Description

On the occasion of the renovation of two of its workshops the Mercedes-Benz CTT plant in Molsheim, in the Bas-Rhin region, carried out an initiative to make its workstations safer, with the support of Carsat Alsace-Moselle, targeting in particular risks of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and those associated with welding fumes.

The CHSCT was involved in the discussions, and the improvements to the position were validated at a meeting. For example, the installation of a lifting table has greatly improved the working conditions. 

À l’occasion de la rénovation de deux de ses ateliers, l’établissement Mercedes-Benz CTT de Molsheim, dans le Bas-Rhin, a mené une démarche de sécurisation des postes de travail, avec l’appui de la Carsat Alsace-Moselle, en ciblant notamment les risques de troubles musculosquelettiques (TMS) et ceux associés aux fumées de soudage.

Le CHSCT a été associé aux réflexions, et les améliorations apportées au poste ont été validées en réunion. Par exemple, l’installation d’une table élévatrice a grandement amélioré les conditions de travail.
