EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • Dangers associated with dental procedures, and with cleaning and disinfecting surgical instruments: Dentists and/or assistants are likely to use syringes and needles, and to sustain injuries caused by sharp or rotating medical tools. In addition, any splashes may spread infections during medical procedures. Accidents frequently occur during dental procedures. This is due to the various biological fluids (blood, saliva, abscesses, nasal secretions, coughing or sneezing) of people in the dental chair. Possible damage is the transmission of pathogens from the person being cared for to the nursing staff. In particular: viral hepatitis B, C, AIDS, viral or bacterial ENT or lung infections). To reduce these risks, the first rule is strict adherence to good hygiene practices. Secondly, strict compliance with PPE and instructions for use.

 

  • Chemical hazards: Dental surgeons and/or assistants are required to use chemicals, particularly anesthetics. In addition, disinfectants, detergents and antiseptics are regularly used in the practice. Finally, glues, cements and resins are also used. The risk is mainly present during patient management, when anesthetics, glues, cements and/or resins are used. The risk is also present after cleaning with disinfectants and/or detergents. Anesthetics mainly cause skin and lung irritation. Detergents and disinfectants mainly cause skin irritation. Glues, cements and resins mainly cause allergies (contact), rhinitis and asthma (inhalation). To reduce these risks, make sure you wear PPE strictly and follow the instructions for its use. Make sure you follow the instructions for use of the chemical products used in your practice. It is important to ask the supplier of each product to provide safety data sheets when ordering, and to keep them available.

 

  • The danger of awkward postures: Dental surgeons and/or assistants are required to work in an asymmetrical standing posture, with their arms bent forward, while performing repetitive movements when working in the dental chair. The risk arises mainly when working in the dental chair, providing dental care to patients. Musculoskeletal disorders are widespread in the profession. These include Dorso-Lumbago, Cervicalgia, Tendipopathies of the upper limbs (shoulders-elb), carpal tunnel syndromes, and venous insufficiency linked to standing and walking.

 

  • Dangers associated with the use of X-ray equipment, ultraviolet light and lasers: Dental surgeons and/or assistants may be required to use X-rays (X-rays), ultraviolet light (polymerization of composites) and lasers. Mainly when taking X-rays. The closer the staff are to the patient during x-rays, the greater the risk. Radiation doses accumulate over a lifetime. For pregnant women, the possible damage from X-rays is malformation of the embryo in utero. For other people, cancers (mainly thyroid cancer) and malformations in family offspring are possible. Ultraviolet rays and lasers cause eye disorders and damage.

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.
