  • The danger of psychological stress: Homecare workers have to bear a heavy psychological burden because of the people they have to care for: people at the end of their lives, people suffering from serious illnesses (e.g. Alzheimer's), etc. This psychological stress is heightened by the fact that they are alone in the person's home. This psychological burden is compounded by the fact of being alone in the person's home. The risk is present all year round, and increases in proportion to the seriousness of the condition of the person being cared for (state of health, pathology, etc.). The possible damage is a deterioration in the working environment, stress, anxiety, feelings of isolation, irritability, insomnia, depression and even burn-out.


  • Handling hazards: Homecare workers have to do a great deal of handling in the course of their work. This can be related to care tasks (toileting, lifting and putting people to bed, etc.) or household tasks (carrying groceries, handling various objects when tidying up, etc.). Handling is responsible for 31% of workplace accidents in the homecare profession. The risks associated with manual handling are present all year round for homecare workers, as manual handling is an integral part of their profession, and is present in the majority of tasks they carry out. All recognized occupational pathologies among homecare workers are musculoskeletal disorders, notably upper limb tendonitis and carpal tunnel syndrome.


  • The danger of using cleaning products: Homecare workers frequently use cleaning products in the course of their work. This is mainly the case when cleaning the homes of beneficiaries. The products used are varied (floor cleaners, window cleaners, bathroom cleaners, kitchen cleaners, etc.), as are the risks involved. The risks associated with chemical products are mainly present during their use, but also during packaging and storage. The main risk is skin contact, which can lead to burns, skin irritation and allergic sensitization (eczema, asthma). There is also a risk of intoxication through inhalation or absorption. Finally, there is the risk of splashes into the eyes, which can lead to eye burns.


  • The danger of awkward postures: Homecare workers are required to work in awkward postures when cleaning and tidying the home (bent back, leaning forward, bending down to pick up objects, etc.). These awkward postures are mainly encountered when homecare workers are cleaning and tidying in hard-to-reach places: nooks and crannies, under furniture, high areas, etc. The main damage caused by awkward postures is back or musculo-tendinous disorders, as well as Musculo-Skeletal Disorders.
