  • The danger of repetitive manual movements with scissors: Barbers and hairdressers use scissors every day to cut hair and beards. The use of these scissors requires repetitive finger and hand movements, which are a major source of musculoskeletal disorders. The longer the scissors are used, the greater the risk. Possible damage includes musculoskeletal disorders of the fingers of the hand carrying the scissors. These include joint problems (tendonitis). To reduce the risks associated with the repetitive manual movements of the fingers, it is essential to use equipment of good technical quality: cutting capacity, quality of materials used. These tools must also be ergonomically designed, so that you can work comfortably for long periods without experiencing pain. Tools must be regularly maintained to preserve their cutting power and reduce unnecessary effort.


  • The danger of cuts caused by sharp tools: Barbers and hairdressers are required to use and maintain sharp tools such as scissors, razors and hair clippers on a daily basis, representing a significant risk of cuts. The risk of cuts is present when using these tools, but also, and above all, when cleaning them. This is a very common risk in the men's hairdressing sector, not least because of the presence of manual razors with razor-sharp blades. Possible damage includes cuts that can become infected if not disinfected, and open wounds that can lead to serious bleeding (vein / aorta). To reduce these risks, it's essential to be careful when using, cleaning and storing sharp tools, especially manual shavers with sharp blades.


  • The danger of long standing and trampling: Barbers / hairdressers are particularly exposed to postural risks, especially the long standing static posture. What's more, the little walking barbers / hairdressers do during their working day is trampling, which amplifies these risks. Barbers are exposed to this risk on a daily basis. Exposure is increased by the amount of time spent cutting hair and beards. Possible damage is mainly back problems, affecting the spine, characterized by pain and functional discomfort (stiffness, clumsiness or loss of strength) that can become disabling (lumbago, epicondylitis, carpal syndrome). In the legs, barbers may experience a sensation of heavy legs, varicose veins and edema of the lower limbs.


  • The danger of working with awkward postures: Barbers / hairdressers have to adopt awkward postures when performing cuts, such as arching the back, leaning the head forward, having the elbows raised almost to shoulder height, stretching the arms, and doing so repeatedly throughout the day. The constraints are greater for beard cuts than for haircuts, as it is necessary to arch the back to work all areas of the face.
