Occupational safety and health risks associated with small-scale solar energy installations
Small-scale and domestic solar energy installations are widely used but only little attention has been given to the associated occupational safety and health (OSH) aspects so far. Many workers’ groups in various types of workplaces and sectors are involved with such systems.

Technologies et métiers verts : enjeux pour la santé au travail
Organisé par l'INRS et ses partenaires (l'Agence européenne pour la santé et la sécurité au travail et la Fédération des caisses allemandes d'assurance accidents du travail et maladies professionnelles - DGUV) dans le cadre du congrès mondial de l'Association internationale de la sécurité sociale (AISS) et du Bureau international du travail (BIT), ce symposium avait pour objectif d'échanger sur les risques, opportunités et problèmes de santé et de sécurité au travail...
Les énergies durables
Le dossier présente les risques professionnels présents dans le secteur ainsi que des exemples de démarches de prévention chez un exploitant de parcs éoliens, chez un fabricant d'éoliennes, dans une unité de méthanisation et dans une usine de fabrication de bûches en bois compacté. On y trouve également la démarche d'acteurs de la filière bois en Drôme-Ardèche sur la conception des lieux de livraison, suivie d'un reportage dans une entreprise de fabrication de biocarburants à...
Green Jobs, new risks?
New and emerging risks to occupational safety and health in the electricity sector This report describes a workshop, based on the EU-OSHA Foresight project, held in Brussels on 20 March 2014 for the European Sectoral Social Dialogue Committee (SSDC) Electricity. The objectives were: 1. To engage in a discussion on new and emerging risks in the electricity sector with the members of the SSDC Electricity building on the EU-OSHA Foresight project; 2. To stimulate their interest in the findings of the project relevant to their sector; and 3. To demonstrate how scenarios can be used to anticipate new...
Occupational Safety and Health (OSH) risks in the wind energy sector
Hazard Identification Checklist As the European Union power sector continues its move away from oil, coal and nuclear fuels, wind energy has experienced tremendous growth over the past decade and this is expected to continue. The wind energy sector is relatively young with turbine technology constantly progressing and this creates an ongoing responsibility to ensure workers that conduct tasks such as installations, operation, or maintenance do so under the safest possible conditions. This checklist accompanies EU-OSHA's report “Occupational Safety and Health in the wind energy sector”...
Occupational safety and health in the wind energy sector
This e-fact considers occupational safety and health (OSH) issues in the wind energy sector and is aimed at raising awareness and supporting good OSH in onshore and offshore facilities. It summarises the findings from EU-OSHA's report ‘Occupational safety and health in the wind energy sector' (EU-OSHA, 2013a). It considers the activities associated with wind energy and identifies specific hazards to workers across the entire life cycle of wind turbines, from the design and manufacturing of parts, through their transport, installation and maintenance, to emergency rescue and waste...
Secteur éolien
Risques en santé et en sécurité au travail et stratégies de prévention Malgré une très forte croissance de l'implantation d'éoliennes à travers le monde et notamment au Québec, les statistiques d'accidents de travail, même au niveau international, demeurent fragmentaires et illustrent mal la situation en matière de santé et de sécurité au travail dans ce secteur. Cette étude visait à mieux comprendre les risques et les pratiques en santé et en sécurité...
Les défis des emplois verts de l’industrie du photovoltaïque au Québec
L’industrie du photovoltaïque (PV), pourvoyeuse d’électricité solaire à faible empreinte écologique, est un secteur d’activité en pleine croissance ayant généré quelque 220 000 emplois verts dans le monde en 2010, avec une projection de près de 2 000 000 à l’horizon 2020. L'industrie du photovoltaïque fait face néanmoins à des risques potentiels pour la santé et la sécurité des travailleurs et ce, tout le long du cycle de vie des systèmes photovoltaïques...
Occupational safety and health in the wind energy sector
The wind energy sector is growing quickly as a result of the EU 2020 Strategy objectives for climate and energy policy. However, it brings with it many occupational safety and health (OSH) challenges as many aspects of onshore and offshore wind turbines are unique, and so are the working environments in which they are found. Being a relatively young industry, specific issues such as skills shortages and a lack of consistent procedures and standards also have an impact on OSH. This report introduces the wind energy sector and examines how its specific issues impact on OSH. It looks at the particular...
L’Europe se penche sur la santé et la sécurité des nouveaux métiers verts
Les préoccupations environnementales ont généré une croissance rapide des emplois « verts », mais une évaluation insuffisante des risques posés par ces nouvelles technologies et processus pour la santé et la sécurité des travailleurs. Avec le projet Prévoyance, l'Agence Européenne pour la sécurité et la santé au travail (EU-OSHA) a pour objectif d'identifier les risques nouveaux et émergents de l'économie verte. En effet, les emplois verts sont susceptibles d'engendrer...
Safety risk management for electrical transmission and distribution line construction
Prior research has established that electrical contractors involved in the construction and maintenance of electrical transmission and distribution (T&D) lines are at extremely high risk of electrocution. The result of inadvertent contact with T&D lines often is death or severe injury that involves damage to internal organs, musculoskeletal disorders, neurological damages and severe burns. The Electrical Safety Foundation International has demonstrated that contact with overhead power lines has been the single largest cause of electrical fatalities over the last decade. To reduce this disproportionate...
Emplois verts
Énergies nouvelles pour la prévention Pour pallier la raréfaction des ressources fossiles et réduire la pollution, la réglementation a fixé un certain nombre de critères de progression énergétique qui se traduisent par de nouvelles situations de travail dans les secteurs de l'énergie et du bâtiment.

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...
OSHA forms Alliance with the American Wind Energy Association
OSHA and the American Wind Energy Association (AWEA) formed an Alliance Aug. 8 that focuses on preventing worker exposures to electrical, crane and fall hazards in the wind energy industry. During the two-year agreement, the Alliance participants intend to develop materials for workers that address wind energy maintenance and operations hazards. The participants will also hold forums to discuss these hazards that can expose workers to harm and raise awareness among workers and employers of OSHA's rulemaking and enforcement initiatives through sharing information on workplace safety and health...
Foresight of New and Emerging Risks to Occupational Safety and Health Associated with New Technologies in Green Jobs by 2020
This report describes the work carried out in Phase 1 of the project ‘Foresight of New and Emerging Risks to Occupational Safety and Health Associated with New Technologies in Green Jobs by 2020' commissioned by the European Risk Observatory (ERO). The aim of Phase 1 is to identify key contextual drivers of change that could contribute to creating new and emerging risks associated with new technologies in green jobs within ten years. This report serves as an interim report to the whole project, which has three phases. Source : https://osha.europa.eu/en/publications/reports/green-jobs...
