  • Handling hazards when stocking shelves: Stocking shelves in the shoe store involves a great deal of manual handling. This is because the various products have to be put on the shoe store shelf one by one, by hand. However, as the weight of a pair of shoes is usually less than 2 kilograms, the likelihood of long-term damage is low. Risks associated with manual handling are present when handling products packaged in large quantities, or heavy, bulky unit products. However, several other criteria increase the risks: long handling distances, difficulty in moving around the shoe store (steps to climb, cluttered area, etc.), and above all, the way loads are carried (good/bad posture). In the short term, the possible risks associated with handling are pain, particularly muscular pain, mainly affecting the upper limbs. In the long term, manual handling can lead to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) affecting muscles, tendons and nerves in the upper limbs (shoulders, elbows, wrists) and spine (back pain, neck pain and lumbago).


  • The danger of repetitive stocking movements: Stocking shelves in a shoe store involves a number of repetitive movements. This is the case when opening boxes containing pairs of shoes, moving shoes around the store and displaying them on shelves. These repetitive movements are particularly hard on the upper limbs, especially the hands, elbows and shoulders. The risks induced by repetitive movements are greater if staff work in a cold or damp atmosphere. Indeed, cold and damp are bad for the joints and reinforce the risks induced by repetitive movements. What's more, the use of poor-quality tools for certain tasks increases the risks (e.g. opening cartons with a blade that no longer cuts, forcing the operator to use force). Possible damage caused by repetitive gestures when shelving products includes joint pain in the hands, wrists and shoulders, as well as circulatory disorders and muscular pain. In the long term, repetitive movements can lead to musculoskeletal disorders of the upper limbs (e.g. tendonitis, particularly in the shoulders).


  • The danger of falling from heights when stocking shelves: In the shoe store, it may sometimes be necessary for employees to use a means of access at height. This may be the case for some employees, when they have to arrange products on the store's highest shelves, when the racking is unreachable from a standing position. The risk of falling from a height is particularly high when using height access equipment that has not been designed for the purpose, such as traditional office furniture like tables and chairs. If you're using a height access device designed for the purpose (step stool, stepladder), you still need to place it on a perfectly flat surface and unfold it completely to ensure its safety. Damage caused by falls from height can include impact with the floor, furniture or an object below.
