EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • The danger of using perchloroethylene: Perchloroethylene is a chlorinated solvent often used in dry cleaners to clean clothes, because it is effective, inexpensive to use and non-flammable. The danger is present when using the product, both through skin contact and through exposure of the respiratory tract. Possible damage includes skin dryness, respiratory problems, nausea and dizziness in the event of repeated inhalation. In addition, the product may cause gynaecological disorders and fertility problems in pregnant women. Finally, it is suspected of being carcinogenic. The best way to reduce the risks associated with this product is to replace it with an alternative such as Siloxane D5. Finding an alternative to this product is all the more important as the use of perchloroethylene will be banned in dry cleaners by 2022, and in machines over 10 years old by 2021.

 

  • The danger of using trichloroethylene or substitutes: Trichloroethylene is a product often found in dry cleaners. Used to remove difficult stains, it has been banned in the industry since 2016. The danger is present when using the product, both through skin contact, but also through exposure of the respiratory tract. Trichloroethylene is a CMR product, carcinogenic to humans and liable to induce genetic abnormalities. In the event of skin contact, it can cause skin irritation. Inhalation causes drowsiness and dizziness. Tetrachloroethylene is a CMR-classified product, and its use is prohibited. An alternative must be found, such as EnSolv. Whichever substitute you use, always follow the instructions on the product container, especially those concerning PPE.

 

  • Aliphatic hydrocarbons: Aliphatic hydrocarbons (KWL, ACTREL) are petroleum solvents used as stain removers (example of use: spraying into the machine drum). The risk arises during use, when these products are touched, and when vapors are inhaled. Skin contact causes skin dryness, predisposing to dermatitis. Repeated or prolonged inhalation leads to symptoms such as headaches and dizziness. In high concentrations, they can cause disorders of the nervous and digestive systems. To reduce risks, make sure you comply with product use instructions. In particular, always wear the PPE required for the use or preparation of these products.

 

  • The danger of using detergents: Laundry workers use chemical cleaning agents called detergents, which contain surfactants, alkaline agents, sequestering agents, wetting agents, proteolytic enzymes, builders and excipients. Risks arise from physical contact, use and storage. The main risks are skin irritation, allergenic reactions and burns to the skin, but also to the eyes in the event of splashing. Be sure to follow the instructions for product use.
     
  • The danger of using products to remove rust: Dry cleaners use products such as hydrofluoric acid to remove rust.

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.
