  • The danger of cuts when opening cardboard boxes and packaging: In discount stores, opening cardboard boxes and various types of packaging is part of the daily routine for employees. To do so, they use sharp objects such as cutters or scissors. The main risk is when opening cardboard boxes, using cutters or other unsuitable sharp objects. Possible injuries include cuts, severing and open wounds, particularly to fingers. In view of the large number of cartons that stockists have to open over the course of a year, it's a good idea to equip yourself with a trigger knife with a retractable blade. It's both a versatile tool (for cutting cardboard, plastic packaging and film) and a safe one. Avoid cutters with snap-off blades because of the risk of breakage and projection. If a cutting tool does not have a safe equivalent, provide personnel with cut-resistant gloves.


  • The danger of MSDs linked to opening packing cartons: Discount stores need to open large quantities of packing cartons upstream, with repetitive movements. This entails the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders. The risk is mainly present when opening packaging cartons, using cutters or other objects that cut poorly or are unsuitable. Damage can be caused by tightening of hand muscles and wrist tendons, leading to cramps and tendonitis. Avoid using knives and scissors, and even more so if they are not ergonomically designed and/or sharp, as this increases the risk of Musculoskeletal Disorders. Equip yourself with a good-quality trigger knife with a retractable blade. It's a versatile and effective tool if it's of good quality.


  • The danger of being struck and crushed by hand-held handling equipment: When loading and unloading heavy goods vehicles, discount stores mainly use handling equipment. Employees are exposed to the risk of being crushed by these machines. The risk is mainly present during loading and unloading operations at docks using handling equipment. The damage that can be caused is collisions and crushing by vehicles, which can result in bruising, fractures, crushed limbs and even death. To reduce these risks, the first measure is to clearly separate the aisles for pedestrians from those for handling equipment, with signs on the floor. Personnel using forklift-trucks must be trained beforehand by passing the appropriate CACES certification. It is important to always drive the forklift according to the instructions learnt during CACES training: forks at ground level, fork tips at shin height, audible warning in low-visibility areas, respect of maximum laden weight, etc.


  • The danger of manual handling when stocking shelves: When stocking shelves, warehouse employees have to handle large quantities of products, which represents a considerable weight. The risk is greatest when new products are put on the shelves. The risk is proportional to the quantity of products handled and their weight.
