Description

In this case study, Allo Cleaning is testing a new solution for washing windows at height without risk of falls. Carsat Nord-Est contributed financially to the purchase of this system, which is also beneficial in the prevention of chemical risk and musculoskeletal disorders. Indeed, a single pass is enough to clean the windows against three by the conventional method: a first for washing, a second with the squeegee and finally the passage of a wipe, with the need, between each step, to change the mouthpiece. Less repetitive movements of the wrist and arm, and therefore less risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), as well as saving time.

Allo Nettoyage teste une nouvelle solution pour laver les vitres en hauteur sans risque de chutes. La Carsat Nord-Est a participé financièrement à l’achat de ce système qui s’avère bénéfique également dans la prévention du risque chimique et des troubles musculosquelettiques. En effet, un seul passage suffit pour nettoyer les vitres contre trois par la méthode classique : un premier pour le lavage, un second avec la raclette et enfin le passage d’une lingette, avec la nécessité, entre chaque étape, de changer l’embout. Moins de mouvements répétitifs du poignet et du bras, et donc moins de risques de troubles musculosquelettiques (TMS), tout comme un gain de temps.
