  • The danger of manual handling during shelving: Shelving in the off-licence involves a lot of manual handling for the staff. This is due to the fact that the various bottles are placed on the shelves one by one by hand. What's more, while virtually all spirits are packaged in bottles with a maximum volume of one liter, there are also larger packages. These include magnums (1.5l), mathusalems (6l), etc. Risks associated with manual handling are present whenever large loads have to be handled, but also when handling small loads a large number of times. A number of other criteria increase the risks: long handling distances, difficulty in moving around in the cellar (narrow passage widths or considerable clutter), and above all, the way loads are carried (good/bad postures, use of handling aids or not, etc.). In the short term, the possible risks associated with manual handling are pain, particularly muscular pain, mainly affecting the upper limbs. Over the long term, manual handling can lead to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) affecting muscles, tendons and nerves in the upper limbs (shoulders, elbows, wrists) and spine (back pain, neck pain and lumbago).


  • Risks associated with cuts when picking up broken glass: Off-licence employees have to move large numbers of bottles of spirits, and also handle stemmed glasses to allow customers to taste the liquors before purchase. While handling these glass objects is not a risk when they are in good condition, things are very different when they break. In this case, it's necessary to pick up the pieces of glass, which can cause damage of varying degrees of severity. The more scattered the pieces of glass, the greater the likelihood of injury. If the waiter rushes to pick up the debris by hand, without taking the time to wear appropriate Personal Protective Equipment (cut-resistant gloves with EN 511 marking), the risk of injury is greatly increased (it's better to use a shovel and broom, rather than your hands). Shards of broken glass can cause superficial wounds, or deep wounds with damage to tendons and/or muscles. These wounds may be accompanied by significant haemorrhaging if a vein or aorta has been affected. What's more, any wound is likely to become infected if not disinfected quickly. In rarer cases, the damage can be severe, with severed limbs.


  • Risks associated with repetitive gestures when shelving spirits: Shelving spirits in an off-licence involves numerous repetitive tasks for the staff. This is the case when opening cartons of bottles after delivery, when loading these bottles onto handling equipment, and when displaying the bottles in the off-licence. These repetitive movements place particular demands on the upper limbs, notably the hands, elbows and shoulders. The risks induced by repetitive movements are greater when personnel work in a cool and/or damp atmosphere. Indeed, like humidity, cold is bad for the joints and will reinforce the risks induced by repetitive movements. This is often the case for off-licence employees, as some spirits, such as wine, keep better at a temperature of between 12°C and 15°C. Possible damage caused by repetitive gestures during product shelving 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).
