||Twelve different models of tracked motorized drilling trucks with a single arm, weighing between 2 and 10 tons, were evaluated in terms of their occupational hazards. It was found that the operators are mainly exposed to three types of hazards: dust, noise and adverse weather conditions. Exposure to dust and noise is a function of the equipment's age and type (pneumatic or hydraulic, with or without aspiration, position of the hammer drill, etc.). Personal protective equipment must in particular include protection against the weather, ear protection and protection of the eyes against particle impact. Results are presented in graphical form.
