EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • The danger of using plaster: Facade builders use plaster to restore facades. These coatings are composed of a binder (lime and cement), mineral fillers (limestone sand or quartz), coloring pigments and water-repellent and plasticizing additives. The fact that plasters are highly alkaline and contain silica means that they are likely to give rise to significant health risks. The risks associated with plasters are present during their preparation in the mixer, as opening the bags of plaster releases dust, but also during the application of the plaster by spraying onto the substrate, during finishing work, and finally when tidying up the worksite. Coatings are irritants and can reach the pulmonary alveoli. Plaster dust is a respiratory hazard (rhinitis, asthma, altered respiratory function such as chronic bronchitis and emphysema). The alkalinity of wet plasters causes skin lesions, burns, cracks, fissures, irritation and eczema. There's also a risk of eye irritation.

 

  • Falling from heights: Facade restoration workers have to work at heights during restoration work. To do this, they use scaffolding, ladders and sometimes platforms, which they have to move around on, leading to significant risks of falls from height, with potentially fatal consequences. Falls from heights are the cause of many accidents in the façade restoration profession. The risk of falls is greater if the structure has not been properly erected. Another possibility is that the scaffolding used is unsuitable for the job, poorly stabilized or poorly anchored to the structure. If platforms are overloaded and/or cluttered, the risk also increases. Last but not least, lack of safe access to the platform, and the absence of a guardrail or, failing that, a harness with a fall arrest system, are also major risk factors. Damage caused by falls from height can include impact with the ground, with an object below, or with another person on the site. This can result in bruising, fractures, internal and/or external haemorrhaging, head trauma that can plunge the person into a coma, irreversible damage (e.g. spinal column leading to quadriplegia) or even death.

 

  • Hazards associated with mechanical stripping and the release of stripping particles: Facade builders mainly use mechanical stripping to prepare surfaces for restoration. The risks associated with this operation lie in the health-endangering dust and residues that may be released by stripping tools (e.g. high-pressure cleaners / chisels). The risk depends mainly on the type of surface on which the paint stripper will be working. Typically, mechanical stripping of surfaces such as granite or sandstone releases crystalline silica, which is harmful by inhalation. In the short term, the accumulation of crystalline silica in the nose causes allergic rhinitis and inflammation of the nasal mucosa. In the long term, crystalline silica can damage the respiratory tract, causing pleural lesions, pulmonary fibrosis and bronchial and lung cancer.

 

  • The danger of manual handling: Facade workers have to carry out a great deal of handling throughout the working day. The heaviest items to be handled include bags of plaster and metal elements for scaffolding erection.

"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.
