In the Moroccan employee population, the rate of workplace accidents is one of the highest in the world. Previous work has shown that for the victims the consequences of these accidents are often diverse and serious, but none of these studies has been interested in contributing to the psychosociological and behavioral characterization of the victims. Using a questionnaire sent to 82 Moroccan victims, and whose responses were statically studied by a Multiple Correspondence Analysis (MCA), we developed a typology of the qualitative characterization of all the victims studied. The results showed that among 26 qualitative variables estimated in victims, only six variables participated significantly in the typology of victims studied. The employee's relationship with his work colleagues, the relationship with his direct manager, the possibility of a career in his workplace, the presence - or absence - of the pleasure of working, the degree of precision required by the work, and the presence or absence of emotional burdens in the victim. Thus, only one characteristic of these victims could be considered as coming from a historical past of the victim, that is to say before the working period of his work: the possibility of having emotional charges. The other four characteristics can be developed in the victim before or during the work period.
Self-esteem is a feeling that an individual feels towards himself resulting in an assessment made of the individual in relation to his own value. Good self-esteem is important in life. However, certain life events can lower it. Among the employee, a work accident could be one. Thus, the present work is interested in the evaluation of this esteem in salaried workers victims of a work accident and in evaluating the correlation of this state of esteem with factors supposed to be components of self-esteem. The esteem status of 71 victims was assessed using the Rosenberg scale. The correlation of this state with the variables studied is evaluated based on the responses to a questionnaire developed taking into account certain psychosocial variables.Statistical processing of the data collected shows that all the variables studied help to differentiate four esteem groups. In the group of victims with very low self-esteem, this state is associated with a significant change in nervousness after the event, a feeling of a slight decrease in the gaze of others towards the victim after the accident, and the victims have a secondary education level. For the category of victims with low self-esteem, this state is associated with a low change in the state of nervousness after the accident, the state of the gaze of others towards the victim who was before the accident and the victim is university educated.
