EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • Handling hazards: Breeders may have to handle heavy loads (feed bags, straw) over varying distances. Possible injuries include musculoskeletal disorders, lumbago, sciatica, sprains and strains of the ankles and knees. These risks increase when working in hot, cold or damp environments. If there are many items to carry, or if the weight is considerable, use handling equipment if the location allows (e.g. hand truck). Reminder of essential handling rules: heavy loads should always be carried at abdomen height. Always reach for loads on the ground, bending your knees and keeping your back straight.

 

  • The danger of repetitive movements: Breeders may be required to make numerous repetitive gestures which can lead to Musculoskeletal Disorders over the long term. This is particularly the case when a task involves repeating the same gestures many times in a row, many times a year. Overloading the upper limbs (wrist, shoulder, elbow) leads to tendon damage (rotator cuff tendinopathy in the shoulder, epicondylitis and epitrochleitis in the elbow) or carpal tunnel syndrome (compression of the median radial nerve in the wrist). To reduce these risks, see if it is possible to change the way certain tasks are performed to limit repetitive gestures (e.g. use of machines instead of hand tools).

 

  • The danger of secondary infections caused by skin wounds: Breeders may injure themselves in the course of their work. If they come into contact with pathogenic germs, these wounds can become infected. The risk is present all year round, especially when working in a soiled environment (litter, cleaning water) with open wounds or the risk of cutting oneself. Possible damage is contamination by pathogenic germs that can cause: finger panic, occupational tetanus, boils, etc. To reduce the risk of infection, it is essential to control the risk of infection through the strict application of hygiene principles on the farm: cleaning, disinfection, disinsectisation and sanitation. It's important to take the time to disinfect every wound when cutting, and to prevent injuries by wearing appropriate PPE (gloves).

 

  • The danger of animal-related injuries: Livestock can cause blows and injuries to farmers (horns, legs, hooves, jostling, crushing by livestock). Animal injuries frequently occur during handling or restraint for care and treatment. Possible damage includes physical trauma (cuts, crushing, amputation) and the risk of superinfection. To reduce the risk of injury from blows, it is necessary to provide restraint equipment (pens, corridors, stalls, etc.) to limit contact with the animals. It is important to take the time to disinfect each wound when injured, and to prevent injuries by wearing appropriate PPE.
     
  • The danger of using disinfectants and detergents: Farmers use disinfectants and detergents in livestock buildings. These products, whether acidic or alkaline, contain surfactants (irritants) and aldehydes (skin irritants and sensitizers, causing respiratory symptoms through inhalation).

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.
