EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • The danger of plaster and insulation dust: In their day-to-day work, plasterers mainly use two types of solid materials: plaster (mainly in board form) and insulation (mainly in roll form, such as rock wool/glass wool). The main problem associated with these two materials is the emission of dust, generating various risks for the respiratory system. The risks associated with plaster and insulation dust arise mainly when plasterers have to work in enclosed spaces, with little or no ventilation. Dust emissions are particularly high during material cutting operations, notably with power tools (e.g. circular saws). Dust from these materials can be irritating to the respiratory tract, or allergenic. In particular, they cause allergic rhinitis and inflammation of the nasal mucosa. Over the long term, the accumulation of dust in the lungs leads to pulmonary lesions known as fibrosis (the best-known fibrosis being silicosis caused by silica, notably present in new-generation insulation materials such as fused quartz glass wool).

 

  • Handling hazards: Before working on site, plasterers have to transport their raw materials (e.g. BA13 plasterboard, plaster) as well as their work tools (laser, drill, screwdriver, plastering knife, etc.). What's more, these handling operations take place in more or less accessible places (e.g. on the floor of a house). Finally, when the job site is tidied up, the tools have to be handled again. The risks associated with manual handling are present every day for plasterboard workers. Risks are increased according to several criteria: handling distance, ease of access (upstairs, downstairs, etc.), weight to be handled, as well as the way loads are carried (good/bad posture, use of handling aids or not, etc.). Manual handling is responsible for short-term back pain, as well as long-term Musculoskeletal Disorders of the upper limbs: shoulder tendinopathy, epicondylitis of the elbows, carpal tunnel syndrome of the wrists.

 

  • The danger of cutting/piercing/crushing tools: In the course of their work, plasterers need to cut materials, perforate supports and drive fasteners. To do this, they use hand tools (e.g. hammers, cutters) as well as portable tools (nailer, perforator, screwdriver, etc.). The use of these tools involves the risk of cuts, punctures and crushing of limbs. The risks are present as soon as these tools are used by the plasterer. The likelihood of accidents increases when using tools in a hurry, while distracted, or when doing several things at once (e.g. answering the phone). The risks are increased if the person is not wearing PPE such as protective gloves. These tools can cause cuts, wounds that can become infected if not disinfected, bruising, crushing of limbs, fractures, haemorrhaging, and even severing of limbs.

"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.
