EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • The danger of prolonged sitting at the workstation: The job of an accountant involves spending a great deal of time in a seated position, working at a computer or on a ledger. For the overwhelming majority of accountants, this means sitting in a prolonged static position for almost seven hours a day, every day of the working week. Remaining in this static position is a vector of various physical health risks. The risks associated with working in a prolonged seated position are present on a daily basis for accountants. Certain risk factors, such as not taking regular breaks during the working day to change posture (e.g. standing up), or working with unsuitable or badly-adjusted office furniture (e.g. desk chair too high or desk too low, forcing you to bend forward) are aggravating factors. Prolonged sitting can lead to various musculoskeletal disorders, such as neck stiffness and pain, sometimes with the onset of osteoarthritis, muscular pain in the trapezius area of the upper back, as well as varicose veins and venous circulation disorders. Lack of movement also has an effect on heart fitness and the shape of the body as a whole.

 

  • Prolonged work on computer screens: Today's accountants need to use computers on a daily basis, as most company accounts are now managed by software. This daily use of computers results in prolonged exposure to screens, which represents a source of short-term physical risk. Long-term physical risks have yet to be demonstrated. The risks associated with computer work depend on a number of factors: distance from the screen, brightness of the screen and of the workroom, type of screen used (LCD, OLED, cathode-ray, etc.). If you don't take a break to rest your eyes during the working day, staring into the distance increases the risk of visual fatigue, discomfort and loss of concentration. The main possible risks associated with prolonged computer screen use in the short term are fatigue, irritability, headaches, blurred vision, eyestrain and dry eyes. The use of close-up vision when working on a computer could potentially favour certain vision disorders, but this has not yet been demonstrated.

 

  • The danger of temporary work overloads: Accountancy firm staff may be subject to occasional work overloads due to a peak in activity. In the accounting profession, the tax period from January to May is particularly conducive to this. However, excessive work rates, maintained over a relatively long period of time, can give rise to a number of psychosocial risks for certain employees. The risks associated with work overloads in accounting firms are correlated to a ratio between the number of client companies to be handled simultaneously, and the number of staff available to deal with them. It is important for the accounting firm to determine this ratio and not exceed it, or exceed it only in exceptional cases, so as not to exhaust its staff. The possible damage caused by overwork is a deterioration in the working atmosphere, irritability, stress and/or anxiety, lifestyle problems (e.g.: snacking leading to obesity, insomnia linked to mental ruminations, etc.), increased risk of attraction and dependency on psychotropic substances offering comfort (medication, tobacco, drugs), or even Burn-Out.

"The document, of high quality and customizable, is an excellent starting point for a topic that often takes up a lot of time. Thank you also for listening to our needs and the customer follow-up!"

"High-quality service at a very competitive price - the company fully adapted to my business and its multiple risks. This document was also reviewed by the labor inspection, which approved the quality of the work. I recommend."

I recommend the occupational risk assessment documents for their ease of use (Excel workbook) and the relevance of risks listed by profession.
