Risk-free workplaces for healthy farm workers - start with OiRA!
Agriculture is among the most dangerous sectors in Europe. Farmers are exposed to a wide range of risks such as accidents involving machinery and livestock, handling of pesticides and other chemicals, vibration and noise, exposition to bad weather and physical risks as for example working at height.
However, occupational hazards in agriculture can be successfully assessed and managed. 12 Online interactive Risk Assessment (OiRA) tools have been created to evaluate the risks in this sector, and three more are under development (two in Belgium and one in Greece)
You can find the tools here.
