  • The danger of using sharp tools: When working with metal, leather or rubber, shoe repairers are required to use tools that are sharp and/or cutting (e.g. sewing machines, milling cutters, pantographs for engraving, slicers, drill presses, nails, scissors, shears, awls, etc.). These tools are a potential source of physical injury. The risk is not only present when using these tools, but also during cleaning of the work area and during maintenance operations (e.g. sharpening of chisels, drills, etc.). Possible damage includes cuts which can become infected if not disinfected, open wounds causing significant bleeding (vein/aorta), or even amputations.


  • The risk of being struck or caught by machines with rotating parts: To work with leather, rubber and metal, shoe repairers have to use rotating machines (e.g. a workbench for scraping operations). The risk exists not only when using machines with rotating parts, but also when cleaning and maintaining them. Possible injuries include contusions, fractures and tears, which can result in large open wounds, or even limb amputation in the most serious cases.


  • The danger of inhaling dust from leather and rubber: Shoe repairers regularly work leather into the shoes and garments brought to them by their customers. Leatherworking generates dust classified as carcinogenic by the IARC. This is particularly true of certain leather-working operations that generate large quantities of dust, such as sanding and scraping. Leather dusts, which are very fine particles, pass through the nasal cavity and attack the trachea and lungs, causing inflammation of the mucous membranes and bronchi. This leads to rhinitis (itching, sneezing, runny nose) and asthmatic reactions. What's more, it is now certain that leather dust is carcinogenic.


  • The danger of inhaling metal dust: shoe repairers work with metals such as iron, steel, copper, zinc and nickel. Dust from these different alloys can cause acute or chronic respiratory pathologies, as well as neurological and cardiovascular diseases. The risk is mainly present during metalworking operations generating large quantities of metal dust (e.g.: making keys at a customer's request). But the risk is also present when cleaning the workshop after emitting large quantities of dust. Possible damage varies according to the metal.
