  • The danger of prolonged static posture at the tobacconist's counter: Cashing customers at the tobacconist's counter involves a major daily postural constraint: having to remain in a prolonged static standing position throughout the entire shift. This is compounded by the fact that the tobacconist's movements take place in a deliberately compact space, with the various displays placed very close together for greater speed. At the tobacconist's cashier's station, the tobacconist will adopt a prolonged static standing position on a daily basis, as it is impossible to change working position to remain efficient. If the tobacconist's business peaks, exposure to risk is further increased as more customers wait to be served. This makes it more difficult to rotate tasks or take a break. Prolonged standing and trampling can lead to sore feet, swollen legs, varicose veins and general muscular fatigue throughout the body. This is usually accompanied by pain in the lower back, neck, shoulders, hips, knees or feet. It can also lead to long-term osteoarticular problems.


  • The danger of atypical working hours for tobacconists: Working in a tobacconist's shop means having to cope with atypical working hours. In other sectors, most employees work from early morning to mid-afternoon, whereas for bar tabac staff, the day can end late, even very late, in the middle of the night. This can lead to long working hours and disrupted biological rhythms. These risks are present all year round in tobacconists, as they are intrinsically linked to the need to serve customers at their preferred times, i.e. after working hours on weekdays (generally from 5pm) and in the evening on weekends, particularly Fridays and Saturdays. The atypical working hours to which tobacco bar employees are exposed can lead to a disruption of biological rhythms, resulting in a reduction in the quality and quantity of sleep. This deterioration in sleep leads to mental fatigue, with a reduced ability to concentrate and react in critical situations (e.g. on the road).


  • Noise hazards for tobacco bar employees: Working in a tobacco bar means that staff are exposed to a certain amount of noise on a daily basis. First of all, the conversations of customers at the various tables in the tobacco bar add up to a constant background noise. Then there's the noise from the machines (e.g. coffee percolator) and the tools used at the counter. Finally, the addition of music in the tobacco bar and/or the broadcasting of TV content also generates noise. Employees may be exposed to noise every day, but noise levels will vary greatly from one department to another, depending on the number of customers in the bar. In the short term, exposure to noise generates auditory fatigue, which can lead to tiredness, stress, irritability and lack of attention, thus increasing the risk of injury. Over the long term, the damage becomes irreversible: occupational deafness. This deafness is accompanied by numerous undesirable effects: tinnitus, whistling, buzzing, vertigo and migraines.
