EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • Noise hazard: mechanics regularly use electro-portable or compressed-air tools (blowers, impact wrenches, screwdrivers, etc.), as well as power tools (grinders, welding machines, etc.), which generate high levels of noise pollution. The risk is greatest when using the noisiest tools, such as blowguns, impact wrenches and grinders. The risk is increased according to two parameters: the average noise level (expressed in dB) and the exposure time. These two parameters can be used to calculate the daily exposure level over an eight-hour period. In the short term, noise exposure can generate headaches, tinnitus and fatigue. Over the long term, exposure to high noise levels leads to progressive hearing loss, which most people are unaware of. This is accompanied by other inconveniences such as vertigo and chronic tinnitus.

 

  • The danger of skin contact with used fluids: Mechanics come into contact with consumables when dismantling vehicles for repairs. These include gasoline and diesel fuel, engine and gearbox oils, brake fluid, power steering fluid, coolant and windshield washer fluid. Each of these products has its own specific characteristics, but is either harmful, toxic or CMR. The risk is present all year round for mechanics, especially when it's necessary to dismantle parts containing or having been in contact with these various consumables. The damage caused varies according to the products in contact with the skin. The first symptoms are often redness, itching or burning. Dermatitis, eczema, cracks, fissures and/or desquamation (peeling skin) may then appear. Finally, in the event of repeated exposure to products classified as CMR, cancers, mutations and reprotoxic problems are possible.

 

  • The danger of awkward postures, especially standing and trampling: Mechanics have to work standing up with very little movement for almost all of their working hours. This awkward posture, maintained for many hours, is a source of long-term physical damage in automotive professions. The risk is present every day for vehicle repair personnel. It increases in proportion to the number of vehicles that need to be repaired in a day. Standing and walking can cause back pain in the short term, particularly muscular pain. Over the long term, repeated trampling is responsible for various musculoskeletal disorders.

 

  • Arm-in-the-air hazards: Mechanics are sometimes called upon to work with their arms in the air when carrying out repairs on vehicles mounted on elevators or other types of lifting equipment. The risk arises mainly when dismantling vehicles at height, where hands must be raised to or above the face. The risk is heightened if the position is exerted for prolonged periods and/or requires the use of considerable force. Musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limbs, particularly in the shoulder area where tendonitis can occur, are the main types of damage. Periarticular disorders in general are recognized as occupational diseases in certain automotive professions.

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.
