Risks plasterers can be exposed to:

Falls from height are a particular risk to plasterers, especially if purpose-built access equipment isn’t being used. On smaller sites, scaffold boards spanning milk crates or similar to create raised walkways are still a frequent sight.
The same applies to stairwells, where scaffold boards are often fed through ladder rungs for access.

Slips, trips, and falls are other common incidents, compounded by the size of the area a plasterer can work on and the fact that it’s a wet trade.

Eye injuries from plaster, dust and lime-based render are a common risk, as are manual handling injuries.

Additionally, there are occupational diseases due to asbestos disturbance, hearing loss and white finger from power tool use.

Plaster dust, other airborne dust and silica also contribute to lung-related occupational diseases.

It is important to have knowledge of the various documents needed for risk assessment and management in any project to ensure safety and compliance. Most contracts require certain documents, including risk assessments, method statements, and COSHH assessments, to ensure compliance with safety regulations.

It is important to note that if your company has five or more employees, providing a health and safety policy is mandatory. This document outlines the company's approach to managing health and safety and identifies who is responsible for what.

A risk assessment document is a crucial element that identifies the potential risks associated with a task and the control measures to eliminate or reduce the risks to an acceptable level. This document lists the tasks assessed for risks, possible hazards, and the necessary precautionary measures to be taken.

On the other hand, a method statement describes how a task is to be carried out. However, it is unnecessary to list every step because manufacturers often provide method statements with their products. For example, when mixing drywall adhesive, you write, "Mix adhesive according to the manufacturer's instructions."

COSHH assessments, or Control of Substances Hazardous to Health assessments, are crucial documents that should not be ignored. Your legal responsibility is to provide and list hazardous substances and their potential health and environmental risks. Additionally, they provide information on the necessary first aid and firefighting measures to be taken, ensuring the safety of everyone involved.

Plasterers are highly skilled and trained professionals, and many have been doing their job for years. However, the plastering industry still suffers from frequent fatalities, injuries, and occupational diseases. To address these issues, we recommend providing plasterers with a minimum of three areas of training: asbestos awareness, working at height, and manual handling. This training will equip tradespeople with the necessary knowledge and skills to perform their job and avoid accidents safely. Ultimately, this will benefit everyone involved in the plastering industry.
