||For industrial hygienists, the remediation of polluted industrial sites is a complex activity. Indeed, workers may be exposed to a wide range of hazards during earthmoving construction work, in particular due to the use of equipment that can cause accidents and the risk of being buried, the presence of chemicals (with poisoning, fire, and explosion hazards), the use of noisy and vibrating equipment, etc. A systematic organization of the work and prevention measures is therefore necessary. Among other considerations, it must be based on a detailed risk assessment.
