paradoxical behavior : it aims at preventing from risk at work and is, at the same time, a resource in front of the work proofs. The typology of its professional functions distinguishes ananesthesis, stimulation, recovery, the maintenance of professional bonds. Conclusion : alcohol consumption, a chemical stimulus for action, is narrowly linked to the organisational and work regulation features.
