Risks that ceramic tilers may encounter
Ceramic as a material is notoriously sharp when it brakes, creating a higher risk than most of the construction industry of cuts and grazes to hands. Additionally, when a tile is being snapped or cut, sharp pieces of ceramic can be ejected that pose a the hazard of strike wounds to the eyes and face.
Falls from height usually involving step ladders, toolboxes or hop-ups are a common accident as well as same level slips, trips and falls, particularly if the floor area becomes wet.
Electric shocks if work is carried out without isolating the supply are a high risk factor, and even if a supply has been isolated, cables may come loose when fitting tiles behind switches and sockets.
Manual handling, repetitive work and working in a confined space can cause musculoskeletal injuries and occupational hazards such as getting tile adhesive in the skin can cause diseases such as dermatitis.
Accidental asbestos disturbance is always a risk in properties constructed before 2000 and can cause cancer and other diseases.
What H&S does your company need?
Legally a company just needs risk assessments for the tasks they carry out and COSHH assessments for products they use, along with a company H&S policy if they employ more than 4 staff.
However, Principal contractors and CDM site are aften requesting far more off their sub-contractors, including method statements, equality and diversity policies, training records, lone worker policies, PAT test records and more.
As a general rule though you won’t need more than a company H&S policy and the documents contained within this package for the majority of your work.

It seems ironic that a trained ceramic tiler needs training, but such is the modern world we live in.
Most principal contractors are more than happy with staff taking online training if the subject allows, and can insist on slips trips and falls training, manual handling training, working at height training and asbestos awareness training.
The formal online courses are convenient for the employer as staff can take them on their own devices at a time and place that suits them.
Sometimes the most important training is about site rules and conditions, and it’s about making sure the staff on a specific site know all of the site rules and what’s expected of them.
