EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • Falling from heights: Roofers need to work at heights all year round, whether they're repairing, repairing or cleaning roofs. As a result, they are particularly exposed to the risk of falls from height. These falls can occur from a means of access at height (ladders, building scaffolding, roof edge platforms, etc.) or from the roof of a dwelling (slipping on a batten, slate, tile, zinc sheet, etc.). Firstly, human factors are at the root of these falls: working at height without safe means of access, or with inadequately installed equipment (instability on the ground, assembly not in compliance with manufacturer's instructions, etc.). Secondly, meteorological factors such as rain and snow increase the risk of slipping. Wind is a major risk factor, with the possibility of being swept away or jostled suddenly. Not wearing PPE or EPC is a critical factor. Falls from roofs usually result in fractures of one or more bones, sometimes in critical areas (e.g. spine, pelvis, skull), as well as possible head trauma. Whether the roofer falls inside or outside the building from which he was working, he risks serious injury in all cases, which can cause irreversible effects (loss of use of certain limbs), be life-threatening (coma) or even lead to death.

 

  • Danger from falling objects at height: Whatever the job, roofers have to carry tools (e.g. hand tools and power tools) and supplies (e.g. tiles, slates, zinc sheeting, wooden battens, loose or board insulation, etc.) to height. Added to this will be the rubble (old dismantled materials) that will accumulate during renovation work. If one of these objects falls from a height, it represents a major hazard for people below. The risks are present whenever an object is stored at height with people walking nearby below. Placing objects on the edge of roofs or platforms, especially if they have no edges, is the biggest factor in falls. If the site is windy or rising, objects will fall all the more easily. In any case, failure to mark a no-fall zone in the vicinity of the site is a critical factor. Possible damage caused by falling objects stored at height is violent impact with people below. The damage caused depends on the weight of the object and the height at which it falls. In the most serious cases, this can result in skull fractures, damage to the spinal column with irreversible effects, and head trauma that can plunge the person into a coma or even death.

 

  • The danger of repetitive movements: When renovating or installing a roof, roofers have to perform a large number of repetitive movements. This is because, even today, roofing elements are laid out by hand: tile, slate, zinc sheeting and even insulating materials. The tools and machines used to fasten or remove the various roofing elements also require numerous repetitive gestures: a roofer's hammer, a nail puller, flat roofing pliers, shears, a nailer, and so on. For roofers, repetitive gestures are part of everyday life, due to the tasks the trade requires them to perform, including roof cleaning. Because they work outdoors all the time, roofers are subject to an aggravating factor: cold, damp atmospheres, particularly in autumn and winter... [End of extract].

"The document, of high quality and customizable, is an excellent starting point for a topic that often takes up a lot of time. Thank you also for listening to our needs and the customer follow-up!"

"High-quality service at a very competitive price - the company fully adapted to my business and its multiple risks. This document was also reviewed by the labor inspection, which approved the quality of the work. I recommend."

I recommend the occupational risk assessment documents for their ease of use (Excel workbook) and the relevance of risks listed by profession.
