  • The danger of repetitive movements with high-effort movements: Cheesemongers working in sales and cashiering are required to carry out important repetitive gestures with great effort. The first is when cutting the cheese for the customer, since cutting the product requires a great deal of force. The second is during checkout, when the operator has to pull and push the products towards and away from the till. The risk is present all year round for checkout staff. In particular, it depends on the time spent at the checkout, the quantity of objects pulled/pushed and the weight involved. Possible damage includes Musculoskeletal disorders (formerly known as periarticular affections) in the upper limbs: wrists (carpal tunnel syndrome), elbows (epicondylitis), shoulders (tendonitis).


  • The danger of cuts when cutting cheese: Before customers can be cashed in, the cheeses have to be cut to the size they require. To do this, cheesemongers use extremely sharp knife blades, or even high-powered cutting machines, which can entail considerable physical risks. The risk is present all year round for staff in charge of cashing and therefore cutting cheese. The risk is proportional to the quantity of cheese cut in a day, and to the cutting equipment used. Possible damage includes back problems, particularly to the spine. The most frequent injuries are Musculoskeletal Disorders affecting muscles, tendons and nerves in the upper limbs (shoulders, elbows, wrists). These upper-limb MSDs account for 92% of occupational illnesses in the food retail sector.


  • The danger of manual handling during shelf-stacking: During shelf-stacking operations, cheesemongers have to handle large wheels of cheese, which represents a considerable cumulative weight. 24% of workplace accidents in local food stores occur during the handling of objects. The risk is mainly present when new products are put on the shelves. The risk is proportional to the quantity of products handled and the weight involved. Possible injuries include back problems, particularly of the spinal column. The most frequent injuries are Musculoskeletal Disorders affecting muscles, tendons and nerves in the upper limbs (shoulders, elbows, wrists). These upper-limb MSDs account for 92% of occupational illnesses in the food retail sector.


  • The danger of awkward postures - crouching or forced extension: Store shelving staff have to work in awkward postures such as kneeling to fill the lower shelves, or in forced extension to fill the upper shelves. Mainly when stocking shelves, when it comes to feeding the bottom or top shelves of the store. The risk is proportional to the time spent and the weight handled. Possible damage includes joint pain (knees), circulatory problems, back pain and muscle aches.
