  • The danger of repetitive manual movements: Shellfish farmers are exposed to physical hazards from the repetition of manual movements they perform every day.  This hazard arises mainly during the sorting, grading, packaging and shipping of products. This entails risks of muscular pain, joint pain and Musculoskeletal Disorders (long term). To reduce these risks, it is important to alternate tasks between different employees to avoid repetition over long periods. Adapting work surfaces to human height reduces the risk of developing disorders and pain. Finally, automating all tasks that can be automated prevents employee fatigue and considerably reduces the risks associated with the repetition of manual movements.


  • Handling hazards: Shellfish farmers may have to handle heavy loads over varying distances. The danger is greater when working in hot, cold or humid environments, as these conditions amplify the difficulty of the task. The main risks are musculoskeletal disorders, lumbago, sciatica, sprains and sprains of the ankles and knees. The best way to reduce this risk is to use handling equipment whenever possible. It's also very important to respect the essential rules of handling, such as keeping your back straight when lifting a heavy load, or bending your knees when stooping.


  • The danger of standing for long periods of time: Constant standing is a constraint imposed by workstations, as it is impossible to prepare and collect products while seated. Employees are therefore subject to this risk throughout the day. The long standing posture can lead to muscular pain, joint pain, back pain and low back pain. To prevent these risks, it is advisable to design workstations at man-height, so as never to have to work bent over, and to make the standing posture more comfortable. It is also essential to alternate tasks (rotation between colleagues) to avoid remaining static for too long and share the workload. Finally, it is possible to install "sit-stand" chairs to make standing posture easier to maintain for long periods.


  • The risk of being hit or caught by a machine: Shellfish farmers use a great deal of machinery. For the shellfish farmers who use them, these mechanical devices can cause blows or grab limbs during use. This danger arises mainly during use, but also during cleaning and maintenance. Possible risks include cuts, crushing, amputation of limbs, infection or, in the most serious cases, death. To prevent these risks, it's important to stay alert when using and cleaning equipment, and to wear suitable PPE (gloves) when operating machinery. Make sure you're not disturbed, and don't run from one task to another. Finally, it is mandatory to use machines that comply with International safety standards (ISO mark) and not to modify them.


  • The danger of drowning: Shellfish farmers work on large bodies of water, and can therefore find themselves in difficulty if a problem arises that puts them in the water. This danger arises mainly when moving around the farm on a barge or other craft.
