Keywords:Accident prevention, Construction, Dangerous substances, Emerging risks, Green jobs, Maintenance, Musculoskeletal disorders, Nanomaterials

Small-scale and domestic solar energy installations are widely used but only scant attention has been given to the associated occupational safety and health (OSH) aspects so far. From their manufacturing, transport, installation and maintenance to decommissioning and recycling, many workers’ groups in various types of workplaces and sectors are involved with such systems. This e-fact provides information on the work-related risk factors and OSH issues associated with domestic and small-scale solar energy installations across their life cycle.
