EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT:

 

  • The danger of heavy psychological burdens: Ambulance drivers have to deal with patients who may be suffering from serious pathologies, have had serious accidents, or even have died. The risk is present all year round, and increases in proportion to the severity of the patient's condition (suffering, dementia, death) and the frequency with which they are brought into contact with these patients. Possible damage includes a deterioration in the working environment, stress, anxiety, irritability, depression and even burn-out. What's more, the effects of psychological trauma accumulate over time, which can lead to the development of a state of compassionate (vicarious) stress. Training in the psychological aspects of the job (including coping techniques) is available. Personal exchanges and support between colleagues and with the hierarchy are important for overcoming difficult moments. Psychological help and counselling are also available, as are discussion groups.

 

  • Handling hazards: Ambulance drivers are called upon to carry out heavy lifting: handling patients, loading them onto stretchers, installing them in the vehicle, lifting and carrying equipment. The risk is present all year round, especially when handling heavy and/or injured people who are moving with difficulty or losing consciousness. The damage can include long-term musculoskeletal disorders such as back pain, cercivalgia, cruralgia and sciatica caused by herniated discs, as well as joint pain in the shoulders, knees and ankles. Use mechanical or manual aids, particularly for patient handling.

 

  • The danger of maintaining a seated posture for long periods: This constraint is linked to the profession of ambulance driver. They have to maintain a seated posture while driving their ambulance, and do so for long periods. Every day for ambulance drivers. The risk increases in proportion to the number of driving hours accumulated during the ambulance driver's career. Possible injuries include Overweight (lack of activity), back pain, neck pain, cruralgia, herniated disc (sciatica), joint pain, muscle pain, numbness. The seat and controls (steering wheel height/pedal distance) must be ideally adjusted in relation to the driver.
     
  • The danger of using detergents and disinfectants: Ambulance drivers use detergents and disinfectants to clean surfaces and maintain equipment. These products, whether acidic or alkaline, contain surfactants (irritants) and aldehydes (skin irritants and sensitizers, causing respiratory symptoms through inhalation). Risks are mainly present when using disinfectants/detergents, and when packaging/storing these products. The main risk is skin contact, which can lead to burns, skin irritation and allergic sensitization (eczema, asthma). There is also a risk of intoxication through inhalation or absorption.

 

  • The danger of contamination by a sick or injured person: Ambulance drivers come into close contact with sick and/or injured people during ambulance transport. These people are a potential source of disease transmission. The risk arises from contact with blood or biological fluids on injured skin (puncture, cut), or from splashes onto mucous membranes (eyes, mouth).

"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.
