Bioréacteurs: cultiver le vivant, pas le risque
De nombreuses entreprises appartenant au secteur de la santé, à celui de l'industrie, de l'agroalimentaire ou de l'environnement, mettent à profit le métabolisme des cellules vivantes dans leurs techniques de production. Les bioréacteurs occupent une place centrale dans ces procédés car c'est en leur sein que les micro-organismes se multiplient. Les risques auxquels peuvent être exposés les salariés qui travaillent sur ces appareillages sont des plus variés. Source: http://www.travail-et-securite.fr/ts/dossier...
Emergent risk to workplace safety as a result of the use of robots in the work place
Today's industrial robots have introduced new risk to the work place even though their areas of operation are clearly defined in safety zones or cages. This was brought home only too clearly in 2015 when a worker was crushed to death by a robot at a car plant. Given that industrial robots are increasingly being used in agriculture, horticulture, the manufacturing sector and distribution warehouses, it is likely that similar accidents will occur more frequently in the future. Moreover, the programming of industrial robots will become increasingly complex as their tasks continue to increase either...
Plasturgie - Un secteur à risques
Présents dans de nombreux produits industriels, les plastiques recouvrent une grande diversité de matières et leur fabrication expose à une multitude de risques professionnels : risques liés à l'utilisation de substances chimiques, aux manutentions, risques d'incendie-explosion, bruit généré par les machines, risques de chutes... Même si le nombre d'accidents du travail est en baisse dans les entreprises de transformation des matières plastiques, ce secteur reste très sensible. La manutention manuelle...
Textile sector
While recent tragic events in Pakistan, Bangladesh and other countries brought the spotlight on the ready-made garment (RMG) industry and triggered G7 and G20 support for better safety and working conditions in the sector, health issues are in danger of being overlooked. It is true that efforts at improving structural and fire safety are absolutely necessary. They require relentless and coordinated action between governments, employers, workers, and buyers as key stakeholders. However, safety cannot be the exclusive focus. Attention must also be paid to the prevention of risks to worker's health...
Results of the Finnish national survey investigating safety management, collaboration and work environment in the chemical industry
The aim of this study is to explore the effects of the OSH legislation, collaboration and management. These variables had an effect on the continuous improvement of OSH, the safety training, the safe use of chemicals, the use of personal protective equipments, the monitoring of the work environment and the arrangement of occupational health care. The respondents to the questionnaire survey were OSH managers (N = 85) and workers' OSH representatives (N = 120) working in the chemical industry. The present results found that workers' OSH representatives believed more strongly than OSH managers...
Pilot project to research the need to update HSE on the occupational health risks in the woodworking industry
This report presents the findings of a pilot project to research the need to update HSE's evidence base for wood dust exposure risks in GB manufacturing and construction industries. Information was sourced from businesses which had participated in previous exposure surveys, contact with manufacturing (woodworking) businesses and trade associations, a literature review of papers reporting wood dust exposure data, and occupational hygiene surveys for wood dust exposure at three construction sites. The report finds there to be: - uncertainty whether the control of occupational exposure to wood...

Female breast cancer in Lombardy, Italy (2002–2009): A case–control study on occupational risks
Background The role of occupational exposures in breast cancer development is still uncertain and, to our knowledge, no studies have been recently carried out in Italy to provide a comprehensive estimation of this possible risk. Methods Based on administrative data, a case-control study was carried out recruiting all incident cases of female breast cancer in the period 2002–2009, aged between 35 and 69 years, residing in Lombardy, Italy. Controls were randomly sampled from all women residing in Lombardy as of December 31, 2005. Occupational histories, including blue-collar status, were available...

REPLAY. 21 jours à l'usine chez un équipementier automobile
Dans le cadre d'une série de documentaires préparés pour France 2, la journaliste Alexandra Alévêque part expérimenter les quotidiens d'ouvriers précaires, de non-voyants, ou encore d'auxiliaires de vie. Pour ce premier volet, Alexandra vit pendant 21 jours comme une ouvrière chez un sous-traitant de PSA. La France compte près de six millions d'ouvriers, soit un actif sur quatre. Ils n'occupent pourtant que 2% de l'espace médiatique, selon l'Observatoire des inégalités. Pour France 2,...
Health and safety in surface engineering
Surface engineering refers to a wide range of technologies designed to modify the surface properties of components for decorative and/or functional purposes. The industry has significantly higher accident rates (for fatal, major and 3-day injuries) than manufacturing as a whole. Indeed, whilst accident rates for manufacturing have dropped over the last 6 year period, in Surface Engineering industries they have increased. For example, the major injury rate for surface engineering has increased from 270 (per 100,000 employees) in 1996/7 to 445 in 2002/3 whereas the manufacturing industry rates have...
Summary of the Making Green Jobs Safe Workshop
Green jobs—good for the environment, good for the economy. But how do we assure that green jobs are also good for workers? The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH), through the Prevention through Design Program, launched the Going Green: Safe and Healthy Jobs initiative to make sure that green jobs are good for workers by integrating worker safety and health sustainability. Green jobs, which have been defined broadly as jobs that help improve the environment and enhance sustainability, offer opportunities as well as challenges for workers. Examples of green jobs include...
