EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • Cutting, jamming and limb-pulling hazards: Landscape gardeners need to use cutting (e.g. circular saws) and drilling (e.g. drills) machines in their work. These machines are equipped with moving cutting parts, which in the event of an accident entails major risks for the people using them. The risks associated with these tools and machines are present as soon as the person is going to use them, but not only. When preparing equipment (e.g. changing a blade on a machine) or when storing equipment after a job (e.g. cleaning a dusty cutting blade), the risks of cuts and tears are always present, albeit to a lesser extent. Cutting and drilling equipment is likely to involve serious accidents such as limb entrapment, deep cuts and/or perforations likely to affect a muscle, tendon, nerve, vein or aorta, or even the tearing off and permanent loss of a limb.

 

  • The danger of awkward postures when landscaping: Landscapers regularly have to adopt awkward postures when carrying out landscaping work. The two main awkward postures for landscaping work are kneeling (e.g. deck renovation/installation) and bending forward (e.g. cutting and drilling materials on a work surface). The adoption of awkward postures is linked to the tasks to be performed, the tools available, but above all to the accessibility of the work area. Other awkward postures include bending the torso, crouching, kneeling, with arms outstretched or in the air. The longer the duration of exposure, the greater the risk of damage. Awkward postures are the cause of various musculoskeletal disorders. In the case of kneeling, the lower limbs are particularly stressed, leading to short-term pain. In the long term, awkward postures contribute to the development of musculoskeletal disorders, in particular tendinopathy and arthropathy.

 

  • Risks associated with repetitive and prolonged movements: When carrying out landscaping work in customers' gardens, landscapers may perform certain tasks involving repetitive gestures. This is particularly the case when it's necessary to use hand tools (e.g. screwdriving). As well as causing short-term pain, repetitive movements can also lead to long-term musculoskeletal disorders. The risks associated with repetitive and prolonged gestures will be present when landscapers use a manual tool in the absence of a machine enabling them to do equivalent work (e.g.: screwdriver in the absence of a screwdriver). The risks induced by repetitive gestures can be more or less significant depending on the work atmosphere. Cold, heat and humidity are aggravating factors, increasing the risk of musculoskeletal disorders. Possible damage caused by repetitive movements during fitting-out work includes joint pain in the hands, wrists and shoulders, as well as circulatory disorders and muscular pain. Over the long term, repetitive movements can lead to musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limbs (e.g. tendonitis, particularly in the shoulders).

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.
