EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • The danger of pinching and crushing during repairs in the workshop: When diagnosing a bike, or carrying out a repair, the rotating parts of cycles can cause pinching to repairers. Parts that can cause pinching include wheel spokes, chains, front and rear derailleurs, and so on. In almost all cases, these pinches involve the hands, and more particularly the fingers. The risk of pinching is greatest when working with the crankset, such as removing wheel bearings, adjusting derailleurs or changing transmission parts. Failure to wear suitable mechanical gloves during diagnostic and repair work (EN388 mark) increases the risk of serious damage in the event of pinched limbs. In most cases, pinched limbs will cause haematomas, accompanied by severe pain. In rarer cases, if these pinches are very intense, the result can be crushed limbs, leading to fractures. Finally, if these pinches give rise to wounds, they are likely to become infected if not disinfected with a suitable product.

 

  • The danger of blunt parts and puncture wounds: When repairing bicycles with braking or gear shifting problems, bike store mechanics will have to work on these cable-operated mechanisms. If these metal cables are old or in poor condition, they can become frayed, and are then liable to pierce the mechanics' skin. This is a source of both physical and, above all, biological risk. The risks associated with these frayed cables, and more generally with any blunt parts found on a bike, will be present if repairers don't wear anti-shredding mechanical gloves (EN388 mark). As anti-pitting gloves can be thick and make it difficult to handle screws and nuts, it is preferable to use them when working specifically on frayed cables or blunt parts. The risks associated with pricks caused by old cables and other blunt parts include contamination by certain viruses and/or bacteria. The best-known of these is tetanus, whose symptoms include cramps, muscle spasms, difficulty swallowing, convulsions, headaches, fever, changes in blood pressure and accelerated heart rate.

 

  • Handling hazards for workshop staff: In the workshop of a bicycle store, repairers may have to carry various loads of varying weights on a daily basis. This may be to set up bicycles on their workshop stands (particularly electric bikes, which are heavier than traditional bikes), to carry bicycle parts after dismantling or before reassembly, etc. The manual handling of bicycles can be very time-consuming. Manual handling is a source of health hazards. The risks associated with manual handling will be present on a daily basis, but will be more or less significant depending on a number of criteria: handling distance, ease of movement in the workshop (cluttered floors, steps to climb up or down, etc.), the weight to be handled, and the way in which loads are carried (good/bad posture, use of handling aids or not, etc.). In the short term, the possible risks associated with handling are pain, particularly muscular pain, mainly affecting the upper limbs. In the long term, manual handling can lead to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD), affecting muscles, tendons and nerves in the upper limbs (shoulders, elbows, wrists) and spine (back pain, neck pain and lumbago).

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.
