Obligation of the employer to carry out, with the help of the doctor of job,

- An inventory of risky jobs
- Update at least every 3 years
- and communicate the results Occupational Health Department

In the absence of communication, the health department may draw up a list of
ex officio on the advice of the supervisory authority of labour and mines


- Manual load carrying

- Articular and para-articular pathologies, some of which are recognised as occupational diseases

- Physical efforts
- Extended postures


- The lungs are both a target organ and a pathway entry for many pollutants mediated by inspired air.
- Pneumopathies: asbestos, silica, hard metals, iron dust, aluminium, ...
- Respiratory cancer: asbestos, chromium, nickel, hard metals, hardwoods
- Allergies of the respiratory tract to organic substances (flour, cotton, ...) or inorganic (cobalt, ...)


Given the complexity of the composition of certain mixtures, it is also necessary to consider the nature of these products and consult the safety data sheets to determine their harmful effects.

- Dust of all kinds: mineral dust (stone cutting, etc.), dust
- Wood, metal dust, etc.
- Volatile chemical substances: Solvents, degreasers, paints, adhesives, strippers,
- Tars....
- Aerosols (surface treatment baths, machining centres with oils or cutting emulsions, etc.)
- Vapours (welding, vulcanisation processes, thermal manufacturing processes, etc.)

Specifically, dangerous substances assigned mentions R40 (suspected carcinogenicity), R45 (may cause cancer), R49 (may cause cancer by inhalation), R68 (irreversible effects) or substances released during certain industrial processes

risky job

Position that exposes the worker:

- a risk of occupational diseases
- to a specific risk of an occupational accident
- physical, biological and carcinogenic agents that may be harmful to health

The following are considered dangerous positions :

- any position involving an activity that may seriously endanger the safety and health of other workers or third parties.
- any position associated with the control of an installation, the failure of which may seriously endanger the safety and health of other workers or third parties.

Activities that aggravate reduced vigilance

- the use of neurotoxic substances
- the use of volatile organic substances
- Conditions that increase monotony and lead to hypovigilance
- Tasks that require sustained attention

Activities that require increased biological activation

- painstaking work
- Work carried out in an excessively hot or cold environment

Position with a particular and characteristic risk of a potentially serious accident. (Explosion - fall from height - confined space...)

- Scaffold Stand
- Column erector

Activity with serious danger for the worker or third parties

Machine operator

- Positions with hazardous activities with risk of accident with TIW > 3 months (e.g. forklift operator, machine operator, crane operator, etc.)
- Positions with tasks that can lead to irreversible disabling or even fatal pathologies.

Control of a plant with serious danger for workers and third parties in case of failure:

- Control station for production lines
- plant control station
- Air traffic controller - Rolling mill operator

Inventory of risky jobs

Main objective :

- Determination of medical surveillance in occupational medicine (frequency and content of regular examinations)

Other effects in vulnerable position :

- Compulsory medical examination before employment
- Obligation to undergo a medical examination for students
- Occupational ban for young workers
- Risk assessment for pregnant and breastfeeding women
with possible distance of the station

Other effects

- Adapted safety training for positions with serious health and safety risks to other workers or third parties.
- The number of risky positions also plays a role in calculating the number of designated workers the company must fill

Level 3 MediumEfforts should be made to reduce the risk, but the costs of prevention should be carefully assessed and limited
Level 4 EssentialShort-term reduction measures are required and significant resources may need to be made available to reduce the risk.
Level 5 unbearableWork should not be carried out or continued until the risk has been reduced

Risk assessment

Risk assessment is the systematic examination of :

- all aspects of the work that can lead to injuries,
- the means to eliminate hazards
- the preventive or protective measures taken or to be taken to manage these risks.

Hazard identification → Risk assessment → Elimination / reduction of risks

Workers with special risks:

- Disabled
- Young worker
- Older worker
- Pregnant/breastfeeding woman
- Untrained staff
- Workers with chronic diseases.
