EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • Manual handling hazards: Masonry is one of the trades most exposed to manual handling hazards, accounting for 48% of occupational accidents. This is due to a combination of factors: firstly, raw materials are often heavy, not very ergonomic, and present in large quantities. Secondly, site accessibility sometimes makes the use of handling aids impossible. For masons, manual handling is a daily occurrence. Whatever the task, it's bound to require handling at some point. Three factors in particular are likely to aggravate handling-related damage: failure to observe proper handling postures, regularly lifting loads that are too heavy (around 25kg), and carrying loads over long distances. Manual handling will cause muscular pain, joint pain and back pain in the short term. In the long term, manual handling can lead to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) in the upper limbs, including lesions of the spine, shoulders (tendinopathy) and wrists (carpal tunnel syndrome).

 

  • The danger of skin contact with cement-based products: The masonry sector uses a variety of cement-based preparations in large quantities: sealing mortar (cement - sand - water), concrete (cement - sand - water - aggregates), and so on. While hands and forearms are the main extremities likely to be exposed to these preparations, elbows, knees and thighs may also come into contact with them accidentally (e.g. spillage, splashes, falls, etc.). Risks are present whenever concrete has to be used on the worksite, whether during the preparation stage (most often in a concrete mixer or trough) or during application (by hand with hand tools, but also during delivery by router). Skin contact is much more frequent when people work with concrete without wearing dedicated personal protective equipment (standard EN388). Cement and mortar can cause skin lesions, burns, cracks and fissures, and pain. They can also cause dermatitis: the skin turns red (erythrene) and blisters (powdery or not), with the sufferer feeling an intense urge to scratch. Cement and mortar can also trigger allergies in some people.

 

  • The danger of repetitive movements: To carry out their various jobs, masons have to perform a large number of repetitive movements. This is mainly due to the fact that, even today, many of the tasks performed by masons require the use of manual tools, such as trowels and floats for laying and smoothing cement and plaster. These repetitive movements primarily involve the upper limbs. For masons, exposure to repetitive movements is a daily occurrence, even if it varies somewhat according to the tasks involved. Because they work outdoors almost all the time, masons are subject to an aggravating factor: hot atmospheres in summer and cold atmospheres in winter. In fact, these work atmospheres tend to reinforce joint damage, particularly when humidity is high. Possible damage caused by repetitive movements 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).

"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.
