  • The danger of manual handling: Before starting work on a site, heating plumbers have to transport raw materials (e.g. PVC pipes, copper tubes, solvents and glues, etc.), as well as work tools: machines in boxes, toolboxes, etc. This handling takes place in more or less accessible places (e.g. upstairs or basement of a house). Handling is carried out in more or less accessible locations (e.g., on the floor or basement of a house). Finally, once the job is finished, the remaining tools and raw materials have to be moved back to the site vehicle. The risks associated with manual handling are present on all plumbing and heating sites. They will be increased by a number of criteria: handling distance, ease of access to the site area (upstairs, downstairs, etc.), the weight to be handled, and the way the loads are carried (good/bad posture, use of handling aids or not, etc.). In the short term, manual handling causes back and muscle pain. Over the long term, manual handling leads to Musculoskeletal Disorders. These disorders mainly affect the upper limbs, with common pathologies including shoulder tendinopathy, elbow epicondylitis and carpal tunnel syndrome in the wrists.


  • The danger of falling from heights: Plumbers and heating engineers regularly have to work at heights on construction sites, to gain access to inaccessible areas. This is particularly the case if they need to access pipes or heating equipment at height. To achieve this, heating plumbers use a variety of means of working at height, including stepladders and ladders. Falls from height account for 18% of workplace accidents among heating plumbers nationwide. The risks associated with falls from height depend mainly on the stability of the means of access to height used, as well as the working height. The presence of objects on the ground on which the person would collide in the event of a fall increases the severity of accidents. Damage caused by falls from height can include impact with the ground, with an object below, or with another person on the site. This can result in contusions, fractures, internal and/or external haemorrhaging, head trauma that can plunge the person into a coma, irreversible damage (e.g. spinal column leading to quadriplegia) or even death.


  • The danger of inhaling chemical vapors: Plumbers and heating engineers use a variety of chemical products in the course of their work. Whether they're glues (PVC, two-component epoxy), insulating foams (polyurethane type), degreasers or paints, these products contain Volatile Organic Compounds (VOCs) which accumulate in the working atmosphere. The risks associated with inhalation of these VOCs are present as soon as the heating plumber uses volatile chemical products. The fact of using these products in a confined space with low air renewal favors their concentration in the work atmosphere, and therefore the risks associated with their inhalation. This is often the case for plumbers and heating engineers, as installations are often located in basements and cellars. Once inhaled, Volatile Organic Compounds pass into the lungs before being released into the bloodstream via the pulmonary alveoli. The blood then acts as a transporter, allowing VOCs to spread and come into contact with various organs, notably the heart and brain. This can lead to irritation of the throat, respiratory tract, heart and digestive tracts (nausea, etc.), as well as headaches.
