EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • The danger of prolonged computer work in architectural design: Architects' work today requires the daily use of computers. This is linked to the evolution of the profession: all building design work (calculations, plans, etc.) is assisted, if not entirely carried out 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 falling from heights during site visits: When architects are out in the field, and in particular when monitoring construction sites, they are sometimes required to access spaces located at heights, in areas where there are no railings. The situations are potentially numerous. For example, visiting one or more floors of buildings that are not yet waterproof or windproof, and where it is possible to find oneself at the edge of the void without a physical barrier. As far as site visits are concerned, falls from height are more likely to occur on bad-weather days. Rain, snow and ice on certain surfaces increase the risk of falling from the edge of the void. Wind is also a major risk factor, as it can carry a person into the void, especially when working at height. Damage caused by falls from height can include impact with the ground, with an object below, or with another person on the site. This can result in contusions, fractures, internal and/or external haemorrhaging, cranial trauma which can plunge the person into a coma, irreversible damage (e.g. spinal column leading to quadriplegia) or even death.

 

  • The danger of emotional tension for all the firm's staff: Working in an architectural firm is accompanied by a number of situations that generate emotional tension, brought on by the stress of the job (responsibility for high value projects) but also by a certain lack of recognition, due to the fact that mistakes are always emphasized, whereas successes are sometimes seen as simply due. There are countless situations in which emotional tensions can arise, and we can't list them all here. Generally speaking, the people with whom the architectural firm will have to deal will play a major role. When these people are difficult to deal with (bad behavior, unrealistic demands in terms of deadlines, prices, etc.), the risks are much greater. The possible damage caused by sustained emotional tension over time is a deterioration in the working atmosphere, irritability, stress and anxiety.

Jean Claude Parmentier

"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.
