EXCERPTS FROM THE HEALTH AND SAFETY RISK ASSESSMENT 

 

  • The danger of kneeling: Working as a tiler often involves kneeling. This awkward posture is essential if the tiles are to be laid correctly. It's a major hardship factor in the tiling profession. Prolonged pressure on the knee joint for long hours at a time can cause damage that must be protected. The risks associated with this awkward posture are present on every site where floor tiling is required - every day, that is, with rare exceptions. Not wearing knee protection specially adapted to the tiling trade is a particularly aggravating factor, as is not changing working positions regularly. Kneeling will lead to chronic damage to the knee menisci, as well as compression of the sciatic nerve. Prolonged pressure on the knee will cause microtrauma, which will be repeated over time and may lead to bursitis (knee hygroma), accompanied by discomfort and pain. This may eventually require surgery if it becomes superinfected.

 

  • Handling hazards: On a daily basis, tilers have to carry out a great deal of handling. First of all, supplies have to be loaded into the site vehicle (packaged tiles, bags of cement, etc.). On arrival at the customer's premises, these supplies, along with the necessary tools and machinery (saws, drills, tilers, etc.), must be handled all the way to the job site. Once the job site is finished, the tools have to be loaded back into the site vehicle. Handling hazards are particularly prevalent on sites that are difficult to access and where handling aids cannot be used. As well as being numerous, handling is also difficult, as tiles are a relatively heavy raw material. Finally, supplies (mortar, cement, etc.) are often packaged in large bags (usually 25 kg). These manual handling operations will be responsible for muscular pain, joint pain and back pain in the short term. Over the long term, manual handling can lead to Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs) of the upper limbs, notably lesions of the spine, shoulders (tendinopathy) and wrists (carpal tunnel syndrome).

 

  • The danger of repetitive movements: The tile-laying profession requires many repetitive movements on a daily basis. Whether it's cutting tiles with a tile cutter, laying and smoothing cement with trowels and floats, or installing tiles by hand: the upper limbs of the body are involved in a large number of repetitive movements, all of which are major health risk factors. For tilers, these risks are present on a daily basis, as the job requires so many repetitive movements. On sites where the atmosphere is cold or damp (e.g. unheated renovation sites), the risks are even greater, as cold and damp are bad for the joints, and will reinforce the damage caused by repetitive movements. Possible damage caused by repetitive movements includes joint and muscle pain in the hands, wrists and shoulders, as well as circulatory disorders. Over the long term, repetitive movements will contribute to the development of the various upper-limb Musculoskeletal Disorders that can be observed in the tiling profession.

"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.
