EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • Cutting/sharpening/piercing machine tools - risk of cuts: Metalworkers use a wide range of cutting and piercing tools, such as grinders, shears, guillotines, chainsaws, milling machines and drills. The risk of cuts is present not only when using these tools, but also during their cleaning and maintenance. Possible damage includes cuts that can become infected if not disinfected, open wounds causing severe bleeding (vein/aorta), or even amputation of limbs. Cutting machine tools must be fitted with protective covers so that operators cannot reach the machine's cutting zone. In addition, it is recommended that operators wear Personal Protective Equipment against the risk of cuts, in particular cut-resistant gloves. Remain vigilant when using any sharp machine, and avoid any debris on the ground that could cause tripping.

 

  • Danger from flying metal particles/sparks: The machine tools used by metalworkers generate sparks, as well as flying metal particles that can cause injury (eyes, hands, etc.). The risk is mainly present when metalworkers use cutting tools (e.g. grinders). Damage caused by sparks and metal projected into the eyes can range from simple discomfort and temporary pain, to temporary blindness or total blindness in the event of severe impact. Projections into the hands can result in bruising, wounds that can become infected, fractures or even minor burns caused by sparks. To reduce the risk of splashing when using machine tools, it is essential that machines liable to splash material (grinders, grinders, etc.) are fitted with a protective housing.

 

  • Noise hazard: Metalworkers have to work in a noisy atmosphere, with all the tools and machines in operation. Noise levels can exceed 100dB. Noise is present all year round in metalworker's workshops. It is increased by the number of noisy machines operating simultaneously in the workshop. In the short term, exposure to noise generates auditory fatigue, which can lead to inattention and an increased risk of injury. Over the long term, the damage becomes irreversible: progressive occupational deafness, of which most people are unaware. This deafness is accompanied by numerous undesirable effects: tinnitus, whistling, buzzing, vertigo and migraines. It is possible to reduce noise-related risks at source by purchasing the least noisy machine tools when renewing or purchasing new equipment.

 

  • The danger of manual handling: Metalworkers are required to carry out a great deal of manual handling of heavy loads (metal parts, mobile equipment, etc.). The risk is present all year round for metalworkers. The risk is increased by several factors: the weight transported and the handling distance. Damage caused by handling can include back pain, due to the high pressure exerted on the spine, and sometimes sciatica. There are also osteoarticular problems in the upper limbs, notably tendonitis in the shoulders and elbows.

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.
