Prevent the risks of the trade

If you work in the car maintenance and repair industry, you know that one of the main causes of accidents at work is back pain and lumbago.

Directive 90/269 of the European Community defines manual handling of loads as « any operation involving the transport or support of a load, by one or more workers, including lifting, placing, pushing, pulling, carrying or moving a load which, because of its characteristics or unfavourable ergonomic conditions, involves risks, in particular of a back injury, for the workers. »

Prevention linked to handling corresponds to the need to avoid accidents or health problems, but also to enable the very many employees with low back pain to remain at work. The Labour Code specifies that the employer must, after assessing the risk, take any organisational or equipment measure (mechanical assistance). The aim is to limit physical effort and make these operations safer.

As many surveys on the subject show every year, it appears that pain and lumbago account for more than 15% of accidents at work in the maintenance, car repair and bodywork sector:
