  • The danger of injuries caused by the use of cutting, pricking or burning machines: Opticians use tools and machines that can cause cuts, punctures and burns in the course of their work. The risk is greatest when working on pairs of spectacles using heated and perforating machines. The main possible injuries are cuts and punctures, with the possible development of infections. There is also a risk of first-, second- and third-degree burns. To reduce these risks, you must remain vigilant when using these machines. Always wear the necessary PPE (gloves, safety goggles) and follow the operating instructions specific to these machines.


  • Chemical hazards: Opticians use organic solvents (acetone, alcohols, naphthas, glycol ethers, etc.), cyanoacrylate glues, and cleaning products that may contain Carcinogenic, Mutagenic and/or Reprotoxic (CMR) substances.The risk arises when these products are used, packaged, cleaned or stored.Possible damage includes respiratory ailments (rhinitis, asthma), eye irritation, skin problems (eczema) and even encephalopathy.To reduce risks, replace the most dangerous products with less dangerous ones, especially if they contain CMR (Carcinogenic - Mutagenic - Reprotoxic) substances.


  • Postural hazards - prolonged standing + trampling: Opticians are subject to postural constraints during their work: prolonged standing with trampling in a confined space.These physical constraints are present all year round among opticians.The possible damage is osteo-articular pathologies. More specifically, walking leads to heavy legs, varicose veins and edema of the lower limbs. Physical activity outside work, even if it's just walking, helps prevent postural risks. To reduce postural stress in the workplace.


  • The danger of using moving machinery: Opticians use grinding and polishing machines.The moving parts of these machines can be dangerous for them.This applies mainly to the use of these machines, but also to their maintenance and cleaning.Possible injuries include cuts to hands, bruising, crushing and entanglement of limbs. To reduce risks, stay alert when operating moving machines. Always wear the PPE required for machine operation (gloves).


  • The danger of foreign bodies being projected into the eye: Opticians use hand-held grinders to trim new lenses. These grinding operations can generate projections. The risk arises mainly from the use of hand-held grinders.The main potential damage is eye injury.Remain alert when using moving machinery.Always wear the PPE required for operating the machine (goggles), and follow the operating instructions specific to the machine.
