  • The danger of awkward postures: Plumbers regularly adopt awkward postures, due to the need to work in hard-to-reach places (e.g. under sinks, behind non-moveable equipment, etc.). The most common awkward postures encountered by plumbers are squatting and kneeling, as well as twisting the torso, stretching the arms forward or up, and lying on the back. Awkward postures mainly affect plumbers when they have to work in areas that are difficult to access or small in size. The longer the person has to remain in this awkward position, the greater the risks involved. If the person does not alternate work positions frequently, the damage will be more localized to a specific area of the body, and will be more significant. In the short term, awkward postures lead to muscular and joint pain. In the long term, awkward postures lead to a variety of musculoskeletal disorders. In the majority of cases, these affect the upper limbs, with shoulder tendinopathy, elbow epicondylitis, carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrists, and so on.


  • The danger of using cleaning and gluing chemicals: During plumbing work, plumbers frequently have to clean/glue fittings and pipes. To do this, they use various chemical compounds such as descalers, strippers, solvents, special PVC glues, resins and silicone products. Each of these chemicals exposes the people who use them to different risks in the event of skin contact or inhalation. The risks associated with the use of these products are mainly present during their application, but also during site tidying (e.g. in the event of product drips onto their containers). Failure to wear Personal Protective Equipment such as gloves increases the likelihood of skin contact. Using these products, most of which are volatile, in a room without air circulation increases the risk of inhalation. Short-term damage includes skin irritation and respiratory tract irritation, which account for only 1% of work stoppages in the plumbing sector. On the other hand, the long-term consequences are far more serious, as some of the products used are CMRs (Carcinogenic, Mutagenic, and/or Reprotoxic), which are particularly responsible for damage to the nervous system.


  • The danger of using machines and tools with the risk of cuts and perforations: The danger of using machines and tools with the risk of cuts and perforations: Plumbing work requires the use of a variety of tools and machines for drilling into supports (perforator / drill - screwdriver), bending or folding metal (bending machine), cutting pipes (shears - pipe cutter), crimping various parts (crimping machine), etc. All these tools and machines are liable to cause cuts and punctures to the limbs of people working on the job. All these tools and machines are liable to cause cuts and punctured limbs to the people using them. The risks are present whenever these tools and machines are used on plumbing jobs. The likelihood of accidents increases when plumbers use these tools and machines in a hurry, when they are distracted, when they are multi-tasking (e.g. answering the phone) or when they are not wearing Personal Protective Equipment, such as suitable protective gloves.
