It brings together concerned citizens, employees and former employees in hazardous trades, union representatives, workplace and environmental activists, lawyers, scientists… The Henri Pézerat Association is a non-profit and non-governmental organization. Its full name is « Henri Pézerat Association. Work, health, environment ».

Its president is Annie Thébaud-Mony.

Henri Pézerat (1928-2009) is a scientist who fought tirelessly to support victims of exposure to occupational and environmental hazards, to improve working conditions and to ban toxic products from the workplace. He was convinced that one cannot dissociate knowledge production and campaigning for the health, life, and dignity of all those who have to endure an economic « development » which has no respect for human life.
