  • The danger of using water-based paints: Painters use many different types of paint, including water-based paints. While the harmfulness of water-based paints is much lower than that of paints based on organic solvents (particularly in the event of inhalation), they are not without risk. In particular, water-based paints contain glycol ethers, which give rise to various physical risks through skin contact. Risks associated with the use of water-based paints arise during site preparation and painting operations, as well as during the clean-up phase, when brushes/pots need to be cleaned, etc. Failure to wear Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) such as gloves and overalls suitable for painting work increases the likelihood of paint coming into contact with the skin. Compared with organic solvent-based paints, water-based paints emit far fewer Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) and are therefore less dangerous when vapors are inhaled. The main risks from water-based paints arise from skin contact, as glycol ether can cause skin irritation and sensitization. It is also toxic to the blood over the long term, and causes reproductive disorders.


  • The danger of repetitive, prolonged movements: On a daily basis, certain tasks inherent to a painter's work will require numerous repetitive gestures over long working periods. This is particularly true of painting jobs, which require repetitive hand, wrist and shoulder movements, and which can last for days on end. These repetitive movements are inherent in the use of manual tools such as brushes and rollers. The risks associated with repetitive and prolonged movements are present on all sites requiring manual painting tools (brushes and rollers). The risks induced by repetitive movements can be more or less significant, depending on the work atmosphere. Indeed, cold, heat and humidity are bad for joints and will reinforce the risks induced by repetitive movements. Possible damage caused by repetitive movements during painting work 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 danger of awkward postures: Painters sometimes have to adopt awkward postures. This is mainly due to the area they have to paint (e.g. the foot of a wall, under an attic, etc.). When we talk about awkward postures, we're talking about twisting the torso, squatting, kneeling, having the arms outstretched, or having the arms in the air. These awkward postures are a source of various physical risks. Constricting postures will mainly affect painters when they have to work in a small or difficult-to-reach area. The longer the painter has to remain in this awkward position, the greater the risks involved.
