  • Electrical hazards in winemaking processes: In the winery, winemakers use numerous industrial machines (e.g. giraffe, press, sorting table, destemmer, etc.). These machines can have electrotechnical malfunctions requiring human intervention. The electrical risk is mainly present when a machine malfunctions in full operation. In this case, safety measures become secondary, and the risks are greater. Electrocution means death for the operator. To reduce the risks involved in working on machine electrical cabinets, it's important to electrically lock out the equipment you're working on, even in an emergency. To learn how to work safely, it is advisable to obtain the appropriate level of electrical authorization (e.g. B1V for self-consignment up to 1000 volts, B2V for self-consignment and others up to 1000 volts).
  • The danger of blows and grabbing caused by winemaking processes: In the winery, winemakers use rotating machines that can cause blows or grab a person. The risk of grabbing is mainly present when working close to a rotating machine, or during a maintenance operation when the machine has not been consigned. Damage can include bruising, cuts that can cause haemorrhaging, wounds that can become infected if not disinfected, crushing, amputations and even death. To avoid the risk of grabs and cuts, safety covers must be fitted to every machine. For machines not fitted with safety covers, we recommend the installation of an emergency stop device, easily accessible by users.
  • Dangers associated with the use of detergents/disinfectants: In the winery, it is essential to maintain the hygiene of premises and machines to ensure that there are no sources of contamination. To achieve this, detergents and/or disinfectants are frequently used. The risk is mainly present during the use of these cleaning products, but also during their preparation and storage. Possible damage is allergic sensitization (dermatitis, eczema), skin or eye burns, allergic sensitization (eczema / asthma). These products can also cause poisoning if inhaled. To reduce chemical risks, it's important to always follow product use instructions, and in particular to wear the PPE prescribed by the manufacturer (gloves, safety glasses). It's a good idea to ensure air renewal in the winery during cleaning, to evacuate vapors from volatile products or their by-products. 
  • The danger of being hit and crushed by vehicles in traffic: Winemakers can be hit by vehicles in traffic in the winery: tractors and/or forklifts and/or light vehicles. The danger is present all year round, but more particularly during peak periods of activity (harvest wine), when maneuvers are rushed because speed is of the essence. Damage can include injuries, crushing, bruising, fractures and even loss of limbs. In the rarest of cases, these impacts and crushes can also result in death.
