the six criteria used in the professional training account
“Professional clothing”, two words on request emphasized Elisabeth Borne during the presentation of the pension reform. The Prime Minister and the government have indicated that the vocational training credit, nicknamed “C2P”, created in 2015 would be improved, including by better taking into account night shifts, so that more employees can benefit from it.
The “C2P” allows workers to collect points for each year of exposure to the six hardness criteria: work in a noisy environment, repetitive movements (chain), night work, in successive changing teams, in a hyperbaric environment (ie underground or underwater). and at extreme temperatures.
A suspicious device, but limited results
With these acquired rights, the employee can finance retraining, go part-time or take advantage of early retirement by converting his points into quarterly pensions. Only if the device appears suspicious are the results limited. Since 2015, 12,000 employees have used it, of which almost 10,000 to take advantage of early departures. This represents barely 1% of the two million accounts opened by companies.
These low figures are a failure, for which Emmanuel Macron is partly responsible. Indeed, in 2017, four of the ten deprivation criteria (carrying heavy loads, painful postures, mechanical vibrations and exposure to hazardous chemical agents) were dropped because the exposure threshold was considered “unquantifiable” by employers.
Enhanced medical follow-up
However, according to Éric Chevée, vice president of the Confederation of Small and Medium Enterprises (CPME), the disappearance of these criteria has slowed down the development of C2P. “There is no relationship between the number of accounts created between 2015 and 2017 and the feeds created today based on the six criteria that apply in C2P,” he explains to Europe 1.
In addition to improving C2P, the pension reform plans to allocate a billion euros for the prevention of professional wear and tear related to painful postures, carrying heavy loads and mechanical vibrations. Affected workers will benefit from enhanced medical surveillance and easier access to professional retraining.
