Travaux de revêtement routier: de multiples risques à prendre en compte
Travailler à la fabrication de routes n'est pas sans risque pour les opérateurs, car ils manipulent des enrobés bitumineux chauds qui peuvent présenter des effets sur la santé, soit par les fumées dégagées, soit par contact cutané. Ce dossier présente un état des lieux des différents travaux menés par la profession et les organismes de prévention pour améliorer la prévention de ces risques, ainsi que des méthodes d'évaluation des expositions des travailleurs aux...
Cured-in-Place-Pipe (CIPP): Inhalation and Dermal Exposure Risks Associated with Sanitary Sewer, Storm Sewer, and Drinking Water Pipe Repairs
Cured-in-place-pipe (CIPP) is the most popular water pipe repair method used in the U.S. for sanitary sewer, storm sewer, and is increasingly being used for drinking water pipe repairs. Today, approximately 50% of all damaged pipes are being repaired using CIPP technology. The CIPP procedure involves the chemical manufacture of a new plastic pipe called a CIPP inside a damaged water pipe. Little is known about CIPP worker exposures and health risks. CIPP manufacturing sites are highly transient, with a single installation location being used from a few hours to a few days. Unlike traditional manufacturing...
Electromagnetic Fields (EMF) in the welding environment
The Electromagnetic fields (EMF) Directive (2013/35/EU) was adopted in June 2013. Member States are required to bring into force any laws, regulations and or administrative provisions necessary to comply with the Directive by July 1st, 2016. This research report considers various types of welding and the requirements of the Directive. The report provides: - A review of available literature using the TWI “Weldasearch” database and other sources - Measurements of the EMF emissions welders may be exposed to during the welding processes - Understanding where welding fits in with the requirements...
Occupation and environmental heat-associated deaths in Maricopa County, Arizona: a case-control study
Background Prior research shows that work in agriculture and construction/extraction occupations increases the risk of environmental heat-associated death. Purpose To assess the risk of environmental heat-associated death by occupation. Methods This was a case-control study. Cases were heat-caused and heat-related deaths occurring from May-October during the period 2002–2009 in Maricopa County, Arizona. Controls were selected at random from non-heat-associated deaths during the same period in Maricopa County. Information on occupation, age, sex, and race-ethnicity was obtained from death...
Cold Stress
For many, a sweater or an extra degree on the thermostat is all that's needed to keep warm at work on a cold day. Not so for those working outside or in an area that is poorly insulated or without heat. These workers may be at risk of cold stress. What constitutes cold stress and its effects can vary across different areas of the country. In regions relatively unaccustomed to winter weather, near freezing temperatures are considered factors for cold stress. Whenever temperatures drop decidedly below normal and wind speed increases, heat can more rapidly leave the body. These weather-related...
