Preventing workplace risks in Lithuanian SMEs: practical demonstration of OiRA tools
On 18 April, our focal point in Lithuania, the State Labour Inspectorate, is training delegates from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) and other work safety specialists on how to carry out risk assessments in the workplace.
The speakers will introduce the over 20 Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tools available in Lithuania through a practical demonstration. The tools cover different sectors such as construction and maintenance, manufacturing, office work, retail trade, education and many more. They will also show an additional tool developed by European experts to prevent Covid-19 in the workplace.
During the workshop, participants will learn how to identify and assess potential or existing occupational risks in their workplaces and introduce preventive measures to eliminate or reduce them using the OiRA tools.
The speakers will also present other projects carried out by EU-OSHA.
