(Report RR151 from the Health and Safety Executive)




  • The danger of falling from heights when installing or renovating carpentry: To install a new frame or renovate an old one, carpenters have no choice but to work at the top of buildings. As a result, they are particularly exposed to the risk of falls from height. Falls from height can occur from a means of access at height (ladders, building scaffolding, platforms at the edge of a structure, etc.), or from a structural element (slipping on a ridge purlin or eave purlin, tripping over a rafter, etc.). Firstly, human factors are at the root of these falls: working at height without safe access means, or with poorly installed adapted means (instability on the ground, assembly not in compliance with manufacturer's instructions, etc.). Secondly, meteorological factors such as rain and snow increase the risk of slipping. Wind is a major risk factor, with the possibility of being swept away or jostled suddenly. Not wearing PPE or EPC is a critical factor. Falls from buildings usually result in fractures of one or more bones, sometimes in critical areas (e.g. spine, pelvis, skull), as well as possible head trauma. Whether the carpenter falls inside or outside the building on which he was working, he risks serious injury in all cases, which can have irreversible effects (loss of use of certain limbs), threaten his vital prognosis (coma) or even lead to his death.


  • The danger of manual handling when assembling carpentry components: The carpenter's trade is based on a series of tasks that frequently require manual handling. For example, a timber frame element weighs around 25kg per linear meter, and is likely to be handled by hand during cutting and assembly operations. As for tools, some weigh up to 15kg (e.g. carpenters' sledgehammers) and are handled many times between the workshop and the worksite. For carpenters, manual handling is a daily occurrence. Only the use of handling aids can drastically reduce the drudgery and risks associated with this type of work. As a result, assembling tools and supplies by hand instead of using cranes or hoists is a critical factor. For all manual handling operations that cannot be carried out with handling aids, failure to observe correct handling postures is an aggravating factor. In the short term, manual handling causes muscle and joint pain, particularly in the wrists, arms, shoulders and back. Over the long term, manual handling can lead to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) of the upper limbs, in particular lesions of the spinal column, shoulders (tendinopathy) and wrists (carpal tunnel syndrome).


  • Noise hazards associated with cutting and woodworking operations: Cutting and woodworking using cutting, planing, routing and other machines generate very high levels of noise pollution. What's more, the use of these machines in enclosed spaces (workshops) adds an additional risk factor linked to sound reverberation. Apart from the use of these machines, carpenters may also be subject to noise-related risks, particularly on building sites, but in a less critical way. Noise-related risks depend on sound intensity (expressed in dB) and exposure time (in hours). [End of extract]
