  • Falling from heights: MOT testers use inspection pits to inspect the underside of vehicles. These inspection pits are uncovered, exposing those working nearby to the risk of falling from height. This is one of the two main risk factors for work-related accidents in the profession. This is a year-round risk for roadworthiness inspectors, as the inspection pits are always open, even when there are no vehicles to inspect. Falls from heights can result in bruising, wounds with risk of infection, fractures, head injuries and, in rare cases, death if you fall headfirst.


  • The danger of falling from ground level: MOT testers work on floors that can be slippery on rainy days due to the water carried by vehicles. Some vehicles may be leaking consumables (engine and gearbox oils, brake fluid, power steering fluid, coolant, windshield washer fluid, etc.), making the floors particularly slippery. Falls on the same level are one of the two main risk factors for accidents in the profession. The risk of falling is present every day of the year for MOT testers. However, the risk is increased when inspecting vehicles with leaks, or on rainy days when wet vehicles are brought into the premises. Falls from ground level can result in bruising, wounds with risk of infection, fractures, head injuries and, in rare cases, death if the victim's head hits the ground.


  • The danger of exposure to exhaust fumes: MOT testers have to inspect vehicles with running engines. This means they are exposed to pollutant emissions from diesel, petrol and hybrid engines, particularly during the emissions test when they need to maintain high engine speed. Mainly when inspecting thermal vehicles: hybrids, petrols, and especially older-generation diesels without AD-Blue, due to their higher emissions of nitrogen oxides and fine particles. Electric cars do not expose MOT testers to this risk, as they emit no pollutants. Exposure to exhaust fumes can cause headaches and nausea in the short term. Over the long term, repeated exposure to exhaust gases is responsible for the recognized occupational disease of carbon monoxide poisoning. What's more, diesel exhaust has been recognized as a definite carcinogen by the IARC since 2012.


  • Noise hazard: MOT testers are exposed to noise from vehicles throughout their inspections. Regular exposure to noise can lead to long-term occupational deafness. For the duration of the inspection of vehicles at the roadworthiness center. The risk is increased by two factors: the average noise level (expressed in dB) and the exposure time (in hours), from which the daily noise exposure is calculated (over an 8-hour period), and which it is vital to keep below the 85dB threshold. In the short term, noise exposure can generate headaches, tinnitus and fatigue. Over the long term, exposure to high levels of noise leads to progressive hearing loss, which most people are unaware of. This is accompanied by other inconveniences such as vertigo and chronic tinnitus. Hearing damage caused by lesional noise is recognized as an occupational disease.
