  • The danger of repetitive movements of the upper limbs when stocking shelves: Stocking shelves in a drugstore involves numerous tasks involving repetitive movements. This is particularly the case when opening product delivery cartons, as well as when stocking shelves in the drugstore. These repetitive movements place particular demands on the upper limbs, especially the hands, elbows and shoulders. The risks induced by repetitive movements are greater if staff work in a cold atmosphere, as is the case in winter. Indeed, like humidity, cold is bad for the joints and will reinforce the risks induced by repetitive movements. What's more, the use of poor-quality tools can increase the risks associated with repetitive movements (e.g. a blade that no longer cuts, forcing the operator to force open packing cartons). Potential damage caused by repetitive gestures during product shelving includes joint pain in the hands, wrists and shoulders, as well as circulatory disorders and muscular pain. Over the long term, repetitive movements can lead to musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limbs (e.g. tendonitis, particularly in the shoulders).


  • Danger of skin contact with cleaning chemicals in the drugstore: When cleaning the drugstore, staff may be exposed to cleaning chemicals through skin contact. Most cleaning products are irritating and harmful to health (GHS07 pictogram: exclamation mark on the bottle). In addition to being irritating and harmful, some may also be toxic (GHS06 pictogram: skull and crossbones), or even Carcinogenic and/or Mutagenic and/or Reprotoxic (GHS08 pictogram: bust of a person).  Risks linked to skin contact with chemical products are mainly present during use, but also during packaging (e.g. dilution in water before use) and storage (e.g. in the event of drips on the can). Risks are present as soon as a product comes into contact with a person's skin. Not wearing Personal Protective Equipment (gloves) is therefore a factor that considerably increases exposure to risks. In the short term, possible damage resulting from skin exposure to cleaning products includes allergenic reactions, burns and skin irritation. Chronic exposure to harmful or CMR products is likely to result in a range of significant long-term health problems, including cancer and/or mutations and/or reproductive disorders.


  • The danger of emotional tension when dealing with customers: The druggist's job involves a certain amount of psychological strain, resulting from the need to conceal feelings and emotions in day-to-day dealings with customers. Indeed, in order to appear "business-like", customers often expect the druggist to be in a good mood and open to conversation, even though the customer himself is sometimes unpleasant, rude or even disrespectful. These risks are particularly present when the druggist is dealing with difficult customers, whether in terms of relationships (rudeness, incivilities, etc.) or demands (waiting time at the cash register, price of products in the store, etc.). These risks are also present when druggists face difficulties in their personal lives, and force themselves to put them aside in order to show themselves to be "business-like" with customers. The main risks are damage to psychological health, such as stress, anxiety, loss of self-confidence and health problems (insomnia).
