  • Machinery-related hazards: crushing caused by falling loads, overturning equipment or human negligence: Earthworkers use heavy earthmoving equipment such as shovels and mini-shovels. These machines can be a source of crushing in several cases: they contain a load likely to fall, the machine risks overturning (e.g. slope, ditch), or human negligence causes a person to be crushed. Mainly when transporting loads with a mini-excavator, when working on uneven / sloping ground, or in areas with poor visibility. Possible injuries include cuts, fractures, crushed limbs, amputations, infections and even death. To reduce these risks, never take on loads greater than the machines can accept (weight AND volume). Assess the risk of overturning before starting work. It is recommended that on site, personnel be equipped with at least a high-visibility work top (jackets in winter and T-shirts in summer), or even a complete high-visibility suit including reflective pants. Before starting work, it's important to define clearly separated work zones for machinery and passageways for people. Get into the habit of never passing behind any moving machine or vehicle.


  • Noise hazard: Earthworkers have to work in a noisy environment, due to the use of construction equipment: mini excavator, shovel, vehicle, van, truck. The working atmosphere is noisy all year round. The risk is increased by the number of machines operating simultaneously, and by the duration of exposure. In the short term, noise causes auditory fatigue, which can lead to inattention and therefore an increased risk of injury. In the long term, exposure to noise leads to progressive occupational deafness, which most people are unaware of. This deafness is accompanied by numerous undesirable effects: tinnitus, whistling, buzzing, dizziness and migraines. It's important to provide every employee with a variety of hearing protectors, adapted to their individual preferences, to help protect them from noise. Preventive measures can be taken by affixing stickers reminding employees to use hearing protection directly on site machinery.


  • Vibration hazards: Earthworkers are subject to vibration hazards, mainly when operating their earthmoving machines (excavators, mini excavators). The risk is particularly acute during the driving phase, when the terrain is uneven, the driving speed is too high, or the seat is in poor condition or poorly adjusted. Potential damage includes osteoarticular risks, notably tendonitis. Vibrations also lead to progressive vibratory anaesthesia: the pain felt diminishes, but this means that the pathology worsens, leading to a possible loss of manual dexterity, loss of tactile sensitivity, and frequent tingling in the limbs. To reduce the risks associated with vibration, it's essential to choose the least vibrating machine possible, fitted with a good anti-vibration seat, when renewing machines. When working on site, choose the excavator and equipment best suited to the job and the work area. Since vibrations occur mainly during travel, prepare the work area as well as possible by cleaning and levelling it.
