EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • Danger due to skin contact with chemicals: Mechanics in charge of repairing motoculture machines come into contact with a variety of chemicals. Two categories can be identified: on the one hand, the consumables contained in the machines for their operation (SP gasolines, 2-stroke engine oils or 4-stroke engine oils) and, on the other, the products used by mechanics to lubricate, de-grease and grease, and which are mainly stored in aerosol form. The hazards associated with these chemicals will be most apparent when they are being used. The storage and handling of these products can sometimes constitute a risk (if the product drips onto the container, or if the container is leaking). The possibility of damage linked to the use of chemical products arises above all when these products are used without Personal Protective Equipment. (EN374-standard gloves). Possible damage resulting from skin contact with petroleum products such as gasoline and motor oils is skin irritation, dryness and redness. Some petroleum products are possible carcinogens, such as SP95 and SP98, which are associated with blood and kidney cancers. Used motor oils have been recognized as carcinogens for many years.

 

  • The danger of inhaling chemical compounds: Mechanics repairing motorized cultivation machines may inhale various chemical compounds. Some of these compounds come from the exhaust gases emitted by motorized cultivation machines during certain breakdown diagnostics or post-repair testing phases. The other part comes from the use of volatile products, such as gasoline in the machine's fuel tank, but also from chemicals stored in aerosol form. The risks associated with inhalation of chemical compounds are much greater indoors, in confined spaces with no air circulation, as is often the case in the repair shop. Starting up thermal machines in this environment systematically exposes mechanics, especially if there is no fume extraction system in operation. These fumes contain residues of burnt gasoline (4-stroke) or burnt gasoline and oil (2-stroke). Possible damage resulting from exhaust inhalation includes fatigue, nausea and headaches. More generally, inhalation of chemical compounds is responsible for long-term organ toxicity.

 

  • Noise and high-noise hazards: Mechanics repairing motorized cultivation machines are exposed to noise-related hazards. On the one hand, the start-up of the machines' internal combustion engines generates high levels of nuisance (e.g.: a lawnmower generally emits around 100dB). On the other hand, the use of compressed-air/electroportable tools and machines (e.g. blowgun, impact wrench, screwdriver/screwdriver, etc.) or simply mechanical tools (e.g. hammer) generate high levels of noise pollution. Noise-related hazards will be present from the moment people start working in an environment with more than 80dB. From that point onwards, the seriousness of the risks will depend on two main parameters: exposure time (expressed in hours) and average noise level (expressed in dB). Not wearing hearing protection (helmets, earplugs) is a determining factor in noise exposure. In the short term, noise exposure can generate headaches, tinnitus that can last several hours, and mental fatigue. Over the long term, repeated exposure to high noise levels leads to progressive hearing loss, which most people are unaware of. This loss of hearing is accompanied by other major inconveniences, such as vertigo and chronic tinnitus.

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.
